Dynamic Karate Description

'Inside the cover' of Dynamic Karate

As taught by the world's leading karate expert

If you want to be really outstanding at karate, you are just the person for whom this book is intended. If you are determined to master the blindingly fast, powerful, and potentially devastating punches and kicks that make karate the most respected form of self defense (and a tremendously exciting sport as well), you can do it through the hundreds of excellent photographs and descriptions provided here.

Those who have tried one of the older books on karate usually have found to their disappointment that it simply did not give them the complete, detailed instructions and illustrations the fundamentals plus the fine points that they were hoping for. This book fills the gaps left by others.

It is written in a precise, get-to-the-point style by Masa-toshi Nakayama, Chief Instructor of the 100,000-member Japan Karate Association. Here he shares his great experience as a karate competitor and teacher, describing and illustrating in detail all the correct movements involved in the particular block, punch, or kick you want to perfect, as well as instructions on combining blocking techniques with decisive counterattacks. Also included is a glossary of all Japanese karate terms and a guide to their pronuncia-tion. Because of the lightning-like speed of karate tech-niques, normal camera work often fails to record the action accurately. For this reason, many of the photo sequences found in Dynamic Karate were taken using a stroboscope with a flash time of 1/10,000 of a second, enabling you to follow each movement as it is actually performed.

The Japanese-language edition of this book is already a huge success in Japan, where modern karate was devel-oped. Already it has proved its value as the most authoritative, complete book ever prepared for students and instructors alike.
