A True Judo Story
A TRIBUTE TO MATSUTARO OTANI SENSEI - 1896 - 1977.
By W. Stopps
W `Bill` Stopps Sensei was the first personal assistant to Matsutaro Otani Sensei from 1947.
This true story had never been published until Bill gave me the opportunity to read his memoirs. I enjoyed the story so much, I asked Bill if I could publish it on my website - he agreed.
He tells of a time before one could buy a Judo gi, he actually made one out of sail cloth.
