According to, Kodokan means "House of Ancient Ways". Thought maybe that could be worked into the article. --Pereza 03:45, 4 September 2006 (UTC)

The ko in that website's Kodokan is a different kanji character than the ko in the Kodokan from this article; they're pronounced the same way but have different meanings. The Kodokan school mentioned at that website is a karate school that has no connection to judo. It's a bit confusing because the two names are written differently in Japanese, but when transliterated into English characters they look the same. Fumblebruschi (talk) 19:23, 14 April 2008 (UTC)

What is Kodokan Judo?[edit]

This article is an excellent description of the physical Kodokan building in Tokyo where much research and training is done, but I keep coming across references to Kodokan judo, or "judo based on Kodokan." In WP, a search for Kodokan judo redirects me to the general page on Judo, with no reference to what is meant by the phrase. Is there a set of rules that is endorsed by the Kodokan and another that is endorsed by the IJF? Does the Kodokan have some kind of special relationship to the IJF? Does the Kodokan focus on training judo as a way of life rather than as a competitive sport? Is there an unwritten history of animosity between the IJF & Kodokan? I hope I'm not coming across as a trouble-maker. I'm at a beginner level - considering getting back into judo after maybe 15 years away. I'm looking for the right club or dojo, and I want to know what it means when a club or dojo advertises that they teach Kodokan judo. Any thoughts from you experts?
