Kashiwazaki Katsuhiko - Poetry in Motion

I know it is an overused cliche, but this has to be the epitome of what is meant by poetry in motion!  Kashiwazaki Katsuhiko, 1981 World Judo Champ, and currently head Judo coach at the International Budo university.

This type of Judo is rarely seen today, as the smoothness and fluidity is often lost.  I found myself mesmerized by how beautifully and effortless he moves.  You can literally SEE the decades of practice and refinement in his technique.

This is the true essence of Budo!
