Editorial Reviews


"This book has been sorely needed for generations! ...every serious karateka absolutely must own." -- Philip Starr, Inside Kung Fu Hall of Fame Member, founder of Yiliquan

"If you want to develop real strength, speed, endurance, and power... buy this book. It should be required reading..." -- Lawrence A. Kane, martial artist, author of Surviving Armed Assaults, co-author of The Little Black Book of Violence and Scaling Force

"...dispels the myths... straightforward and accessible ... put the lessons of Sanchin to the test... a truly great piece of work..." -- Iain Abernethy, 6th Dan, World Combat Association Chief International Coach, author of Mental Strength, Throws for Strikers, and Karate's Grappling Methods --This text refers to the paperback edition.

From the Back Cover

When Karate or "Ti" was first developed in Okinawa it was about using technique and extraordinary power to end a fight instantly. These old ways of generating remarkable power are still accessible, but they are purposefully hidden in Sanchin Kata for the truly dedicated to find.

This book takes the practitioner to new depths of practice by breaking down the form piece-by-piece, body part by body part, so that the very foundation of the kata is revealed.

Test It. Every chapter, concept, and application is accompanied by a Test It section, designed for you to explore and verify the kata for yourself. Sanchin Kata really comes alive, when you can feel the thrill of having those hidden teachings speak to you through your body across the ages. No other document, or video, available today provides such depth and exploration of Sanchin Kata. Simply put, once you read this book and test what you have learned, your Karate will never be the same.

Chapters include: * Movement Not Seen * The Crescent Step * The Spine* Bones, Sinew, and Muscle * The Energetic Structure * The Mechanical Structure* Iron Shirt * Rooting * The Mind * Ten-Minute Sanchin * The 5:7 Ratio * The Implements for Sanchin Kata Training * The Entire Traditional Kata in step-by-step movement. --This text refers to the paperback edition.
