• The Pyjama Game by Mark Law

    Just finished reading this book today and I must say its one of the best martial arts books I’ve read. The book covers the history of judo, its competitors and stories of training and competing. The comparisons to BJJ training are obvious and it even gets a mention in the book, as basically just modified Kodakan Judo! Not sure if I agree with the author entirely in this respect, but as a practicing judoka some bias is to be expected. Very well written, Mark Law does a great job of explaining the combat arts to both new readers as well as experienced practitioners. I came away knowing more about something I already thought I knew a thing or two about. Great read.
