Book Description:

Takahiko Ishikawa was twice the All-Japan judo champion and a judo instructor in the rigorous Tokyo Metropolitan Police training program. He was a pioneer in the field of progressive weight training methods as an adjunct to martial arts training.

Donn Draeger was an internationally recognized authority on the martial arts of Asia and the author of many books on the subject, including Tuttle's six-volume Practical Karate series and, as co-author, Tuttle's Judo: Formal Techniques, which has sold TK copies since it was issued in paperback in 1990. A pioneer Westerner in the practice of Japanese martial arts, he was the first non-Japanese to compete in the All-Japan High-Rank Holders' Judo Tournament at the Kodokan.
A product of over twenty years of exhaustive research, Judo Training Methods is a comprehensive examination of the Japanese martial art of judo written by martial arts authority Donn Draeger and judo champion and instructor Takahiko Ishikawa. Although the examples are geared toward judo, the training and conditioning methods set out are valuable for all martial artists and athletes, whatever their art or sport. Judo Training Methods is an "encyclopedia of judo" covering not only Judo techniques and training methods but also dojo etiquette, tournament rules, and promotion requirements. The text features over 1,000 photos and 200 conditioning exercises. A perfect introduction to Judo for beginners, the exercises in this classic text are also valuable conditioning exercises for football, basketball, track, swimming, wrestling, boxing, tennis, baseball, mixed martial arts and more!
