Translations of the Yawara! manga are in very short supply.

The late-great Mangajin magazine translated manga volume 21, chapters 6 & 7 in issues 26 & 27 respectively, of their magazine.

Mangajin also occasionally translated frames of the Yawara! manga to teach various points about the Japanese language.
