Master Okinawan goju-ryu karate with Seikichi Toguchi’s highly anticipated sequel.
In this follow-up to his first book on goju-ryu karate, shorei-kan founder Seikichi Toguchi reveals the art’s origin in Okinawa. He gives a history of goju-ryu and relates lessons learned from his master, Chojun Miyagi (the inspiration behind the Mr. Miyagi character in The Karate Kid films). In relating his experiences, he explores the importance of kaisai and kata training and examines the virtues of dedication, devotion and commitment.
Okinawan Goju-Ryu II: Advanced Techniques of Shorei-Kan Karate contains scores of photographs with detailed captions that illustrate advanced goju-ryu techniques, including stances, strikes, blocks and kicks. Seikichi Toguchi also offers approaches to kata and kiso kumite (prearranged sparring).
Whether you’re a traditional martial artist or a hard-core self-defense enthusiast, you’ll benefit from the techniques and training exercises in Okinawan Goju-Ryu.
