Jigoro Kano, Founder of Judo (5)

Let me say a few words about the early days of the Kano Private School, which was founded at about the same time as the Kodokan. The Kano Private School, like the Kodokan, started with just a handful of live-in students and staff. The students consisted of several young people who had been placed with me for instruction and supervision by my relatives and acquaintances, and the live-in students were made up of several private school students whom I supported in exchange for their help in teaching Judo to the others. Thus, we didn’t have any strict rules in the beginning, and the school was very small but had a very homey atmosphere.
