Reviews - What do customers think about Championship Judo?
Modern Judo by a world champion Apr 3, 2007
Championship Judo is written by Mike Swain, World Champion, Olympic medalist and a writer of several books, videos and DVDs of grappling. The book si intended to intermediate, modern Judoka or grappler that is interested on more than the basics.
The book starts with ordinary stuff; bio, falling, basic gripping, etc. The throwing section shows the standard way plus competitive variations, a big plus. The groundwork part is well thought of and shows plenty of turns, wicked chokes and escapes. A much more thorough treatment than inmany current books.
The competitive Judo section covers advanced gripping (hard to find elsewhere), transitions to groundwork. The final section of the book is dedicated to excercises and sample programs.
For modest sum of money you get a good solid book with much content. Would have rated this a five star, but for typos in japanese terminology with small black and white pictures.
