'Inside the Cover' of Know Karate-Do

In the past fifteen years there has been an extraordinary growth of interest in Karate.
A real understanding of the nature of the sport has, however, been hampered by press sensationalism and the multiplicity of styles and associa-tions, each of which tends to stress its own significance and play down that of its rivals. Here, for the first time, the different styles arecompared objectively, and advice given to potential Karateka as to how to join a club most suited to the individual's requirements.

The author has trained in the East and has been both Chairman and Secretary of the British Karate Control Commission as well as Treasurer to the European Karate Union. He is thus well qualified to write this book which was prepared in consultation with the BKCC's six senior Technical Advisors, both Japanese and British.

Between them these instructors helped raise the standard of British Karate and inter-style co-operation to the highest levels in the world.
A concise description of the basic techniques including stance, movement, breathing, punching, striking, kicking and blocking is given with pictorial illustrations and diagrams, along with sections on Kata, body conditioning and wood breaking. A clear distinction is drawn between the competitive and self defence aspects of Karate and an indication given as to the different competitive rules used by the individual associations.

A senior surgeon, acting as doctor to the British team, has also contributed an unique appendix on the prevention and treatment of Karate injuries.
The book contains the fullest account yet published of the history of Karate and of the influence of Samurai attitudes and Zen Buddhism.
