David Matsumoto &
On the milestone
of its 50th anniversary, we have been commissioned by the United States

Judo Federation entitled "Judo: A Sport and A Way of Life". Tentatively,
the book will be an 8.5" x 11" hardcover and will be printed in color.
There will also be a Deluxe Edition, which will be boxed with a more

With the score
standing at 6 wins to Asia and 5 wins to Europe Kosei Inoue steps
onto the mat. An ippon from Inoue will mean almost certain victory
for Asia and a place in the final of the Millenium Cup for his continent.
But his opponent is Antal Kovacs of Hungary, the 1992 Olympic champion,
and he has beaten Inoue before, two years ago, here, in the Hungarian
Cup. Since then Inoue has won everything: the World Championships,
the Tournoi de Paris and the Olympic Games. He is an ippon machine,
apparently unbeatable, and Judos greatest star...
