Excellent. Allows one to practice techniques/Kata at Home,
This review is from: The Beginner's Guide to Shotokan Karate (Paperback)
As a mature begginer to Shotokan Karate, along with my 10yr old son, I found the book is invaluable in showing the techniques and Kata one requires to advance in this discipline. Eveything is clearly photographed and easy to follow. As a complete beginner it is sometimes difficult to remember the Japanese Terms used in Karate and this book should be standard essential reading for all beginners and parents of young exponents of this art. I found that it helps to reinforce everything I had been taught in the two, two hour period of instruction I had each week and have shown and recommended the book to other members of my club, who are equally impressed with the content. A Must Buy!
