3.0 out of 5 stars Good but definitely need to know basics first, 23 Feb. 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Shotokan Karate Handbook: Advanced (Advanced Edition) (Paperback)
I bought one of Sahota's first books 'Beginner to Black Belt' and found it very useful and helpful to accompany my karate classes. The Advanced book is much the same. However, as the title suggests, this book is more for those who have been practicing karate and are familiar with the Japanese Language he uses to describe blocks and striking techniques. As the first, he has included photos for individual techniques in kata and kumite, however, it is sometimes a little difficult to judge correct direction of movement. However, it is appreciated that this is quite difficult to describe. Some of the instructions are not as descriptive as they could be, but you can get a good overview of how the techiques should be carried out and the proper stances to follow.
