However, I do not think that Kano himself formalized the KOSEN set of rules or competition system. I would say it's a working hypothesis.
Any "judo" in 1874 was not Kodokan Judo. The term "judo" was used I think by Jikishin Ryu and Kito Ryu. Kano changed "kano ryu ju jutsu" to Kodokan Judo to distinguish it from the others.

Helio was taught the techniques Kodokan Judo, which is all about smaller defeating larger/stronger opponents.
BJJ is not Kodokan Judo philosphically. It is BJJ. As I posted somewhere in this thread, character develpment via many activities is not unique to Judo. Nor do I deny that there may be some or even many BJJ teachers who see perfection of the individual part of BJJ.

I'd like to know some of your sources for my own information, as you seem to have quite a bit of background knowledge/information. Do you by chance read/write/speak Japanese? Or have you paid a translator?

Judo wasn't founded until 1882, and wasn't commonly referred to as Judo until sometime after that.
What's confusing is that something called Judo did exist prior to the founding of the Kodokan, but it had/has no connection to Kano's system.

On another note, how did I get a "Judo Black Belt" tag over my posts. I don't recall telling anyone about it, although Mark Tripp knows I am, as do perhaps some other as yet unidentified posters.
