              After conducting some studies and publishing several books related to Jigoro Kano's work, we focus now on which may be the most outstanding student of the founder of Judo; Master Kyuzo Mifune 10 dan. Mifune learned from the most traditional, pure and complete Judo source. An exam...ple of this is his extraordinary self defense method (Mifune Soen Goshin Jutsu), 30 techniques that were a benchmark at the time and which has been abandoned nowadays. Techniques of great value, which have obvious similarities with other forgotten Katas of Judo, such as Torite no Kata and techniques of Tenjin Shinyo Ryu Jujutsu and Yoshin ryu Jujutsu.

              For many years now, we have established a firm commitment to spread the authentic legacy of Kodokan Judo founder, Jigoro Kano. Through conferences, interviews, seminars in several countries and several books published in 4 languages we have managed to reach thousands of people ar...ound the world who have known principles, katas and techniques that are forgotten or disused today. As we all know, Kodokan Judo has been redirected solely towards the sporting side, turning its back on many aspects that made Kodokan Judo a precious and complete art. A situation that the current international Judo leaders are not interested in reversing. Our work of research, translation and verification has been hard, but thanks to our passion for the work of Jigoro Kano we have exposed much of what many teachers of Kodokan Judo and Jujutsu know and practice daily following the authentic legacy of Prof. Kano. This is not only limited to randori or shiai. In this book we made the study about the method of personal defense (Goshin Jutsu) of the teacher Kazuo Ito, who was undoubtedly the best student of Kyuzo Mifune. Both were exceptional Judokas, defenders of tradition, of the highest values of Budo and to protect the legacy of Jigoro Kano. Kyuzo Mifune and Kazuo Ito followed the teachings and advice of Jigoro Kano and years after his death they continued to teach the world a Judo complete, including in their works and videos various types of techniques that are not used today in sports Judo, as for example dislocations of dolls, knees, ankles, atemi waza and different forms of self-defense.

              Esta obra realiza un profundo e inedito estudio de 6 antiguas katas que estan practicamente en desuso, algunos de estos katas fueron creados directamente por Jigoro Kano y otros por alumnos de la primera generacion o por la direccion del Kodokan. Son por tanto parte del judo mas ...tradicional y merecen ocupar un lugar en la practica regular del judo y del jujutsu. Estos 6 katas tienen una belleza singular, dignos de ser preservados y difundidos para que puedan llegar a nuevas generaciones de Instructores y profesores, y devolver asi al Judo todo lo que se le ha ido perdiendo en el camino y honrar dignamente la memoria del maestro Jigoro Kano.

              Professor Jigoro Kano classified Kodokan Judo under what he called the 3 cultures or levels of Judo: Shobuho (as warrior and combat art), Rentaiho (as a physical and sports education system) and Shushinho (as a method for moral development), intellectual and ethical). On this occ...asion, the study is directed towards Shushinho, which according to Jigoro Kano is the highest level of Kodokan Judo. It is well known the capacity and depth that Kano showed in his writings and documents where we conclude that he was an exceptional man, an educator ahead of his time and a Bujutsu teacher who tirelessly helped preserve traditions while adapting the methodology of his school to modern times. Therefore, moral and intellectual development had a relevant role in the doctrine of the founder of Kodokan Judo. It is for this reason that we have ventured to collect, classify, translate and publish ancient writings by Jigoro Kano that appeared mainly in old interviews, contributions in newspapers and specialized magazines, in ancient Kodokan Judo readings, etc. We have divided it into 7 chapters arranged chronologically. In all the chapters, Kano speaks to us about the need to use time correctly, about austerity in expenses, he advises us on the ideal form of combat, feelings and of friendship, of the best way to resolve conflicts between people, of the values that must prevail in any society, of honesty, etc. Sometimes he even explains his doctrine in a hard, direct tone and with some criticism of what was happening in judo and in society at that time. Reading and assimilating each chapter makes the reader move to the mind of who was an exemplary man, of a visionary who knew how to extend the benefits of Kodokan Judo to Japan at that time and later to the rest of the world.

              El profesor Jigoro Kano clasifico el Judo Kodokan bajo lo que denomino las 3 culturas o niveles del Judo: Shobuho (como arte guerrero y de combate), Rentaiho (como sistema de educacion fisica y deportiva) y Shushinho (como metodo para el desarrollo moral, intelectual y etico). En... esta ocasion, el estudio esta dirigido hacia el Shushinho, que segun Jigoro Kano es el nivel mas alto del Judo. Es bien conocida la capacidad y profundidad que mostro Kano en sus escritos y documentos donde concluimos que fue un hombre excepcional, un educador adelantado a su epoca y un maestro de Bujutsu que ayudo incansablemente a preservar las tradiciones al mismo tiempo que adaptaba la metodologia de su escuela a los tiempos modernos. Por lo tanto, el desarrollo moral e intelectual tuvo un papel relevante en la doctrina del fundador del Judo Kodokan. Es por este motivo por el que nos hemos aventurado a recopilar, clasificar, traducir y publicar antiguos escritos de Jigoro Kano que aparecieron principalmente en viejas entrevistas, contribuciones en periodicos y revistas especializadas, en antiguas lecturas del Kodokan, etc. Lo hemos dividido en 7 capitulos ordenados cronologicamente. En todos los capitulos, Kano nos habla sobre la necesidad de usar el tiempo correctamente, de la austeridad en los gastos, nos aconseja sobre la forma ideal del combate, de los sentimientos y de la amistad, de la mejor forma de resolver los conflictos entre las personas, de los valores que deben imperar en cualquier sociedad, de la honestidad, etc. Incluso en algunas ocasiones explica su doctrina en un tono duro, directo y con algunas criticas a lo que estaba aconteciendo en el judo y en la sociedad de aquella epoca. Leyendo y asimilando cada capitulo hace que el lector se traslade a la mente de quien fue un hombre ejemplar, de un visionario que supo extender los beneficios del Judo al Japon de aquella epoca y posteriormente al resto del mundo.

              Taiho Jutsu is the method of defense and police action used by Japanese law enforcement and also the army. Since feudal times, some specialized groups of the samurai class had been assigned the task of identifying, arresting and transferring detainees under the orders of their su...periors. At the end of the 19th century, coinciding with the disappearance of the samurai, the first Japanese police forces appear. During the first half of the twentieth century, the Japanese police have the need to provide their agents with the training and knowledge necessary for the proper performance of their duties. For this purpose they have the best experts in Budo-Bujutsu (teachers of Judo and Jujutsu, Kenjutsu, Bojutsu, etc.) who develop a complete technical program under the name of Taiho Jutsu. This program was created in the 1920s and later updated in the 1950s. Contrary to what one might think, the techniques of the original Taiho Jutsu were simple, straightforward and without frills, seeking only effectiveness. In this work we study the history, evolution and the most used techniques of traditional Taiho Jutsu. At present, police defense training of most police forces in the West base their concepts and technique on Japanese Taiho Jutsu, with the logical updating of objectives and principles of each legislation. In this study we have spent almost 2 years, consulting with recognized experts in this field, collecting all possible documentation and even traveling to Japan, cradle of the birth of this formidable police method.

              This work makes a profound and unprecedented study of 6 ancient kata that are practically in disuse, some of these katas were created directly by Jigoro Kano and others by first generation students or by the direction of the Kodokan. They are therefore part of the more traditiona...l judo and deserve to occupy a place in the regular practice of judo and jujutsu. These 6 katas have a unique beauty, worthy of being preserved and spread so that they can reach new generations of Instructors and teachers, and thus return to Judo all that has been lost along the way and honorably honor the memory of the master Jigoro Kano.
