ForewordThe book version of KYOKUSHIN POWER KARATE contains a total of 320 pages with 3800 photographs illustrating every technique and Kata from beginner up to 3rd Dan plus their application in self-defence.
The book was designed primarily as a photographic aid to those studying Kyokushin Karate. It can also be a valuable asset to those studying other styles as well.
There always has been and always will be different variations in the way techniques are performed and taught from country to country and from teacher to teacher, therefore it was not my intention to show how the techniques and Kata must be performed, it is more a guide to show how the techniques and Kata may be performed.
Used correctly the information contained in the books will be of help to anyone studying Karate to reach a higher and more proficient level. That is why I have decided to make the books available for purchase in my webshop www.tsg-publications.com, thereby making the information available to more people around the world.
Excerpts from the books can be viewed by using the menu to the left.
