    But sadly complete nonsense, sa far as judo is concerned. He wrote:

    "The book Dr. Bälz published in 1906 after returning to Germany, titled Das Kano Jiu-Jitsu (Jiudo) (The Kanō Jigorō Style of Jujitsu [Jūdō]), contributed greatly to popularizing the sport in his native country, and the book is read by jūdō enthusiasts in Germany even today. "

    He is writing about the german edition of Higashi/Hancock "The complete Kano Jiu-Jitsu", which has a) nothing to do with judo and b) Bälz did not publish it, but only wrote a forword...

    As WDax says....

    Did Heiko Bittman write in German, too? He wrote a Japanese book on Balz. Maybe the same thing.

    Yes - I think it was bilingual. http://www.bittmann-verlag.com/baelz.htm

    That reminds me.... I bought a copy when it came out and haven't read it. The German is of zero use to me, I even forgot it was bilingual.

    Did find Balz's book Awakening Japan in English, which is nice.
