    Which good, comprehensive Judo or Wrestling book will you all recommend? Which covers from the Uchikomi, throwing to Ukemi? There have been a number of threads about bjj books, but few, if any, on Judo and/or Wrestling

    Part of the only one holistic system of systems
    Kodokan Judo by Jigoro Kano, A to Z Of Judo by Syd Hoare, Best Judo by Isao Inokuma and Nobuyuki Sato, Ju No Kata: A Kodokan Judo Textbook by Keiko Fukuda, Winning Wrestling Moves by Mark Mysnyk, Wrestling for Beginners by Tom Jarman and Reid Hanley. They should keep you busy for a while.

    I agree, Bubble Boy. Every Judoka should own at least a half dozen of the masteclass series if they're serious about their Judo. Best Judo is also a good book.

    My suggestions would be, Vital Judo- Throwing Tchniques, Dynamic Judo Throwing or Judo In Action. The bad thing they are all out of print in English. You can find Judo in Action in Japanese at Budovideos.
