    I have german very nice book from Maghito Ohgo. It is about Gokyo. I got this book from my father when I was 13 years old. It was very good for me. I watched the japanese explanation of judo at the first.

    Maghito Ohgo remembered to his sensei Shinbashira Shozen Nakayama. There is a photo from Ohgo's book.

    I tried to find more info about Shinbashira Shozen Nakayama. Interesting person.

    Profile of the Founder of Tenri Dojo  Most Reverend Shozen Nakayama, the Second Shinbashira of Tenrikyo  Rev. Shozen Nakayama was born as the first son to the First Shinbashira―title given to the Spiritual Leader of Tenrikyo Church―on April 23, 1905 in Tanbaichi (presently Tenri City) in Nara Prefecture, Japan. After his father's passing away for rebirth, he took over the leadership and became the Second Shinbashira at the age of 11.   In 1925, he entered the Religions History/Religious Studies Department of the Humanities/Liberal Arts Division at prestigious Tokyo University and graduated from the university in 1929.  
    Spearheading missionary work on an international scale, he took many itinerary tours, supervising and providing guidance in many regions of the world. Notable among such tours was his itinerary tour from June through September of 1933 to Hawaii and mainland U.S. During this trip, he participated in the Chicago Conference of World's Religions and gave a speech about the Tenrikyo faith.  
    As the spiritual leader of our teachings and a scholar, he guided others with such a grand vision and passion while dedicating himself for such causes. On the other hand, he was also an active sportsman, promoting Judo, rugby, swimming, and other sports for the health of church members. In particular, he pushed himself to becoming a renowned Judoist and was credited for being a catalyst for promoting Judo on a global scale.   His Accomplishments in Promoting Judo:
    • Founded Tenri Judo and as the Father of Tenri Judo, pushed with all his might in promoting Tenri Judo to its present fame and growth worldwide.   • Established Tenri Judo Junsei Dojo in Tenri.  • Promoted Judo worldwide: was a big influence in adding Judo to the Olympic sports.  • Hosting and providing facilities and support to many famous and world-class Judoists such as Anton Geesink, the Dutch Judoist who captured the Gold Medal in Open Weight Division in the 1964 Tokyo Summer Olympics, promoted the name of Tenri Judo outside Japan.  • Established our Los Angeles Dojo and several Tenri Judo Dojo in other overseas locale such as New York, Hawaii, and Brazil.  
    He was a dedicated promoter of all kinds of sports in general and served as the President of the Sports Federation in Nara Prefecture in Japan and popularized Judo as the Supervisor for Judo Federation in Japan. His activities knew no national boundaries and interacted and nurtured many world-class athletes as a passionate supporter.
