Dynamic Karate by M. Nakayama
Most books on karate usually do not provide complete, detailed instructions and illustrations - the fundamentals plus the fine points that readers hope for, this book fills the gaps left by others. The late Master Masatoshi Nakayama, chief instructor of the Japan Karate Association, left this book as a testament. It reveals 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 counter attacks. Because of the lightning speed of karate techniques many of the photo sequences were taken using a stroboscope enabling you to follow each movement as it was performed. Masatoshi Nakayama carried on the tradition of his teacher, Gichin Funakoshi, the Father of modern karate.
