About the Author:

Hidetaka Nishiyama (1928-2008) began his study in 1943 as a student of Gichin Funakoshi, founder of Shotokan Karate. Nishiyama-sensei was an internationally recognized instructor, author, and administrator, and helped to establish the Japan Karate Association (JKA). He was a member of the delegation that introduced the study of Japanese martial arts to the U.S. Air Force Strategic Air Command and subsequently to the U.S. as a whole.

Richard C. Brown is a senior American member of the Japan Karate Association (JKA).


"What this phenomenal book has, that many martial arts books don't have, is constant reminders to 'avoid these mistakes.' This is one of the many reasons that so many martial artists have found value in this work. Throughout the entire book, they consistently highlight shortcomings to avoid, essentially bringing a qualified instructor right into your home. I wholeheartedly recommend this book to any serious martial artist and to those who are just curious about karate. Its price is quite nominal, making it more than an affordable addition to your library, but also as a means of measuring ones betterment." — KarateForums.com
