5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping insight into the karate world & more
From the outset this book compells you to continue reading. It is not merely a book on Karate but a book that takes you deep into the dreams and aspirations of a young man growing up in a time when racial tensions ran high.

1.0 out of 5 stars Uninteresting
The topic itself is quite boring, and the author doesn't actually have that much to say, and it is not helped by less than excellent writing...

J Commock "Russet" (Wolverhampton, England) - See all my reviews
From the outset this book compells you to continue reading. It is not merely a book on Karate but a book that takes you deep into the dreams and aspirations of a young man growing up in a time when racial tensions ran high.

I was drawn into and encompassed in the karate world which instilled discipline, respect, the will to survive, and the sheer determination to succeed and be the best of the best. Speaking as a woman with no indepth knowledge into the Martial Arts, this book gives you great insight into this sport and then takes you deeper into the world of the author.

The raw honesty with which Ralph Robb describes his feelings about friends, family and pending fatherhood envoked such powerful thoughts that I found myself re-analysing chapters of my own life. Ralph also highlights how illness can strike, anytime, anywhere and the devasting effect it can have not only those affected but also those who care for them.

This book is not just a book for Martial Arts fans - it is a book for those who aspire to achieve their dreams and be all that they wish to be.

An excellant read. Can't wait for more.

Reader from Wolverhampton.

5.0 out of 5 stars Determine that today you will overcome your self of yesterday, 2 Mar 2007

I read this book in two days - I never read a book in two days! It is much more than a book about the experience and training of a karate fighter although for me this would have been enough. Read it yourself and find out why.

4.0 out of 5 stars A GOOD READ!, 8 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Memoirs of A Karate Fighter (Kindle Edition)
This book gives an interesting insight into the world of competition Karate, whilst giving the non reader a much needed view of what Karate really is all about as a fighting system.
It is a worthwhile read for practitioners and non martial artists alike, giving a blunt look at how the discipline of martial arts training can shape lives and give strength to deal with life's challenges.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well written with a passion for the subject…, 30 May 2013

This review is from: Memoirs of A Karate Fighter (Kindle Edition)
A gritty look at how many lived an urban life in the early British eighties. And how one young man through the discipline and study of Karate was inspired to raise above the cultural differences imposed upon him and his peers.
