World judo champion Katsuhiko Kashiwazaki provides detailed instructions for 64 judo moves. His words are accompanied by Terence Donovan's wonderful photographs of the moves in action. The book was conceived and written during Kashiwazaki's stay in England in 1983-4 and is the first time he set down his ideas on paper. Donovan came on board as a Judo fan and a black belt holder. The book is now a collectors' item and remains a classic text for every Judo enthusiast.
