Jigoro Kano, Founder of Judo

In recent issues of this magazine we have attempted to gradually expand the scope of our coverage. In keeping with this theme, we introduce in this issue the first installment of a series of autobiographical essays by Jigoro Kano, the Founder of Judo. Our focus will be on the roots of Judo, more specifically, the transition from the jujutsu forms surviving in the Meiji era to the colorful early days of Kodokan Judo in the first decades of this century.
