    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.

    I found a newspaper article regarding Kano recovering from breaking several bones in practice in his early 30's. It was never made clear which bones.

    That could have taken the wind out of his sails.

    Takezoe Shin'ichiro was Kano's father in law. An interesting character, a noted Sinologist.

    There's an indication that Kano and his wife lived with him for a while.

    I found articles from 1912-11-09 (newspaper Narodní listy). There is info about visit of Kano Jigoro in Prague, Austrian-Hungarian monarchy this time other Czechia today. He traveled around european countries, in summer he was in July in Stockholm - IOC Meeting).

    There is info about invitation from czech IOC members, he interested about czech body system education and group SOKOL ( czech organization for body and mind improvement). He saw Prague too, met with leadears of city and czechosloval IOC members. Next 2 days he spent in czech mountains Krkonose with some czech IOC members and did 2 days trip on the mountain.




    In the first picture is article (above) about visits of Mr. Naoki Kano (rector of japanese emperor university in Tokio, professor chinese language and literature) in Prague in event naming new rector of czech Charles university.

    Could be Mr. Naoki Kano any related with Takezoe Kano?
