Kodokan Judo vs. Sport Judo I had never even heard of such a distinction as I was under the impression that Kano made all the schools the same and sought out to make judo the sport that it is today. At least that was Wikipedia's definition of Judo.. Up until I tried to sign up for classes, I happen to run across a huge debate about how apparently the sport was not the "true creation" of Mr. Kano's and how it was nothing but a bastardization of what he visualized. Can anyone help verify whether this is true or not? Are there really that big of differences between Kodokan Judo and the Olympic sport? and if so-- what's the best way of telling which one is the Kodokan school so that I can hurry up and sign up for it and start training right away today. I live in St. louis, Missouri. Thanks.
