    I guess in places where there are no skunks people have not become familiar with the term "skunk belt."

    It's perceived as indicating their belt is "different" (ie less than) a males, and for yudansha does have an unfortunate resemblance to certain small mammals.
    Much text wasted on the issue on the old forum.

    Regardless of the arguments, you're not going to convince someone once their feminist hackles are up.

    These are the posters for which I translated a number of Kano shihan's sayings.

    The picture is of Kano shihan and his lifelong friend Dr. Godai (left) playing go. I forget the occasion.

    Dr. Godai was a medical school graduate of what became the University of Tokyo with Kano shihan. Godai was famous in his own right, a renown physician. Dr. Godai and Kano shihan, as young students, practiced jujutsu together and were called upon to demonstrate jujutsu to former US President Grant during his visit to Japan. Apparently Godai stopped practicing jujutsu sometime after graduating university.

    Years later, Kano shihan wrote that Godai would have made a great judoka if he had chosen to continue his practice!

    柔道の根本義は、
    精力の最善活用である。
    言い換えれば、善を目的として
    精力を最有効に働かせることである。
    The basic teaching of Judo is
    Best Use of Energy.
    Said another way, to apply oneself to use
    one's energy in the highest and best manner
    with virtue as the objective.

    すみやかに最善を選んで実行せよ
    Choose the best promptly and implement.

    What would be cool is if some additional information about the photos could be included. Perhaps on a page 2, meant to be printed on the flip side, a fine-print caption or as pdf file metadata.
    Not all of us are sufficient scholars of judo history to recognize the photos, including who is present, what is the context and how it relates to the quotation in question.
