    Incidentally, although the Hancock/Higashi book is not a reliable guide to early Kodokan judo, several books published in England during the first decade of the 1900s do fit that bill. The best of them would be "The Fine Art of Jiu-Jutsu" (1906) which was written by Emily Watts, an instructor at London's Golden Square Dojo under Sadekazu ("Raku") Uyenishi. Mrs. Watts' book is an excellent presentation of basic kata and waza and is probably the best guide to the early Kodokan style available in English.

    Uyenishi was one of the first professional jiujitsu instructors to teach the art outside of Japan, having been sent by Kano to teach at E.W. Barton-Wright's Bartitsu Club.

    Although Uyenishi did not specifically present his jiujitsu as being Kodokan, there is little doubt that both he and fellow former Bartitsu Club instructor Yukio Tani were following the latest developments in Tokyo. Both of their own books - "The Game of Jiu-jitsu for the use of Schools and Colleges" (Yukio Tani and Taro Miyake, 1906) and "the Text Book of Jiujitsu as Practiced in Japan" (Sadekazu Uyenishi and E.H. Nelson, 1905) - detail competitive jiujitsu according to the Western model of sport and physical education.
