Founder of Kin Ryu against

1st Non-Japanese World Champion

 

 

 

 

Mick Leigh (Kin Ryu founder, on right) competes against Anton Geesink in 1968 at the Royal Albert Hall.

Anton was a Dutch 10th dan judoka. He was the first non-Japanese judoka to win gold at the World Judo Championship, a feat he accomplished in 1961 and 1965. He was also an Olympic Champion, having won gold at the 1964 Summer Olympics in Japan (the year Mick was reserve), and won a record 21 European Judo Championships during his career.
