Very well presented book with a lot of useful information for the serious competitor. Even if the reader has just started, this book would be a good start to their library.

HASH(0x910300b4) out of 5 stars Terrific for both coaches and competitors 10 Feb. 2011
By Gary S. Goltz - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is an outstanding step by step guide for anyone serious about competing in judo and related arts like BJJ and MMA. Written by one of the most respected judo leaders in the world. Judo Gene LeBell said the best compliment you can get is to be called a 'Hayward' and I agree with him 100%. In his latest book all the secrets of what it takes today to become a world class champion are revealed in great detail.

HASH(0x910300cc) out of 5 stars Ron Angus is a true gentleman Judoka 1 July 2012
By John P. Splingaerd - Published on
Format: Paperback
I have worked out with Ron Angus in Canada and he is a true gentleman. A very clean fighter and when you gain an advantage on him, he concedes it like a gentleman. (I should say that if anyone is able to gain an advantage on Angus, he is a lucky man!). It was a pleasure to meet and work with Ron Angus so I wanted to have a copy of his book. Ron is a professional Judoka who has given up other opportunities in life to dedicate himself to Judo.
HASH(0x912d9624) out of 5 stars Coaching for Winners 20 Feb. 2012
By Edgar - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Great book! If you are a beginner, you will get a good idea of what coaches do or should do for their competitive players. If you are an experienced Judoka, you will get the information to apply good coaching to your competitive students. Some of the book is quite technical but still easily understandable with a little effort. I can't think of any reason that this book should not be in the library of any serious Judoka.
HASH(0x912d64a4) out of 5 stars A must for all judo coaches 11 Oct. 2011
By Training Director - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Read this book cover to cover in two days. An absolutely first class guide to junior, senior, and elite judo coaching and competition. No surprise that this is now used as the coaching manual for the US Judo Federation coaching certification program. Mark
HASH(0x91030c30) out of 5 stars Excellent Guide 12 Jun. 2012
By Jojo Aguilar - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is an excellent guide to judo for novices and veterans of the sport. The quality of the photos and the explanations are all crystal clear. I couldn't be any more happy with my purchase.
