    This is what I dislike most about it. You can never be definitive on anything if any crackpot has a differing opinion they want to interject.

    Interesting series of coincidence. Similiar information is contained in the entry atAnswers.com

    However their source is Wikopedia.

    There is however a thorough thread on the Judo History website, here is the link:
    Thread from Judo History

    Interesting correction is that he was leaving Canada on his way to Japan, not the US. So the Wikopedia entry falls apart there as well.

    Slightly off-topic question. Is Wikopedia open to editing by anyone? That pretty much throws it into a whole other area completely.

    Are you from another planet?
    Yes, Wikipedia is for any and all. That's why they have thousands of geekdork mods.

    Thanks Meng Mao, but yes, you have blown my cover, the mothership will be picking me back up shortly. First time I've wandered into Wikopedia for anything I actually wanted to read - this one is fairly obviously crap. Strange idea overall, create an encyclopedia that anyone can update information or change pages. Someone could just wander around aimlessly erasing information.

    Joe Svinth discussed the Kano-murder idea briefly in his "Getting a Grip: Judo in the Nikkei Communities of the Pacific Northwest 1900-1950." You can find it at www.ejmas.com if you're interested (I recommend it for those interested in early US jujutsu and mixed jj-wrestling matches).

    Anyway, Joe's points were that: a) Japanese assassin's tended to be a little more direct, and b) the death certificate cause of pneumonia is consistent with the accounts of Kano's fellow travelers.

    Of course he was murdered. Think about it. People don't die right away from food poisoning.
