In addition to throwing and grappling, the important transitional movements, as well as grips, stances, and postures, are explained. The authors have, by studying the published and unpublished personal writings of Jigoro Kano (the founder of Kodokan Judo), been able to recapture the original spirit and intent of the judo kata, which they present in the standard Kodokan versions, as refined by generations of master judoka. --- Expertly written and richly illustrated, Judo Formal Techniques is the classic "kata bible" for judo student and instructor alike and a tremendous resource for martial arts practitioners outside the realms of judo and jiu jitsu."---, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo ///NOT SIGNED ---GUARANTEED to be AVAILABLE///
