Dear USJF friends,
I am very pleased to announce that the English version of my book “Origins of Pan-American Judo” is now available for sale. The individual price in Amazon is $27.00 plus S&H.
This book, first in its class, is the result of sixty years of personal experiences, documents, pictures, files, etc. Many countries, names, dates, events, and places, make this book of optimal interest to Judo practitioners. In its 240 pages, the reader will enjoy over 290 rare and unique pictures, documents, and statistical analysis. This represents a treasure of very valuable material, which every serious martial arts enthusiast should have in its library. Its Spanish version has been received with great interest in Spain as well as the rest of the Spanish-speaking world. This English publication should be of equal interest, to judokas from Canada, the U.S.A. and other English speaking nations for the great contribution they had in the formation and developing of the Pan-American Judo, founded in Havana, Cuba in 1951.
It is my wish that this book become an instrument of reference for all serious Judo enthusiasts.
With my warmest regards,
Sensei Luis Guardia
