Judo movies

Judo movies. Lets list them here.

1) Throwdown

IIRC it's a Hong Kong movie.


blood on the sun

Nice! I knew there was some random movie with James Cagney that featured some Judo

Sanshiro Sugata and its Sequel from the 1940's. Both by Akira Kurosawa and feature Judo vs Karate and boxing etc.

classic Japanese movies:

'Sanshiro Sugata' filmed during WWII (1943) it was the directorial debut of Akira Kurosawa, who also wrote the screenplay. a thinly-veiled telling of the story of Shiro Saigo, one of the Kodokan's stars during the school's early challenge match days

'Judo Saga' (1965) a remake of the above movie, this 1 again directed by Kurosawa, but now featuring Toshiro Mifune as the 'Jigoro Kano' figure

both are excellent movies, but be warned, they are much heavier in dialog than 'action'

those older movies sound pretty interesting. thanks for the heads up--


little googling found me this:


take it for what you will, apparently it was pretty popular.
