The autumn leaves are falling like rain. Although my neighbors are all barbarians and you, you are a thousand miles away, there are always two cups at my table.

T’ang Dynasty poem

Ten thousand flowers in spring, the moon in autumn, a cool breeze in summer, snow in winter. If your mind isn't clouded by unnecessary things, this is the best season of your life.

The Judo of Doug Rogers

In 1960, a 19 year old Canadian named Doug Rogers traveled to Japan to study Judo. He caught the attention of Masahiko Kimura, one of the greatest post war judoka and became his student.

Rogers won a silver medal in Judo for Canada in the 1964 Tokyo Olympics.

Below is a short (~18 min) documentary about Rogers and his training in Japan.
