Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The kata in this volume are at the advanced level and may be selected for examination above the grade of shodan.

In Unsu, there are constant transformations, signified by the name meaning "Cloud Hands." All parts of the body are used as weapons, with feints and provocations leading to unique combination techniques and multi-directional kicks.

Sochin is characterized by a certain solemnity and imperturbability. Using a very stable stance, muscular power is built up slowly in many movements, instantaneously in others, leading to a keen sense of timing for continuous attacks.

Nijushiho offers training in the unique back-hand block (haishu uke). It requires integration of varying strengths and speed, and mastery can be seen in a smooth and unbroken flow of movements.

Synopsis:

This volume is one of a series presenting all karate and "kumite" practiced by the Japan Karate Association. Each chapter contains photographs of an instructor of the Association executing a certain technique.

Synopsis:

Napoleon sought to limit the emancipation of French Jewry as decreed in the early years of the Revolution, yet many of the institutions that he created proved to be of enduring value to French Jewry and still exist today. Schwarzfuchs gives an in-depth analysis of all the nuances and

contradictions inherent in this fateful encounter.

About the Author

MASATOSHI NAKAYAMA carries on the tradition of his teacher, Gichin Funakoshl, the Father of Modern Karate. Long professor and director of physical education at Takushoku University, his alma mater (1937), he was chief instructor of the Japan Karate Association from 1955 until his death in 1987. A ninth degree black belt and a familiar face at tournaments, he was among the first to send instructors overseas and to encourage the development of karate along scientific lines.
