HIstory of Judo DVD 

I watched this today and really enjoyed it.

It has some really excellent footage from a variety of sources and generations. Footage of Anton Geesink coming third in the Worlds. Shots of many of the big names in Judo.

Quite European in focus, French influence is easily perceived.

But for anyone who enjoys the history of our sport is a definate purchase. Coaches, it is a good DVD to have in the collection so you can have something other than straight competition video.

Research - 2006 Commonwealth Judo Tournament 

I am pleased to announce that the initial summary statistical analysis I did of the 2006 Commonwealth Judo Tournament are now available.

Go to where some really great research on Judo is. Here is the direct link to the PDF.

The research is simple descriptive data, I am writing a much more detailed scientific report on the data, but it's been on the backburner for a while...sorry!

Here is a local copy

I am really happy that the research is on, it is probably the best Judo website out there. I have spent HOURS on that site, so it's nice to "pay something back" by providing some content for the site.

Anyway, please let me know if you see any errors, etc.

Comments welcomed!

Instant Linux 

I found which is an interesting amalgamation of scripts and brains to install Linux on a pc running Windows without needing any media whatsoever, just a net connection.

I plan to give it a try, has anyone else seen it or tried it before.

P.s. I think comments are working now...maybe. :-)

Blog probs 

Okay I have sorted out a couple of small niggles with the blog to do with session information, please let me know if you see any problems.

My next step is to adapt the themes so as to make the blog fit the rest of the site layout. That is my next step.
