Higher Judo Groundwork Book
Higher Judo Groundwork Book Photo

by Moshe Feldenkrais
Higher Judo was written at a critical juncture in Feldenkrais’ development, just after writing Body and Mature Behavior, and after 25 years of involvement in the martial arts. The early chapters of Higher Judo are essential reading for every student and practitioner of the Feldenkrais Method. They go far beyond self defense, arguing for judo as an educational practice that furthers maturation of the whole person, and revealing some of the fundamentals of Moshe’s thinking just as he is developing his method.

“It’s how Feldenkrais addresses the deeper benefits of Judo practice that elevates Higher Judo from just a good book to a classic.” - Dennis Leri, from the forward

Higher Judo is Moshe Feldenkrais’s last and most sophisticated book on Judo. Back in print after an absence of decades, this attractive new edition includes forewords by Dennis Leri: Trainer and martial artist, Michel Brousse: Judoka and historian of French Judo, and Moti Navi: researcher on the Feldenkrais Method’s martial roots. These special forewords add historical and philosophical depth to the new edition.

In this book, Moshe Feldenkrais presents judo as the art of using all parts of the body to promote general health, and as part of the “basic culture of the body.” He reveals judo’s potential for creating a sense of rhythm of movement and improving mental and physical coordination. Higher Judo covers specific movements and positions—the astride position, the six o’clock approach, falling techniques—in both the text and the clear line drawings. Even more importantly, it shows how such groundwork can help practitioners develop their mental and physical awareness to their full potential.
