Book Description

Aug. 15 1991
KARATE is not only a means of self-defense; it is also a sport and a philosophy. The Karate Dojo: Traditions and Tales of a Martial Art examines each of these aspects-through the colorful legends, tales, and traditions that are associated with the art-and explains why educators and parents are becoming increasingly interested in karate. This book shows how karate training can change the lives of those who practice it, by giving them health, self-con?dence, both physical and mental discipline, as well as calm maturity.

This is not my style of karate but traditions are always similar. Good book to add to a martial arts collection.

Format:Paperback
I borrowed this book from my Sensei and loved it so much that I had to buy it for myself! The stories in the second section are wonderful, and the ideas in the first half really make you examine yourself and your training.
A must read for all karate students, even if all you get out of it is that the stories are cute.
