Gichin Funakoshi (1868-1957) is world famous as one of Karate's great masters and founder of the Shotokan style. After training for decades under the foremost masters in Okinawa he was elected president of the Okinawa Association for Spirit of Martial Arts. He was chosen to demonstrate Karate at the First National Athletic Exhibition in Tokyo in 1922, which led to the introduction of the ancient martial art to the rest of Japan and subsequently to the rest of world. The nineteen kata (forms) here presented are the ones selected by the great master and teacher, Gichin Funakoshi, to give comprehensive training in Karate-do. Fully illustrated demonstrations by the translator cover not only every technique of the kata but also the fundamentals and applications. Through his advice on both practical and spiritual aspects of training, the master guides the student from techniques to the way of karate. Karate, whose value for the well-rounded development of strength, coordination and agility is scientifically validated also fosters the development of spiritual qualities: courage, courtesy, integrity, humility and self-control. 'Karate-do Kyohan' is a book that lives up to its title: it is in truth the master text for karate instruction at all levels and in all aspects of technique and character development. 1.
