5.0 out of 5 stars Something to treasure!!!, 31 Oct. 2010
This review is from: The Way of Kata: A Comprehensive Guide for Deciphering Martial Applications (Paperback)
This book is without doubt one of the best books on Karate Bunkai around. Kris Wilder and Lawrence Kane have done a fantastic job in not only getting across information that was for the most part of history kept secret, but they do so in a concise and logical manner. This makes it a pleasure to read. Certainly, when you read it, you get a feel for the 'true' art of karate, not the karate that most people will immediately conjure up images of. Indeed, this book allows you to practise your karate as the holistic art it was and is meant to be. This book will make your kata become a living and breathing thing. I can not praise this book enough.

Now this is not a book that you read, and then proceed to put it back on the shelf once your finished. Readers will find that it will become a constant reference point for the study of Kata and the true value of the book will be realised for years to come. With the bunkai checklist you'll be able to cross-check your applications and can constantly flick back should you need some more information.

It's all in the kata, and with this book, you'll be on the road to the heart of karate.

My thanks to the authors for providing such a fantastic book!
