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.

"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.
