This book is the authoritative manual for the Okinawan Matsubayashi Style of Karate, written by the late Shoshin Nagamine, a highly respected historian and master and the originator of this style. He describes his own history and experiences, as well as those of his 3 main teachers, Chotoku Kyan, Choki Motobu and Ankichi Arakaki. There is also some explanation of the philosophy and execution of the basics and katas and the main part of the book provides step-by-step pictures of all 18 katas practiced in this style. The f6th chapter touches on kumite as practiced in the style, while the last chapter discusses some of the weapons used by Matsubayashi practitioners.
The first english-language edition of the book was published in 1976. It has been reprinted bout 20 times in the meantime, both in hard and soft-cover editions and is the standard reference used by Matsubayashi Schools throughout the world.

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This Kit came with software on a minidisc, as well as a small, but complete, manual describing the various modules and suggestions for their use in the form of 31 lessons. All modules were supplied in individual bags and they were all packaged together in a compact plastic box. I have not had a chance to compare prices to see if it would be cheaper to get the individual modules. However, the convenience of getting all of them in a single package and not having to order them individually as needed, or buy them in a store, makes this kit a worthwhile purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can we help it?, Jan. 7 2008
This is an excellent book proposing that global warming is caused by natural phenomena and will happen, no matter what we do. Instead of trying to fight it, we might as well accept it and deal with its consequences. Plenty of research shows that there have been underlying cycles, such as a 1500-year cycle in global warming (it was warmer at the time of the Romans, than it is now; the sun is now 30% brighter than it was at the time the Earth was formed, etc.). It is a refreshing counter-argument to all the present hype and brings some sanity into the discussion.
