    is this a Kano quote ?

    Hello all, it has been awhile since I last visited here.

    I stumbled on this supposed Kano quote, somewhere on the Internets :
    "You fought like young bulls locking horns; there was nothing refined or dignified about any of the techniques I witnessed today. I never taught anyone to do Kodokan Judo like that. If all you can think about is winning through brute strength, that will be the end of Kodokan Judo"

    So, my question to you, men of Culture and fine taste, does anyone knows where it came from ?

    I do kind of like it, so I am curious.

    Regards to all of you,
    J-F.

    I've seen it here, in Dutch, which is not a problem for Jihef: http://www.truefork.org/Hajime/jujutsu_judo.htm. Maybe you can find out where Eli Steenput has found the quote.

    Well, I asked him, and he translated it from… Steven R. Cunningham also.

    So, the same source…

    Hmmm and with the disclaimer below that page ("*Most of this is from oral transmissions (kuden), personal notes, and so on. In some cases, my ear may not have been able to properly discriminate the Japanese sounds, so I apologize for any errors. Undoubtedly, there are also omissions. ") I doubt that this quote is a 'certified' Kano quote. Although it's not a word that doesn't fit in. Kano had such opinions about judo and brute strength.
