Four shades of black : The Traditional Path to Building the Complete Fighter

£27.00

Product description

"'The secrets of karate are contained in the kata, ' said the masters of old. What did they mean? For many years, people have struggled to understand where padwork, grappling, ground-fighting and even high kicks fit into traditional karate.While many people understand the purpose of individual kata, this book demonstrates how the various kata work together to create a logical fight progression from stand-up striking to close-quarter grappling and ground-fighting. Four Shades of Black decodes the kata in a radically different way, revealing how the traditional arts set out to develop a complete and rounded fighter. If you think you know karate, think again." (Goodreads).

Good clean copy. Illus. Tight binding. No inscriptions. Light bumping.
