1909 letter from Jigoro Kano to Baron Pierre de Coubertin 


I wanted to post this online as soon as I could.
Below is a electronic copy of a letter from Judo founder Jigoro Kano to IOC president Pierre de Coubertin. This is an important piece of Judo history so please do read it. It is HUGE, almost 4mb so be patient.

** Please click on the letter to see it full size **



Enjoy.

Many thanks to Densign White for showing this letter to me.

Hi,
if you click on the letter you will see the fullsize version of the letter.

I'll see about changing the blog font size too.

I'm straining to read the letter, care to summarize?

Additionally, the text in this comments window is extremely small. Please consider changing the default font size to 10. Its a pain to read my own typing. Just some feedback for your blog's user experience.

Thanks for posting the letter, I will continue to try and read it throughout the day :)
