    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Book recommendation for Judo please..

    I'd like some suggestions and recommendations for good introductory Judo book that would be suitable for a 5 year old child with a reading age of 7 - 8.

    Like all young kids he enjoys the general rolling around part of Judo lessons but tends to lose focus and sometimes motivation during randori. I try and coach and encourage him as much as I can but I think he might retain some of the information better if he 'discovered' the information himself through his own reading.

    I have an old printing of this book, but it is well reviewed as a great "mile-wide, inch deep" book on Judo.

    It has been in print since 1979, and is relatively short (~200 pages).

    It doesn't do a deep dive in every area but as an intro text it's great.
