    japanese dōjō architecture

    Post by noboru on Fri Sep 19, 2014 6:25 pm

    On the website http://www.dillonlin.net are articles about japanese dōjō architecture and two are from Taiwan (  dillonlin.net - notes on architecture, urbanism and dōjō architecture ).

    I found only one for judō ( Shichitokudō 七徳堂 ) - more for kendō and other budō/bujutsu, but the architecture of these buildings is very interesting, they are very nice places.

    Some from described places:

    Excellent website, thank you. I've seen many of the individual dojo but it was great to see the nice pics and the commentary.

    I am missing the basketball rings, the blue gi, the shouting children, balls, shoulder stripes, etc.

    Can you imagine doing kata in one of these dôjô ? The riai might actually come across as kata. These dôjô clearly need to be revised by the IJF !!

    I enjoyed seeing the dojo and I learned quite a bit from the detailed explanation of each location and its history.

    I just heard CK is planning a tour of the US, Germany, Russia, and other countries to study and collect photographic images of non-Japanese dojo. These will likely be part of a new chapter called Modern Developments in Judō in his upcoming book. It will feature not only the multifunctional architecture so common in public facilities, but the dress of the judoka which may unveil details about their local culture by careful observation of how they wear their hats, or the print on the hoodie worn under the judogi, or the style of watch worn while teaching. Plenty of attention will also be paid to mats and other fitness and athletic equipment seen in the modern dojo. Additional scrutiny will be focused on the patches, badges and logos seen in each dojo with complete analysis of the misused kanji and false symbolism so widespread in the west.

    It might take a long time to complete the project so I am hoping the photos are shared here first. When is that book coming out anyways?

    Yup, sounds about right:




    Just got an E-mail with an update from the paper manufacturer that they are well on their way engineering a kind of paper that might be strong enough to carry all the text ...

    Here's a preview:

    And that is only "the short introduction to the basics of Kodokan Judo" to be followed By 23 more voluminous volumes.

    Hey, hey, just finished a chapter about one kata, with two other kata chapters anticipated to be finished over the next 2 weeks. That makes 8 of the most difficult kata chapters finished, which is almost half way as far as the kata is concerned, but much of the other kata are far easier requiring much less dificult research.
