Under the guidance of such celebrated masters as Ed Parker and the immortal Bruce Lee, Joe Hyams vividly recounts his more than 25 years of experience in the martial arts.

An entertaining odyssey by all means, which all readers, not only karate-ka, can enjoy. The work describes a fascinating 'voyage of discovery' through the Okinawan martial arts during the author's younger years. Both informative & factual, the work leads the reader on a journey of initiation from the preliminary stages of being a 'live-in disciple' of Goju-ryu & trainee of Matayoshi Kobudo in post-Reversion Okinawa, as he travels with the reader through the exploration of Uechi-ryu, Shorin-ryu & Okinawan te; also of a vast spectrum of connected Ryukyuan cultural entities. His attention to detail is commendable, as the shared expedition becomes an esoteric odyssey to find the zen spark of enlightenment that evades so many seekers, but which can be found within one's own nature. Mark D Bishop is arguably the foremost authority on historical Okinawa karate & martial arts. He continues to write, travel, research and teach extensively on various aspects of these, including its related anma bodywork & zen.

The history of science in the West can be traced back almost 2500 years, to a time when science, religion, and the arts all fell under a single discipline, the area of study known as Natural Philosophy, or Philosophia Naturalis. The philosophers of this time period, individuals such as Pythagoras, Plato, and Euclid, literally set the stage for much of modern science, developing tools that are still used to this day. Despite the large swaths of time that have managed to pass, instruments such as number and geometry have remained essentially unchanged, as evidenced by the continued publication (and translation) of texts such as Euclid’s Elements. While many of the tools used by modern science can be traced back to the Platonic and Neoplatonic schools of thought, the current scientific world view is more closely aligned with an altogether different school of thinking. Philosophers such as Democritus posited that the objects found within the physical world were actually composed of small, discrete parts — a world view still held by most of the modern world to this day. Few people stop to consider that this perspective, the atomistic view of the world, is in direct contradiction to the principles espoused by Pythagoras and Plato. This book provides a modern interpretation for the Platonic model of the Universe by making use of both dialogue and diagrams — the same techniques employed by Plato and Euclid more than 2000 years ago to explain their ideas.

Written by a White Belt and a Black Belt, this book contains the essence of Karate lore. Beginners will find all the basic concepts they'll need to get going. But it will also help higher ranks. As Master Funakoshi said, Taikyoku is a kata "of the most profound character and one to which, upon mastery of the art of karate, an expert will return to select it as the ultimate training kata." Taikyoku are used to introduce technique, but also the history and philosophy of Martial Arts. The authors share with you precepts of a master, insights of a beginner, and some Japanese and Okinawan lore and language picked up because of a life-long fascination with Things Japanese. You'll learn the meaning behind the Japanese words and kanji used in Karate, and improve your pronunciation along with your punches. You can use the book in conjunction with the Wado Ki Kai website at www.wadokikai.com. You'll actually be able to see the kata performed by Sensei Arce, step through it or stop motion to study any position. Whether a beginner just starting Martial Arts or a Black Belt reviewing the lore and language of Karate, this book has something for you.
