'On the Back' of Master Masao Kawasoe

Master Masao Kawasoe: The Foundations of Shotokan Karate Technique is an engaging, highly informative and thought-provoking read that could well prove, despite being a 'work in progress', to be the most important in-depth technical treatise on Shotokan Karate ever written. Master Kawasoe, 8th Dan, a world-renown Shotokan technician of fifty years experience, describes using just one stance, two variations of one type of punch, two types of block and one type of kick, what he believes underpins all Shotokan technique. The book details the bio-mechanical mechanisms of essentially inward actions that pick-up, momentarily store and channel energy, and the outward process of delivery and focusing that energy - all in an estimated one-fifth of a second!

Master Masao Kawasoe: The Foundations of Shotokan Karate Technique will surely, last the test of time, for not only is it a wonderfully innovative work, but because it clearly explains, in a reader friendly manner, the very essence of what makes Master Kawasoe's karate so special.

We can send your item(s) in the following ways:
Courier Tracked - Order before 1pm, we can pack and post the same day to be with you the next working day, this is not a weekend service. It is fully tracked and we will send you the tracking number when we process your order.
Evri - In our experience an extremely slow service, we cannot guarantee it will arrive. It isn't an option on the website for good reason, so if you want this pitiful service and your parcel thrown into a random hedge near your house, if you're lucky, just to save about £2 then simply call us on 0117 942 5832 and we can process your order over the phone. 
Fedex Worldwide - For anywhere outside the UK, we can post the same day but delivery times are dependent on the destination. Approximate delivery times are as follows: 
  • Europe: 2-3 working days
