The Judo Of Seiki Kan is a brief history of Spokane's first judo school, as well as a basic judo training manual. Seiki Kan Dojo first opened her doors in 1938,but eventually closed them in 2001. During this time period there have been hundreds, if not thousands of people who have been affiliated with Seiki Kan Dojo in one capacity or another. Seiki Kan even had the bragging rights to have hosted some of the biggest names in judo such as Keiko Fukuda,and Toshiro Daigo - both 10th degree black belts, and both legends in the judo world.In addition, Seiki Kan even hosted Paul Maruyama, who was also a celebrity in judo as he was one of the original four judokas to represent the USA in the 1964 Olympics. This book also teaches the basics of judo from the beginning student to the advanced student. In addition this book demonstrates each throw with a simple and easy to follow explanation. With each throw there are three photographs, which easily demonstrate how the throw is performed.

About The Author
Author's Personal Biography
Seiki Kan Dojo originally opened in 1938, but a few years afterwards it was forced to close down due to the war. It wasn’t until 1960 that Seiki Kan Dojo eventually reopened again. At the age of eight, Victor (Vito) Caputo was one of the first new students who attended Seiki Kan Dojo. A year later in 1961, due to unforeseen circumstances Mr. Caputo was forced to leave Seiki Kan, but later rejoined in 1965 when Keigi Horiuchi was the head instructor. In 1969 Keigi Horiuchi left Spokane to go to California, at which time Richard Yamamoto took over as Seiki Kan’s head judo instructor. In 1976 Mr.Caputo left judo for personal reasons, but in 1985 regained his interest in judo while attending the Spokane Police Academy. In addition to judo, in 1995 he started the Korean martial art of Tang Soo Do, under master instructor Barry
January. Later he joined Sensei Robey Reed’s dojo “Seihoku Budokai,” and took both Judo and Shotokan Karate. Then in 2006 he opened his own
dojo, “New Heaven Judo Club,” under the auspices of head instructors Robey Reed and Darren Barnes. Mr.Caputo holds Black Belts in both Kodokan Judo and Korean Tang Soo Do. In February 2011 Mr. Caputo changed the name of his dojo to Bushidokan Judo Academy.
