'On the Back' of Judo Foundtion Skills
'Judo Foundation Skills' provides clear answers to a wide range of questions faced by the author during his 30 years of teaching judo.
The book includes an account of the origins and etiquette of Judo and explains, in everyday English, many of the terms used to allow young people, parents, beginners and more advanced judoka to share their understanding.
Used as a guide, this book provides illustrated details of the basic skills that form the key elements of Judo techniques and explains the range of activities the beginner will use to develop these skills.
The author describes, in easy-to-follow language, how the understanding of simple body mechanics influences how the beginner learns these key elements by using safe, effective, stable movement patterns.
While the focus of this book is on the early stages of learning Judo, it also provides an outline of how these basic techniques form a stable foundation on which the future safe application of Judo skills may be developed.
