• Count Koma


8.5×11 Prismacolor on paper

Original $200

Mitsuyo Maeda, aka. “Counde Koma” (“Count Combat”), was one of Jigoro Kano’s Judo students who had incorporated a strong ground game into his Judo after witnessing the effectiveness of Fusen Ryu Jujitsu in competition against the Kodokan. Maeda was one of the individuals Kano chose to spread Judo abroad throughout the Americas. While living in Brazil, Maeda ended up teaching his unique form of Judo/Jujitsu to Carlos Gracie and his brothers. The Gracies, particularly the youngest, Helio, adapted this martial art to fit smaller opponents and emphasize controlling positions on the ground. The rest is history…
