Some good information, however their history of Karate is set in an alter universe. Seriously you would have me believe that Moses, Yes I said it Biblical Moses Went to Japan three times and married on one for the trips and ultimately died and is buried in Japan... Deuteronomy 34:5-6 and Moses the servant of the Lord died there in Moab, as the Lord has said. He buried him in Moab, in the valley opposite Beth Peor, but to this day no one knows where his grave is. Ok i get it Know one knows where his grave is. Last time checked a map Moab is near the Dead Sea also near Jericho, and neither one of those places are in Japan last time I checked. I should know I live in Japan.....

Yes, the "historical" info in this text is quite far-fetched, BUT the theoretical, philosophical and technical sections (basically MOST of the book, aside from a small section) are some of the absolute best I've ever seen in any book on Karate-Do. I am a Shodan in Shotokan and have found this book to have been VERY useful and applicable to my own practice in every way. HIGHLY reccomended ("historical" info aside).
