kawaishi shihan, was in European jujitsu/judo history, one of the great teachers, and did what very few, had done sucessfully before him. [japanese judoka], and that was to explain judo from a personal perspective, as someone from his native japan, who was willing to impart knowledge to westerners, otherwise unavailable to them, and one of those was prof strauss, who embraced much of the Kawaishi judo system [modified], into his own.
