    I have this book called
    Skillful Judo by Brian Caffary
    In it he writes----

    It's interesting to note that
    1 old Japanese Martial Art
    School, The Jikishin-ryu ,

    had been using the name
    Judo in connection in connection

    with their paticularstyle of combat
    for some 200 years before Kano
    appeared on the scene

    It was to save any confusion with Jikishin-ryu
    Judo that Kano Eventually gave his discipline
    the name of Kodokan Judo.

    Does anyone know anything about this???
