Working on Hiraoka e-book

Hiroaki Hiraoka

The first e-book I'm working on is the judo of Hiraoka, whom I often refer to as the best Japanese player never to have won a world or Olympic title (although he came close to doing so several times with two World silver medals and an Olympic silver medal).

His technical wizardry is dazzling. In this e-book, I plan to analyze the various techniques he employs in competition. Techniques that will be featured are

 i) Morote-Seoi-Nage
ii) Cross Grip Seoi-Nage
iii) Ippon-Seoi-Nage
iv) Reverse Seoi-Nage
v) Sode-Tsuri-Komi-Goshi
vi) Kouchi-Makikomi
vii) Tomoe-Nage

In addition, I will be looking at the various innovative combination techniques that he uses to catch his opponents off guard. I might include some miscellaneous bonus materials in the form of one-off techniques that he doesn't use often.

I've looked at different e-book platforms and probably Amazon's Kindle is the best option. Still experimenting on how best to do this.
