    Great stuff!  New judo mag, Judoka Quarterly.  http://judokaquarterly.com  

    The editor advises me they're giving away the first issue, which I highly recommend.  Great interviews, a very interesting history piece etc. This issue includes:

    To get your first issue of Judoka Quarterly, follow the below:

    I liked interview with Ezio Gamba, he told some very interesting sentences. For example part about religions/national/geographical groups in russian national team and how he solved these problems.

    Next interesting and very nice article (for me) is "How the Application of the Principles of Judo Contribute to Society" from Mike Callan ( http://www.judospace.com/about-us/who-we-are/dr-mike-callan/ ).
    The second and third chapters "Principle of maximum efficiency" and "Principle of mutual benefit" are very nice and there are very nice and easy explanations. These chapters could be nice to give them more publicity for judokas.

    But I dont understand the note in first chapter  "Principle of softness". The author wrote about reasons in international competition judo in recent years.
    "As we all know teh techniques of judo enable a smaller person to utilise the opponents own power to throw him in sectacular fashion, thus demonstrating the principle that Softness overcomes Hardness. Indeedm it is this drive to show the spectacular throwing technique of judo that motivates many of the rule changes to international competition judo in recent years. The implementation of the rule changes are a desire to demonstrate the fundamental principle of softness overcoming hardness, the principle of ju enshrined in the first kanji of name judo."

    I dont understand which rule changing are in concrete with this sense?
