Shotokan Kata up to Black Belt by Fiore Tartaglia (2013-04-25)
Shotokan Kata up to Black Belt by Fiore Tartaglia (2013-04-25)
by Fiore Tartaglia
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars I highly recommend this book to new starters, 25 Feb. 2016
A very well laid out, concise and accurate book showing all the kata up to Black Belt (incl. extra Brown Belt kata's). The moves in the kata are shown by black/white & grey pictures. In between each move in the kata there is a sequence of another three intermediate moves not often found in "so-called" kata books. This helps greatly show the student the transition from one move to the other. I highly recommend this book to new starters.

The layout is therefore quiet similar to the other great book called 25 Shoto-Kan Kata: 075. This book is marginally better (and cheaper) because each kata has supporting text to explain the makeup of the kata and it's all in English.

I can't wait for Tartaglia's next three volumes to be translated and published: Kata for Black Belt & Above, Kata Bunkai up to and Above Black Belt.

As with Gursharan Sahota's kata books, all the Shotokan Canon kata here are housed in two neat volumes with a hard wearing water resistant cover.

The unusual and fortunate combination of skills as a graphic designer and decade-long karate practitioner has allowed the author to write a unique book on kata: The exceptional graphical presentation of karate techniques within provides clear and precise illustration, perfect for answering your questions about traditional karate forms.

This book contains;- Taikyoku shodan, Heian Shodan, Heian Nidan, Heian Sandan, Heian Yondan, Heian Godan, Tekki shodan, Bassai dai, Empi, Jion, Hangetsu & KankŻ dai. Over 1700 graphics in total.

* Illustrated presentations of all techniques from three different perspectives (over 1700 graphics in total!)
* Clear and detailed graphics
* At-a-glance overview of all kata
* Supplementary explanations of difficult sections of kata
* Explanations of Japanese terms through graphics
* Sturdy, easy-to-use and carry.


My First Look at Karate
My First Look at Karate
by William Haggerty
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars "My First Look at Karate" was written purposefully to be ..., 14 Nov. 2014
"My First Look at Karate" was written purposefully to be non-style specific. It was originally aimed at the younger student or interested person but soon became a hit with adults too and is now in distribution worldwide.

It is both educational and interactive with question and answer sections and the opportunity to colour in the humorously illustrated cartoons.

This book reveals a form of self defence and shows how karate can develop the young individual as a person as well as developing a mature martial art.

4.0 out of 5 stars Synopsis, 5 Feb. 2013
Do you find yourself wondering, "Is this rude?" more frequently than you used to? Are you confused by the behavior of others? Do you long for the days when you could find the answers to all etiquette issues in a book?

Sometimes it seems like anything goes, from texting at the table and listening to loud music on a train to swearing at teachers - even rioting and looting.

In this book, leading writers and commentators set out new rules on good manners for the modern world.

5.0 out of 5 stars Book Description, 24 Jan. 2012
"Okinawa No Bushi No Te" authored by Ronald L. Lindsey gives to the readers a glimpse of the past when the "Bushi", the Samurai Warriors, of Okinawa proudly strolled through the streets and castle halls of Okinawa carrying out their ancient duties of protecting the king , royal family and other nobles of Okinawa.

Mr. Lindsey writes of the history and the culture of Okinawa that produced the Okinawan Bushi. He then goes on to inform the readers about the history of various Bushi and explains how their individual karate styles are being practice in karate schools found all over the world today.

He then goes on to describe his experience of training with the Okinawan Karate Masters. In doing so he reveals for the first time many of the ancient combat secrets of the Okinawan Bushi.

The book "Okinawa No Bushi No Te" by Ronald L. Lindsey offers information that will benefit the martial artists regardless of their style. The book is lavishly illustrated with many photographs.
