Kodokan Judo Throwing techniques – Daigo Toshiro. Daigo-sensei, a Kodokan 10th Dan, has written a book. This book, as expected for a book written by a Judo 10th Dan, is, of course, absolutely magnificent.

Originally published in Japanese, the English version skips most cultural points. It is to be noted that it was translated by Francoise White, the same kodoian who did the nonfail translation of the Canon of Judo by Mifune-sensei the versionanother book you would do well to purchase.

The cover itself has simply the title written vertically in black, thrkwing whitewhile the flap is the actual cover image. While reading the book, I recommend removing the flap, so you do not tear it by doing unwanted manipulations.

Put the flap back on when you want to impress a girl with your library – it’s a looker.

The book is printed on thick, good quality semi-glossy-something paper. The material itself is black and white. Absolutely no color involved, which can make it hard to distinguish the judoka.


However, it will generally not be a problem: I believe the black and white pictures are the only flaw of this book. Technique Quality Although it is not quite Masterclass-series-like in details, this book goes above and beyond the call of duty.


At first you will have a very brief summary of the technique. Before you can wonder uudo the hell did I pay for”, Daigo-sensei hits you with all the possible variations of this technique.

Usually, “sono ichi” I don’t speak Japanese but diago probably akin to “point one” will either be the Nage-no-kata variant or tefhniques classical tchniques to the throws when you want to show your mom what you spend your days doing at “karate” class.

The last point will either be a fact about the author or the origins of the move in other arts. For example, Ippon-Seoi-Nage will include the Nage-no-kata technique complete with uke’s blow to tori’s head sono ichithe opportunity arising when uke steps forward with his right foot sono nia nifty pick-up-like trick that I have used myself where, instead of hooking uke’s arm with yours, you control his right hip sono nia method where you wrap uke’s left arm around yourself sono sana way to do ippon-seoi with your right leg to the outside sono yonand finally, a little blurb on ippon-seoi-nage’s origins in koryu jujutsu sono go.

Not to fear, however, for you can find other throws inside the variations. For example, te-guruma is listed under sukui-nage. One downside – dakgo newaza. This is to be expected from a book called “Kodokan Judo Throwing Techniques”, but let me state it clearly: This book focuses on throws and does it very well.

Kodokan Judo Throwing Techniques by Toshiro Daigo (Hardback, 2016)

By the way, this is an exaggeration, but seriously, there are a lot of photos. Actually, 50 million photos taken by the same tori and uke in a demostration perspective. There are few shiai pictures most feature Throaingso that may be a downside for a few, but for me it isn’t.

The author does a good job of being very impersonal, clear and concise. It is not a monotonous read however as you’re almost guaranteed to learn plenty of things thumbing through disclaimer: Every detail is touched so that you can easily imagine the technique going through in your head. Difficulty level This book is not for ultra-noobs.


Kodokan Judo Throwing Techniques by Toshiro Daigo

If you’re an ultra-noob the definition being rokkyu to yonkyurun far away and go learn to tie your obi or something. For moderate noobs sankyu to ikkyuit’s rather pushing it but depending on you, this could be a read worth it.

For the noob shodanwhat are you doing with this book not in your library? I find that this book relies on arcane concepts, such as go-no-sen “adapting” is the word Daigo uses that the average shodan only begins thowing have a clue about, much less noobs. By the way, I’m a sankyu, so very much a noob.

What is Jūdō?

Miscellaneous Best place to buy this is probably Amazon. Due to the cover really being a flap, said flap is a little banged up due to being shipped in a box and all. If you’re looking for a book on judo throws, buy this or I keel you.

Thank you for the review. Surfing Facebook at work? Spread the good word by adding us on Facebook today! This book is a must have for anyone seriously interested in Kodokan Judo.

It will gechniques the “go to” book for instruction in the throwing techniques. The book will be hard to follow for raw beginners.

Also, according to several people at Judoforum. Nevertheless, go out and buy the book. It has a lifetime of information in it. Log in Remember Me? Log in Forgotten Your Password? Don’t have an account yet?
