If I must find something to complain about, it is that some of the photos are to small.
The book does an excellent job of displaying the basic punching and kicking mechanics and then moves into intermediate and advanced tactics and techniques.
So not only the content is valuable from a martial art perspective, but the layout and edition are very good.
Must have for the Kyokushin, or splinter group, practitioner. Offers a glimpse into the style which reinforces the notion of its roots in Kyokushin. Read morePublished 8 months ago by Chirish
