    1892 lecture on Judo by Mr. Shidachi, London

    This is one of the oldest English language descriptions of judo. I think only the Kano lecture in 1888 and Lafcadio Hearn's essay are earlier for major discussions.

    Do you have more info on Shidachi's article? All I can find is the following, which is a rewrite based on Shidachi's lecture.

    Japanese Fighting: Self-Defence By Sleight Of Body

    By G. B. Burgin, illustrations by Geo. Hutchinson
    Originally published in The Idler, 2 (London: October, 1892), 281-286. George Brown Burgin (1856-1944) was a co-editor of The Idler, along with Robert Barr and Jerome K. Jerome.

    (available on EJMAS, sorry, I don't have enough posts to include the link yet).
