Judo History: What Came Before Jiu-Jitsu?

Judo History: What came before Jiu-Jitsu?

Honestly, I have read and heard a lot about the history of Judo and sometimes I have found that it is a lot of work to sort out the myth from the reality. This video on the other hand, for its length, is one of the most well thought out and balanced, brief history of Judo I have come across.

All videos have a point of view but most videos on the history of Judo are so busy making the point that there is a tendency for an over to overemphasise their point of view to the detriment of the subject matter. To that degree, this video is refreshing in that there seems little interest in preaching to the audience. Instead, there is just plain education.

Even if you think you are fully versed in the history of Judo I think that if nothing else you will find the succinctness of what is being said worth listening to even if it is only to see how it is done. If you don't know much about Judo history this is a good start.
