Mark Groenewold has lived in Japan for the better part of his professional life from 1992 onwards. He has been a teacher at junior and senior high schools, colleges, universities and graduate schools. He has also had the profound pleasure, honour and joy to train in karate under Sensei Takao Taniguchi of Ishikawa-ken, Japan. Although his own karate is easily classified as "feeble at best", his teachers have been phenomenal in both their own abilities and patience in dealing with this lumbering Canadian. Mark hopes that this book will inspire you to take up karate for your life and to come along on a seldom trod path. Come and see how karate is done in a regular karate dojo, with teachers who are anything but "regular".
