    1. Anyone who steps onto the Judo mat as a beginner at the age of 50 deserves respect Anyone who goes on to earn a black belt in this wonderful, unforgiving art deserves admiration.Mark Law did just that, and from his writing, it s clear what gave him the strength to succeed his passion for Judo shines through from start to finish The Pyjama Game tells the story of Judo, from its founder Jigoro Kano to the redoubtable Kimura the rise of Europeans Judo in the form giant Dutchman Geesink the coming o [...]


    2. This book was timely as I was embarking on my journey from Brown Belt to Black in Judo I found the book familiar, but also foreign I could recognise the aspect of club world, but foreign to the International echelon It made for an interesting and informative read I could recognise collect judo autographs in my own throwing Winston Gordon for Ippon once in 2001 at Budokwai during randori, and recognise the subsequent being thrown from one end of the Dojo to the other I too have grappled with grea [...]


    3. Mark Law s book contains two types of book in one volume, unified by the theme of jud On the one hand, it s a microhistory of the martial art and sport of jud and, no, it s not redundant to say the martial art and the sport because while these aspects overlap they aren t identical On the other hand, the book presents a personal account of Law s experience as a jud ka who began his practice at the ripe age of 50 The two elements of the book are interwoven together, and aren t forced into distinct [...]


    4. This is a pleasant, involving foray into a sport that in tone put me in mind of several that seem to show up each year on cricket That combination of journalistic punch with a lot of self deprecation There are some good highlights of the history of judo here, along with some nice stuff about the feel of the sport art, some conversations with judo greats, and an abiding feel of the obsession for a chosen sport Perhaps there should have been a little for the non judo player to help them get up to [...]


    5. This is a great book written by a real enthusiast of all things judo Everything you always wanted to know beside the actual techniques Where did it come from, who were the big players, the legends, the outlaws How did it become olympic When did the woman start to compete It s everything there plus some really good reflections on training, competition and tradition The only thing I didn t like was his less knowldgable treatment of the striking arts but this is a book about judo Should be on every [...]


    6. Rip roaringly entertaining Law is a fantastic writer with a masterful eloquence The tales of his exploits in the judo world can only be bettered by those of us lucky enough to have actually been on the mat with him I m still nursing a bruised coccyx from the experience But importantly, even for those no avid lovers of the pyjama game, this is just a damn good book.



    7. Law writes well, and his history of judo merges with a tale of movement into the sport As a non participant with minimal knowledge of judo this was entertaining worthy as a beach book.
