The Handbook Of Judo - An Illustrated Step-by-Step Guide To Winning Sport Judo
Surprisingly good book on Judo. Has many odds & ends packed throughout the book that you'll not find documented anywhere else. Covers defenses to techniques that I've not seen discussed elsewhere. Very good section on Newaza. Although out-of-print, this is not normally difficult to locate at a very reasonable price.

THIS is a book about sport judo, which is practiced, much as boxing, wrestling, and fencing are, in a gymnasium (or dojo, as it is known). Judo is just what the name implies, a sport with rules of fair play, a prescribed costume, and frequent contests and tournaments. For several years now it has been sanctioned by the AAU in this country and by similar amateur sports organizations throughout the world.
Sport judo is taught and practiced with the primary goal of developing proficiency in organized competition. All the techniques discussed. in this book follow this basic pattern. However, as in the other "combative" sports, such as boxing, the methods are readily adaptable to self-defense.
Almost all sport judo practiced in the world today is conducted under methods, theories, nomenclature and techniques adopted by -- Dr. Jigoro Kano, who founded the Kodokan School in Tokyo late in the nineteenth century. For this reason, sport judo is often called Kodokan judo. Dr. Kano was to jujitsu what the Marquis of Queensbury was to fist-fighting.
Jujitsu is an older form of Japanese self-defense. It is still practiced throughout the world, and much of sport judo's techniques are drawn from it. There were, and still are, many other systems taught and practiced. Among these are Tai-jitsu, Yawara, Aikido, Taido and Karate, but few can be considered true sport; they are more accurately described as systems of unarmed combat.
It is not our desire to discuss the relative merits of these various systems, but merely to draw a distinction between sport judo and the many other systems which stress self-defense as their goal. Self-defense is not, specifically, a subject of this book, although much of this material is readily adaptable for this purpose.
We believe that both forms of the art, sport judo and self-defense, should be studied by the serious student. But self-defense is properly a separate subject, and space limitations prevent its being included in this book.
