Format: Paperback
Excellent book for beginners. Beautifully illustrated by the way!... Really good explanations... If you want to buy only 2 books about karate-do, here's my recommendation :

1- "25 Shoto-kan Katas"
2- "Karate : A Step-by-Step Guide to Shotokan Karate"

3 of 32 people found the following review helpful By A Customer on May 15, 2002
Format: Paperback
This book seems to be the same story you hear from every American that has ever studied any Okinawan martial arts system. Its part "how to" (which in my opinion is the worst type of martial arts book), part history (not much more than you could find in any encyclopedia), and part "my story". Who cares? Who are you Kevin Healy? If you are writing about Okinawan Karate and your name isn't Chojun, Funakoshi, Chotoku, Sakugawa, Odo, Nakamura, or Maehara we don't care what you have to say.
