Karate, which has come to be regarded by the public as nothing more than a spectacular, high-kicking style of fighting-with homicide as the objective-has meaning far beyond this superficial interpretation. As a method of self-defense, karate has few equals, yet despite its great popularity, the essence of the art has been poorly grasped by many of its practitioners. Ancient in origin, the martial arts of the East have always had the development of man's spiritual, as well as physical, nature at their core. Karate-do, the "Way of Karate," is no different from the other martial arts in this respect. Animals are not muscle-bound; why should a man be? Pliancy and flexibility are natural characteristics of the human body; rigidity is the mark of death. Beginning with the warming-up exercises-neglected in earlier karate books-and continuing with the fundamental stances and techniques, the student can learn to preserve that pliancy and flexibility and at the same time develop his natural strength, agility and coordination. From the method presented in this book, the beginner can understand what it means to be calm of spirit but quick of mind. While actualizing the basic skills that lead to the confidence necessary to face any adversary, he will also develop the discipline that checks the misuse of such skills. More advanced students, also, will find much of value here, for the author's practice of karate spans more than four decades, and he assesses both the changes in ways of training and in the way of thinking-as well as the significance of these changes. He shows the path leading to strengthening of body and mind and, thus, to harmony of mind and body.

Karate-Do evolved as a martial art in Okinawa, where it was nurtured by centuries of Okinawan culture and innovation. What inspired the ancient masters to develop these martial techniques and practices was the human instinct for self-preservation, not a desire for entertainment or sporting competition. Traditional karate-do should be practiced with this in mind. Here you will find a complete personal training handbook to supplement training in any karate-do system or other martial art style. The authors have systematically organized their experiences and research into easily digestible segments and have included numerous photographs throughout the text. This book will inspire you to train even more diligently, and the experiences and research shared here will be useful on the journey of any traditional martial artist.

Nearly 100 articles by scholars discuss specific martial arts, countries, and concepts such as religion and spiritual development common to martial arts traditions of the world.

Tsuku Kihon refers to powerful and dynamic techniques used and taught by some Shotokan karate instructors. the idea behind Tsuku Kihon is that power and closing distance are greatly enhanced by propelling the body forward using basic karate principles. A group of approximately 25 Tsuku Kihon combinations was developed by several Shotokan instructors in the middle of the 20th century. Sensei Luis Bernardo Mercado decided to expand and categorize Tsuku Kihon in order to increase its applications and to create a formal structure for teaching them. Many months of trial and error by the author of this book resulted in an additional 42 combinations and three methods by which Tsuku Kihon can be systematically taught to intermediate and advanced karate students. This book is a result of that effort. This 2nd Edition also has beautiful original artwork by Nobu Kaji and Egil Thomson.
