A&M Judo Club Provides
Members Many Conveniences
By JAMES A. BASINGER
It’s nice to know that you
don’t have to pick a fight to prove
you can capably handle yourself.
The Judo Club, formed four
years ago and growing rapidly,
strives to enable its members not
only to enjoy the sport but in
case of emergency, finding them
selves quite capable of defending
Judo, often described as the art
of yielding to an opponent’s
greater strength to defeat him, is
based on jiu-jitsu, an ancient Jap
anese form of self-defense.
In the late 19th century, Dr.
Jigoro Kano of Tokyo modified
the lethal forms of jiu-jitsu into
his own system which he called
judo, which literally means “the
gentle way.” With the establish
ment of Kanos’ school, the Kodo-
kan, or the ruling body of Kodo-
can Judo spread throughout the
world including to Texas A&M.
THIS YEAR’S Judo Club is
sponsored by Lt. Col. Thomas F.
Hines and has as its president
Donald Monroe. Lewis Herring
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. UP)—A
quarter-century at the Indianap
olis 500-mile auto race but he’s
never seen a wheel turn.
The Rev. Leo Lindaman, priest
at St. Christopher’s Catholic
Church in the town of Speedway,
has stationed himself at the
Indianapolis Motor Speedway
hospital for every Memorial Day
race since 1937.
“I never made myself a
nuisance,” said the 69-year-old
Father Lindaman. “I just try to
stay nearby. If they need me,
they’ll find me.”
He was referring to drivers,
car owners, mechanics, their
wives and children.
Father Lindaman, who built
the church named for the patron
saint of travel, wasn’t an avid
race fan before moving to the
parish from Martin County, Ind.
“I used to enjoy listening to
the races on the radio, but I
wasn’t a particular fan,” he said.
“However, my first year here I
was at the track every day dur
ing the month of May.”
Despite the grim task of ad
ministering last rites to drivers,
the stately white-haired priest
has high praise for the race and
its car safety innovations—seat
belts, brakes, tires—which are
tested at the track and trans
ferred to the highway.
“There haven’t been that many
drivers killed,” said Father Lind
aman. “I’ve been at race after
race without an injury. If driv
ers observe the rules, there’s
rarely an accident. The same
thing holds true on the highway.”
Father Lindaman has blessed
cars, drivers, owners and me
chanics during practice and
qualifications for many years.
He has presented St. Christo
pher’s medals. He has even
married a few of the racing
has turned most of the
activities over to his
the Rev. Paul Richart.

Herring, who holds a green
belt, explained that judo is a sci
entific sport in which every ac
tion has a meaning. It is an art
which lets a man of little strength
defeat a man of greater strength
through skill and technique.
“Judo and jiu-jitsu are very dif
ferent,” Herring said. Jiu-jitsu
and judo are confused many times
and are thought of as the same
thing. Herring stressed that
where jiu-jitsu employs methods
of reckless aggression, judo is
relatively free from danger and
is engaged in for sport and recre
The different colored belts rep
resent the varying amount of pro
ficiency which an individual has
attained. The black belt marks
the highest achievement in the
sport. There are three different
classes of the brown belts. The
green belt is the next in line of
descending proficiency and the
white belt is worn by the novice.
THE JUDO Club offers to its
members a chance of obtaining
any kind of belt or grade includ
ing a black belt. The club fol
lows the methods and rules as
prescribed in Kodocan Judo. This
kind of Judo is the oldest and
most popular form.
“Kodocan Judo is the largest
and most recognized official
school of Judo,” Herring noted.
He added that all holders of black
belts in Kodocan Judo are offi
cially recognized and registered
with the Kodocan.
In striving to improve the Ju
do Club, Herring said that it is
now trying for official recognition
by the Kodocan.
“We require exactly what is
required in Japan,” Herring said.
In doing this Herring added that
the possibilities of being recog
nized by the Kodocan is greatly
The Judo Club is fortunate to
have the assistance of two black
belt holders. Dr. William Blan
ton of the Department of Ocean
ography and Chan Ho Han, a
native of Korea who is attending
BLANTON teaches classes on
Monday’s, Wednesday, and Fri
days from 5 to 6:30 p.m. Han
also occasionally attends to give
help to those members requesting
On Wednesdays, those desiring
to attempt to gain a higher belt
are tested by the higher ranking
In attempting to earn a higher
belt, the individual being tested
must execute a prescribed number
of intricate hold-downs and
throws. He must also show his
overall mastery of the sport by
performing in a match against
an opponent of the grade belt he
is trying to earn.
The better members of the club
also compete in various contests.
Last semester, the contest team
made a trip to the Texas State
The only drawback to further
expansion of the club is the limi
tation of funds.
“DUES are only $2 a semes
ter,” Herring said. He added
that the club is interested in tak
ing on as many new members as
possible at the beginning of each
The costume worn by the mem
bers of the club is called the Judo-
gi. It is about the only major
expense incurred by those enter
ing the club.
“We provide a service to all
members by ordering the gi’s and
getting a discount for them,”
Herring explained. The approxi
mate cost of the gi is about $10.
AS FOR the future, Herring
expressed an air of optimism by
pointing to the increased organiz
ation of the club.
“We have a great potential for
next year,” Herring emphasized.
“We have good teachers and a
