This book is a collection of the life's work and essential teachings of Jigoro Kano, who founded Kodokan Judo in Tokyo in 1882. Kodokan Judo was for Kano the culmination of a lifelong devotion to the jujutsu of the past, which he reorganized along educational lines while taking great care to retain its classical traditions. In doing so, he opened the path from jutsu (skill) to do (way), and broadened the horizons of knowledge until he reached the point at which he began to advocate seiryoku zenyo (maximum efficiency) and jita kyoei (mutual prosperity), which represent the universality and ideal of human existence, and are the core values of judo. Throughout his life, Kano repeatedly emphasized grasping the correct meaning of judo and putting it into practice. That is to say, one must understand that judo is the way by which one can make the best use of one's mental and physical energy, and put that into use for the good of society. Because judo was defined in this way, it became subsumed into an altogether richer, more complex, and universal judo, which in turn evolved into a principle that can be applied across the spectrum of human life. The circumstances surrounding the development of judo are described throughout this book, as are its underlying principles, which the author believes have universal applicability to everyday life. In the annals of Japan's modern martial arts, no name is better known than that of Jigoro Kano. Born in 1860 in Hyogo Prefecture, he created Kodokan Judo in 1882, the year after he graduated from Tokyo Imperial University, majoring in literature, politics, and political economy. He was a professor and principal of Gakushuin, principal of the First Higher School, and later, the Tokyo Higher Normal School, and in 1889, as a member of the Imperial Household Department, he made a study tour of European Educational institutions. He became the first Japanese member of the International Olympic Committee in 1909 and the first president of the Japan Amateur Sports Association when it was founded in 1911. Elected to the House of Peers in 1922, he died at sea aboard the Hikawa Maru in 1938 while returning from an IOC meeting in Cairo. Foreword 1.
