About the Author

Andreas Quast is the author of "Karate 1.0" (2013), "A Stroll Along Ryukyu Martial Arts History" (2015), and "King Wu Once Buckled on his Armor" (2016), among others. Unpretentious and industrious, he has certificates as a skilled mechanic (ICC), state-certified engineer in mechanical engineering (technical college), health and safety officer (technical college), and technical writer (tekom), with practical experience as a florist, heavy duty welder, paraglider, bartender, SAP coordinator, antiquarian bookseller, guitar player, author and publisher, football player etc.pp. Living in Düsseldorf, Germany, he's been digging through archives around the globe in search for literary truffles of Okinawa Karate and Kobudo, the findings of which he publishes for an international audience in a unique way on his popular blog ryukyu-bugei.com. His activities in martial arts, which included about 2 years in Japan and Okinawa, resulted in a number of prestiguous awards for his ongoing research (International Ryukyu Karate Research Society, Ryukyu no Kaze Society), a drawer of certificates (Jiu-jitsu, Karate, Ryukyu Kobudo, Mugai-ryu Iaido, Hachiman-ryu Battojutsu), and a network of likeminded friends and colleagues around the globe. After more than 15 years of study into the subject, he also contributed an analysis featured in the new edition of "Bubishi: The Classic Manual of Combat", written by world-famous practitioner and researcher Patrick McCarthy, released June 2016. Turning 50 years of age in 2016, Quast claims "It's about halftime!"In 2011 he performed Kobudo at the German Okinawan Festival held in Okinawa, which was well received by the German ambassador to Japan as well as the German Honorary Consul to Okinawa. His unquenchable passion for various martial arts of Ryukyuan provenance results in regular print and online publications frequently reaching an international audience. With two decades of practical experience, extensive travel, and published research he still considers himself being merely on the verge of understanding Ryukyu martial arts. The author is a certified engineer, technical writer, and antiquarian bookseller living in Düsseldorf, Germany, where he continues his training and research.
