3.0 out of 5 stars Buy the original version!, 22 Sept. 2006
This review is from: Kodokan Judo (Paperback)
Just a few comments, as I saw this book has 5 stars:

Several things have been changed, compared to the original

edition, and although one may find them minor, I believe them

to be significant. The translation of Kodokans motto par example:

The vital part is "conveniently forgotten", and many formulations

bear the same mark; strength is over-emphasized, technique close

to being ignored. So, 5 stars to First Edition, and minus 2 stars

for leaving out the hall-marks of Judo in this newer edition.

Fortunately, winds seem to change in Kodokan now, so maybe a

third, "un-revised", edition is on its way?
