Jigoro Kano Genius,
This review is from: Mind Over Muscle: Writings from the Founder of Judo (Hardcover)
I really loved reading this book. Its pages will not teach you directly how to strangle, throw or strike, but if what Kano writes is absorbed it will provide insight into all three and more. In the book Kano explains his concept of seiryoku zenyo (maximum efficiency)and his philosophy behind Kodokan Judo. This is not a book that will benefit only those practising or interested in judo; its lessons can be applied to many general areas of life. Thoroughly recommended.
