'On the Back' of Masao Kawasoe, 8th Dan

Masao Kawasoe, 8th Dan, tells the fascinating story of the first thirty years of the making of a world-class karate master.

Master Kawasoe began training in Shotokan under master Katsunori Tsuyama, in 1960, before successfully attaining a JAK Black Belt from Minoru Miyata, in 1963. Awarded a full karate scholarship to Takushoku University., upon completion of this degree, Master Kawasoe was then invited to attend the prestigious JKA Instructors' Course for a further two years, under the tutelage of Masters Nakayama, Shoji and Kanazawa. Master Kawasoe then accepted a post of JKA instructor to Taiwan in Madagascar. He became based in Greta Britain in 1974, and travels the globe extensively today, teaching.

Masao Kawasoe, 8th Dan, is a wonderful read by the foremost writer on Shotokan in the world, and describes one man's dedicated journey along the Shotokan Path.
