The author, a world champion in judo competition, demonstrates throws, holds, pins, turnovers, grabs, and entanglements, and discusses the finer points of mat work.
The text block is tight and in fine condition, with clear text and superb photographs by the late Terence Donovan, who attained black belt. Sadly, Terence Donovan, considered to be one of the best photographers of his generation, suffered from depression and committed suicide ten years after that.
The glossy dust jacket has two closed tears along front top and rear top edges, each no more than 3.5 cm, usually less: these do not detract from this rare gem, which is signed by Terence Donovan, dedicated to someone whose name begins with "K", possibly the author, dated 1986.
