The Kano Society

The Bulletin


Welcome to the 'Bulletin'

This is our on-line newsletter about Judo and the Kano Society 

The 'Bulletin' is produced at regular intervals and is available only on line.  Feel free to print off and distribute to colleagues and friends who you think may be interested.

The 'Bulletin' depends on you all ... we need articles and contributions. This may be in the form of news, interesting bits and pieces, photographs or reminiscences and historical material. 

Write in via our contact form  and we will get back to you with our email address for sending in the article or other material.

We aim to establish an archive of Judo material which will be thus preserved for the future. The late Trevor Leggett had given permission to use his material as have other writers such as Richard Bowen, Syd Hoare  who translated original material from the Japanese including a quantity of Kano's writings which had not previously been available in English.

We are also aware that we are a Society with an International membership and hence produce material which will reflect this varied background.

We do hope you will enjoy the 'Bulletin' and make it your own.
