Master Masao Kawasoe and the Foundations of Shotokan Karate Tech
Master Masao Kawasoe and the Foundations of Shotokan Karate Technique
a new great book by Dr Clive Layton
This book is an engaging, highly informative, thought-provoking and interactive read that could well prove to be the most important in-depth technical treatise on Shotokan karate ever written. Master Kawasoe, 8th Dan, a world-renown Shotokan technician of fifty years experience, describes, using just one stance, two variations of one type of punch and two types of block, what he believes underpins all Shotokan technique. The book details a bio-mechanical five-step sequence of inward actions that pick-up, momentarily store and channel energy, and the outward process of delivering and focussing that energy – all in about one-fifth of a second!
