    Kano Shihan

    When did Kano stop practicing judo? I read somewhere that he stopped in his mid thirties, yet I have seen old movies of him doing Ju No Kata and he appears much older than mid thirties.

    Unless you mean randori practice, I'd say he never really quit…

    That's my thought also.
    Thanks for your input.

    The last reference I recall of him participating in randori is when he was in his early 30's in some Kodokan event. After that he's always listed as performing kata.

    When he was 60 he stopped wearing keikogi, apparently except for a formal photo.
