The Heians or Pinans are widely the most recognisable and practised kata in karate circles today, they are also arguably the most misunderstood. If analysed, practised and taught effectively the Heian/Pinan kata have the potential to be a complete fighting system for the learning karateka, containing strikes, kicks, joint locks, throws, grappling and so on. With over 350 pictures this book shows how the Heian kata can be used as tools for a physical confrontation, building skills for this environment that could help an individual escape from this scenario, using simple, effective, progressive bunkai contained within this series of kata. 'Lee's book helps show that karate can be a very real solution to the problem of civilian self defence. It is an excellent read and I highly recommend it.' Iain Abernethy-6th Dan World Combat Association

This book is a great insight into the depth that the Heian / Pinan katas have to offer. Not only is the kata clearly explained, but also shows practical applications for every single move within those forms. Most books on the Pinan katas do not cover applications at all or show very dubious applications which have no chance of working in the real world. Lee's book helps show that karate can be a very real solution to the problem of civilian self defence. It is an excellent read and I highly recommend it.
