KICKSTARTER CAMPAIGN LAUNCHED 23rd August 2015

Finding a publisher willing to support what is considered a minority sport took nearly two years. After searching everywhere, it was Bluecoat Press of Liverpool, England, that was willing to take the risk. However, the book market is extremely competitive.  Due to the dominance of Amazon, there remains very few book shops on the high street. The national bookshop chains would not be willing to stock a book about Judo.  So to cover the huge costs of production and printing the publisher needed me to launch this Kickstarter campaign. The night before it went live, I have doubts and thought that no one would be interested in this story and photographs. How wrong I was.....
