Para los interesados en el judo viejuno

Mensaje por Nocaut » 22 May 2013 15:34

Hola todos, para los aficionados a la historia y sociología de la cosa

He encontrado en judo info la correspondencia entre la primera mujer no japonesa cinturón negro de judo (1934) y Koizumi, su maestro en Londres.

Me ha parecido muy interesante, asi que lo comparto

Está en ingles, claro

Saludos
Edito para incluir la biogarfia que aparece en el texto que me parece curiosa

Ichiro Hatta (1906-1983) was a pioneer of freestyle wrestling in Japan, and a coach of the Japanese Olympic wrestling team. In 1929 as a 4th degree black belt he participated as a member of the Waseda University Judo Team that toured the United States promoting Judo. After learning about the effectiveness of western wrestling he introduced it to Japan. In 1931 he started Japan's first freestyle wrestling program at Waseda University. In 1932 he represented Japan in wrestling in the Olympic Games Los Angeles, and in 1936 he coached the Japanese wrestling team at the Olympics in Berlin. Subsequently, he encouraged both Japan and the United States to exchange teams in various age groups for competition and cultural enhancement. His efforts advanced wrestling in both countries. For over seventy-four years, he attempted to bring nations of the world together in understanding through sports. He became an 8th degree black belt in Judo and Aikido, as well as a 7th degree black belt in Kendo. He also served as a senator in the Japanese Diet.
