“This book gives the reader an historical and philosophical perspective as well as an introduction to the physical mechanics of judo, which in retrospect seems an essential approach. Tello demystifies what goes on in a class, and I found myself more and more drawn into the idea of exploring this martial art more fully … Rodolfo Tello’s coverage of his subject is enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and well-presented.” –Jack Magnus, Readers’ Favorite.

“An informative text, replete with the basic knowledge one needs to get started in judo … [Its] sources extend beyond the textual to real-life experiences, such as visiting the Kodokan Judo Institution in Tokyo, Japan. In all, as a primer, Tello’s Judo serves as a motivational guide, so that one’s experience in the art of judo is an empowering one.” — Alysha Allen, Readers’ Favorite. [Read the full review here]
