In Doug Rogers' honor, I'm posting "Judoka" (1965). It's a film by Josef Reeve about Rogers who was a student of Judo great Masahiko Kimura.


Happy Birthday Doug Rogers!

This short documentary tells the story of Doug Rogers, a young Canadian athlete who developed a talent for judo that led him into competition for the world championship at the Tokyo Olympics and subsequent competition at the Pan-American Games. The film shows the intensive judo training Rogers took at a Tokyo college, as well as glimpses of his life in Japan.
