I received the books today!!!!......They are absolutely beautiful!!!......Thank you so much for signing them......The quality is outstanding and the detail is second to none......Now I know why your books are so sought after......Please keep up the great work!....I look forward to purchasing more books from you in the near future....Have a fantastic day!!

Thank you again,

Tanaka Sensei's book is one of the best I've ever had, and I'll be recommending it to others. This goes well beyond the usual threadbare and misleading "picture book" format of most martial arts books. The explanations are articulate and clear. In this I can actually grasp the points that Tanaka Sensei wants to make, and practice them as well. Since most of us won't have the chance to train with Tanaka Sensei, this book seems like the next best thing.

Hi Schlatt, I'm pleased you like the new issue. I think the Tanaka book is tremendous - the best kumite book I have ever seen, you did a great job there. Also the 'dictionary' is superb. If I get some space I will tell everyone how good the Tanaka book is. Talk to you again, all the best for now,

Perfecting Kumite is probably one of the best books on martial arts that I have seen. Will you be translating any more titles into English?
