Changing trends throughout the judo world, with the movement of strenghths predominately shifting away from Japan towards China, Korea and many of the former satelite states of the old Soviet Union, such places as Georgia the Ukrane and many others. The book is not meant to be crytical, however it questions Britains past performances at the Olympic Games, the development programme in place with issues, who should take the glory or blame for results. On a possitive note the book looks at all the hard work the governing bodies have done to advance judo to where it is today. As in the name, Young Gladiators suggests fighters, the book is intended for the young aspireing contest players who have taken this path in the hope one day they will be the champion. The technical side of the book looks in depth at the skills of both Tachi Waza and Ne Waza, and although contest orientated it should be easily understood by all judoka at any level.
