    1952 A young Daigo Toshirō sensei in Munich

    Post by Reinberger on Mon Feb 09, 2015 11:55 am

    More than six decades ago, at circus Krone in Munich, a young Japanese world champion displayed his jūdō at the 10 best Bavarians, including three German champions. Only Armin Aigner, the German heavyweight champion, required some effort, but finally Daigo Toshirō threw him also.

    Click at the image, and look at 07:56:03 - 09:03:22 of this video (you can simply start "Cut 1" from the "List of Sequences" on the right side of page):

    I do not believe that Daigo-sensei was ever World Champion. The first WC were held in 1956 and were won by the late Shokichi Natsui. It is good to see footage of him as a young man though.

    Very nice footage! Thanks a lot!

    Daigo was World Champion twice, when he won the All Japan in 1951 and 1954.

    Thats the same as in American Football. The Super Bowl Champion is World Champion.

    There were simple no opponents for Daigo in countries outside of Japan ;-)

    On the over hand ...

    En 1951, alors qu'il est déjà sextuple champion de France, il devient champion d'Europe 3e dan. Il se voit alors proposer ainsi qu'aux neuf autres meilleurs judoka Français par la Fédération japonaise un combat avec leur champion Toshiro Daïgo (6e dan) en prévision de l'organisation des premiers championnat mondiaux (1956). Le combat a lieu au Vélodrome d'Hiver devant 17 000 spectateurs. Daïgo décide de combattre en conservant sa ceinture de 6e dan (rouge et blanche) ce qui interdit à ses adversaires moins gradé de le faire tomber, de Herdt résiste pendant 22 minutes aux assauts de son adversaire et le combat se termine sur un match nul historique.

    Not sure winning the All Japan's means you can call yourself World Champion, and Daido-sensei himself does not.

    I would agree though that for a long time winning th All Japan's was harder than winning the World's due to the strength in depth in Japan..
