Shotokan Karate A Precise History …
“A must read for karate researchers and students.”
—Charles Goodin, Hawaii Karate Museum
“…This is not merely a dry organizational history. Numerous stories concerning the more famous karate-ka and extensive quotations illustrate and give vibrant life to the historical narrative.”
—Robert Dohrenwend Ph.D. JAMA
“The second edition is one of the best books ever published on karate. I highly recommend this book for serious karate students and researchers.”
—Katsuhiko Shinzato, 9th Dan, Okinawa Shorin-Ryu, Kishaba Juku; Co-author of the Karate and Kobudo Encyclopedia.
“This book should be included in the library of every serious martial artist, not just Shotokan practitioners, for understanding the whole picture is the best way to gain insight into one’s own style and thereby further personal development.”
—Morio Higaonna, Goju Ryu 10th Dan Hanshi, Living Intangible Cultural Treasure.
