    Budokwai Film 1949

    Post by wdax on Sun May 18, 2014 7:26 pm

    One of the most interesting documents about Judo around the time of WW2. Very interesting because of the meaning of Budokwai for the developement of judo in Europe.

    I would very much appreciate any observations the readers here have on the video.
    What does the most basic technique of Mr Koizumi tell us?

    Mr Koizumi is or was often referred to as the 'father of European judo'. Take a careful look at his approach to the kuzushi exercises he performs, the ashi waza etc. What do you see? Look in particular at the basics that physical judo are founded upon.

    I will add my own views after reading some of the replies.

    This could be a wonderful debate.

    PS. I only saw the first 20 minutes.

    There is a lot that you missed after the 20 minute mark. For exemple his ju no kata at 35:16 (I wonder if it was the same version he showed to Kano several years before) and his itsutsu.

    A lot of the ju-jitsu that came to NZ was taught in Holland by Jaap d'Age, who is known as a Kawaishi man but who trained at length with Koizumi. Certainly, many of the throws look familiar, though some do not. The kuzushi on many throws is interesting and quite different to 'mainstream' practice. Of course, I admire his 'recovery' posture; as a ju-jitsuka, this whole business of sacrificing every throw for ippon does my head in!

    There are some interesting things about Koizumi and his jûdô, one of them that he uses a different classification of throws. it would be interesting to know how that translated into the learning experience.
