Format: Paperback
Robert Van de Walle is without any doubts one of the biggest champions modern judo has ever known. His superb technique and tremendous judopower in combination with his spartanic training methods, made him to a world-wide respected judoka. He's the 1980 olympic champion under 95 kg. (he won the final with a spectacular counter against Russian's Kubhuluri in Moscou). Even when he was already in his mid 30's he won a bronze medal at the 1988 Seoul Olympics. In this excellent book he shows us in a clear way the most effective attacks, counters and sutemi-waza. Many of these techniques applied by Van de Walle are nowadays known as "Russian Judo". I bought this book 7 years ago and untill now it's definitely the best one published in the Ippon Books series. Robert Van de Walle's book is indispensable in each judoka's library.

A worldclass book written by a worldclass JudoKa. Van de walle gives detailed descriptions and variations to the three comman pickups, Te guruma, Morote gari and Kata guruma. The book clearly shows that Van de Walle has extensive knowledge of these techniques. Also the book shows proof of the effectivness of the techniques by showing photos of them in use in competition. Along with references to other comman pickups by other great JudoKa from the past, this book is a serious must for any martial artist interested in perfecting there pick ups!!

I bought this book based on other reviews and from what I'd read about the Judo Masterclass Technique series.
It is well written, provides good photos and explanations.
I'm returning to judo after a long break and hadn't realised that 'pick ups' are no longer allowed (new rule i understand from 2012). So bear in mind when buying the book that you won't be able to put what you learn into practise on the mats.

Still a great book but if I'd known before I probably wouldn't have bought it.

This is a book that realy made a few "aha" thoughts for me. Good picture series and explanations to the pick-ups so this isn't anything to hesitate over! Buy it and improve your competition on the Tatami.
