Defending Against Attack The Shotokan Way
Books, karate, actikarate
If you are looking for a good book that teaches Basics, Sparring and
Kata for the beginner up to including Purple white belt then this is
the book. But what makes it different is that the author shares ideas
on the attack cycle with the reader.
Frank commonly explains bunkai (applications) to every techniques
he shows for real life practical application! I know him and he has
personally completed over 800 workshops and this experience is obvious
in reading the book!
Showing all the major kicks in the system with applications, punches blocks and strikes.
A good basic book teaching Shotokan Karate, the attack cycle, and
japanese terminology throughout the book, introducing the Japanese
culture to the public in a fun and informative manner. It is very
personal and he obvoiusly loves talking and doing what he is doing!
