Twentieth Century Travels: Tales of a Canadian Judoka
AbstractIn 1960, Doug Rogers, my father, travelled to Japan in search of an ‘authentic’ training experience in the martial art of judo. In this paper, a shortened version of the first chapter of my Master’s thesis, I am interested in the act and the idea of travel: not only Rogers’ experiences of travelling to Japan, but alsohow his experiences intersect with the evolution of travel practises in the West between the late 18th century and the middle of the 20th century, and the manner in which ‘travel’ has been reviewed and reported in anthropology.
