Fighting BookKARATE FIGHTING TECHNIQUES
BY H. KANAZAWA, KANCHO
translated by Richard Berger
This book is Kanazawa's first--and the very first complete guide to kumite, or sparring. The karate training process comprises four areas: basics, kumite, kata (forms; prearranged movements and techniques), and competition. Kumite--"the art of grappling with opponents," as it might be called--is the key to success in karate tournaments. Karate Fighting Techniques teaches all the kumite techniques. With almost 500 photos of the author and some rare photos of the late Gichin Funakoshi and his famous disciple Masatoshi Nakayama (author of the popular Best Karate series), Karate Fighting Techniques is an indispensable resource for all karate practitioners. —Kodansha Publications
