A groundbreaking and exhaustive look into the complex development and unique character of Okinawan karate by a qualified exponent and researcher. The author, with over 42 years of experience in karate, presents the art in a manner that will allow all practitioners, beginner, and expert alike, to benefit from his extensive experience and research. Over 350 color photos and numerous text boxes accompany clear, detailed explanations, making this book an indispensable resource in the field of martial arts. For example, there are chapters focusing on training principles, body mechanics, Chinese boxing and the emergence of Okinawan karate, the real value of kata, the development of fighting skill, the philosophy of karate, weaponry, human aggression, and White Crane kata. This is perhaps the most illuminating karate book ever written. It separates the art from the hype, infusing meaning back into the art and into our practice. In the process, it explains the current status of karate and how we may change its direction for ourselves. Clearly, this is a book written for the thinking practitioner and a challenge to those that sully karate's reputation. Includes an extensive glossary, index, and references.
