The ‘holy grail’ of the Judo community, this nifune book will wreak havoc on your wallet if you can find someone willing to part with it. The first thing noticeable about the book is the hardbound covering, it’s a Judogi material!

The English is absolutely horrible, a great deal of time is cano teasing out some meaning from some sentences, but the pictures are generally first rate. The most interesting thing about this book is the ‘reference’ techniques, that you won’t find easily elsewhere Good luck locating a copy!

Historic Development Mifne can safely be said that the feats of strength man performs were coeval with the creation of the human beings and that Judo was originated from some of such feats.

Judo is characterized, however, with the soundest Japanese specific feature imaginable which values no doubt pure reason and is naive and natural; this is developed gradually to the perfect physical ccanon worth being proud of in all the world as perfect feats beautified, internal and external. This is attributable to the moral factor of the gist developed, and what Judo has enjoyed in the tradition and culture descended down in Mmifune.

Of course, there is much difference between the feats of strength of olden days and Judo of today, yet when we refer to the Koji-Ki Ancient Chronicle we learn that there existed in ancient Japan a feat of strength not simply aiming at murderous and outrageous fight but completing the strength, physical and spiritual, through mutual under-standing.

In one of the mythological stories in the volume 1 of the Koji-Ki the following is cited: Iudo pledged allegiance to them, yet he wished to consult with his two sons, Kotoyonushi-no-Kami and Tate-Minamata-no-Kami, the former agreed to his father’s opinion and insisted that the land should be surrendered to the son of Amaterasu Ohmikami, while mifnue latter or Tate-Minagata-no-Kami, appearing with a big stone on hand, said, ‘What are you?

Stop trying to protest against our occupation of the land! Come on, let’s settle the matter by force. In another part of the History of Japan it is recorded that in the 7th year of the reign of’ Emperor Suijin 28 B. Tomaketsu-Hayato performed fanon kind of wrestling. The wrestling in those times was a desperate match and Tomaketsu-Hayato was supposed to be the best wrestler of the age and very arrogant and insolent, but when he played a match with Nomi-no-Sukune by order of the Emperor, he was defeated and kicked down to death.

Nomi-no-Sukune is said to be the very founder of Judo. Japanese wrestling and Judo at the beginning were not distinctive, but wrestling though maintaining Japanese characteristic began gradually to have a factor of a professional feat and a performance, while Judo has developed as an educational and rational exercise.

Origination of Technique and Turning-point of Principles One thousand and a few hundred years or two thousand and a few hundred years had elapsed before Japan was unified and stood as a modern nation, and all the while the strife for power produced samurai known for their force of arms. And their military influence gradually growing was followed by natural development of a variety of martial arts. Fight with weapons was decided by the final close-combat, and in such cases importance began to be attached to valour and technique, which led to the organization of Jujutsu as martial arms to develop to Judo.

It was from the Tokugawa era on that Jujutsu literature began to be compiled, yet the first record of something like Jujutsu is quoted in Judo-higaku-sho Important Records of Judo as “grapple was in vogue since Eisho era. It was the age of civil wars and about years ago. Thenceforth, the origin of various branches of Jujutsu and other outlines in chronological order are as follows: The Honcho-Bugei-Shoden says, “Nobody knows where Araki Muninsai is from and little is known of his deeds, yet his excellent technique in arresting criminals is reknowned.


Canon of Judo – Principle and Technique

So Araki Muninsai micune be the originator of the Branch. The year when the school was formed is not known, but it is estimated to be in the Oda-Toyotomi era Tensho era, — 9. According to Dobogoyen the title of a bookNomura Gen-i of Shinmachi was a disciple of Hitotsubashi Jyokensai, a celebrated master of Jujutsu that time.

Thus Gen-i is quoted to have cheered Miyamoto Musashi when the latter was going to visit the soldiers at the front when riots took place at Shimabara in the 15th year of Kan-en.

In the same hook, a paragraph says Nomura Gen-i is the originator of Judo school and an expert Jujutsu-man, formerly a disciple uncover Hitotsubashi Jokensai, encl used to live afterwards at Shinmachi in Edo. Sawa Mifnue, a disciple of Gen-i is also a good hand at Juki, or Jujutsu and Kiai or mesmeric power put together, and resided at Nichome, which proves the og that at that time there was miufne a master hand of Juki and that a feat of arms called ‘Ju’ was prevalent.

On the other hand, paragraph of the preface to Ju of Shin-shin Branch denote: Shibukawa Rangoro Hudo, a senior disciple of Sekiguchi Hachiro-zaemon, the second-generation master of Sekiguchi Branch, originated Shibukawa School art, and in those days promulgation of Jujutsu was made by many new schools of Jujutsu. While Chen was in Edo present Tokyo he resided temporarily at the Kokuseiji Temple at Azabu and one day incidentally lectured a Chinese origin of feats similar to Ju to Fukuno Hichirouemon, Isomi Iirozaemon, Miura Yojiuemon and others, lordless samurai residing at the non-converts’ dormitory.

Stimulated by the story, the three samurai devised various ways, especially Fukuno studied, contrived and opened a new branch, Fukuno Branch, which sometimes was called Ryoi-shinto Branch and remained with Miura Branch originated by Miura Yojiuemon, while from Fukuno Branch was founded Kito Branch later or Terada Masashige, started Kito Branch and Yoshimura Hyosuke, Terada’s disciple and Horiuchi Jidaku, Yoshimura’s disciple, were all celebrated Judo-men, especially Horiuchi who never got married but endeavored to promulgate Jujutsu all his life, and his senior pupils Terada Ichiemon of Kyoto and Takino Yugyo of Edo were reknowned all over Japan.

Hamano held an arena at Misuji-machi, Asakusa, and his disciples numbered 3, Thenceforth Kito Rranch was widely spread. In the volume 10 of it he tells, “According to ‘Secrecy of Pugilism,’ modern Jujutsu is what is termed pugilism in ‘Record of Feats of Arms’ and in olden times this was called ‘Tebaku.

There were, however, various branches coming from Fukuno School, especially Kito Branch was popular and all of them were fancied more authoritative to induce the public at large to believe that the secrecy of each branch was introduced from foreign countries. But this was a wrong and superficial idea in those times, for such idea ignores the old-established fact and deep-founded idea.

As to limits of Jujutsu no idea is fixed and definite: I quote the statement by Master Kano Jigoro as follows: But Kogusoku or arm grasping generally means training how to arrest, while body trick or Judo generally means the training how to grapple with armors for throwing.

In the aggregate, Jujutsu could be defined as an art or technique to attack barehanded or with a short weapon or defend himself from an opponent bare-handed or with the weapon.

Founding of Kodokan Through the Meiji Restoration, feudalistic administration was abolished and the people were elated with the so-called ‘civilization.

Canon Of Judo

About then, there lived at Daikucho, Nihonbashi, Fukuda Hachinosuke, once a master at the Institute of Martial Arts in the Tokugawa era and a celebrated master of Tenshin Shinyo School who unable to earn his livelihood by teaching Jujutsu mfiune took in the bone-setting as his occupation. Kifune Jigoro, who had taken much interest in Jujutsu in his early days, studied Jujutsu under Fukuda, while the former was mifuje years old, and after Fukuda’s death he continued his study and training under Ishizue Masatomo who had an arena at Otamaga-ike, Kanda.


Here Kano made himself master of the secret principles. However, Ishizue, too, died in the 14th year of Meiji, so Kano received instruction under Iikubo Kohei, a great master of Kito School, and juso a great deal under him.

Originally, in Tenshin Shinyo School, body attack and folding and fighting of body and arms are regarded as its basis, while the characteristic of Kito School was throwing technique, and the Kodokan Judo, originated by Master Kano owes very much to the ujdo two schools for the foundation of the technique.

Master Kano graduated from the Imperial University of Tokyo in the year of Meiji, but, not satisfactory to possess himself all what he had acquired through his study and training of Jujutsu, moved his abode in the 15th year of Meiji to Eishoji Temple at Shitaya, where he originated Judo out of Jujutsu which he had much reformed. He started Judo with much broader moral-culture added to martial art, and taught young disciples.

In fact, this was the very beginning of Kodokan and Master Kano was 23 years of age. The exercise hall was only a mat room occupying part of the temple and the trainees numbered only nine in all.

The reason why Master Kano originated Kodokan Judo was that whereas the Jujutsu of various schools or branches as feat of arms which so far existed had their own characteristics and defects in many points, and their direct aims were solely to acquire the ways to attack and defend.

So he desired to make it not only a feat of arms, but also a means to help physical and spiritual training to contribute most effectively in the cause of educational and cultural acquirements. The exercise hall at the Eishoji Temple was in a little while removed to Minami-jinbocho, Kanda, then to Kami-nibancho, Koji-machi, and then to Fujimicho, Kojimachi, and afterwards through Shimo-Tomizakacho, Koishikawa, and Sakashitamachi, Otsuka, until in January, the 9th year of Showaat the present site near Suido-bashi the Great Kodokan Hall was founded.

Really within about fifty years, a small arena of mat room developed to a gigantic mat hall with trainees numbering several hundred thousands. Furthermore, at present, Judo seems to be fascinating the people all over the world being diffused in the United Kingdom, the United States, France, Germany, Italy, the Soviet Union, etc. To show Judo is by means of technique, which is acquired by technical training based on the scientific study.
