Karate Technique & Spirit

Photographs by: Tom Grill
The true essence of karate-do is integrated training of the body, mind, and spirit to fully achieve human potential. Karate: Technique and Spirit describes in detail all the steps necessary to attain this goal. It is a book of technique, a guideline for training, and a patient exposition of moral philosophy. Kaicha (grand master) Nakamura takes us from the basics—warmups, punches, blocks, and kicks—to the advanced practice of traditional weapons and kumite (sparring), all the while grounding the physical expression of karate-do in its rich history and philosophy. With over 700 photos, Karate: Technique and Spirit vividly conveys the essense of karate-do and how it can bring deeper meaning to our daily lives.
