In addition to the basic techniques it includes: the five principles of defense (Uke no Go Gensoku), the eight directional responses (Tenshin Happo), the five elbow striking methods, ( Hiji Ate Goho), application (Hokei Kumite) and kata Bassai Dai, Shinsei, Chintei, Seipai, Juroku, Shinokosokun, Rohai, Tensho and Seyunchin.
The excellent historical section, excusive interview with the son of the founder of Shito Ryu, and the demonstrations by Teruo Hayashi transform this acknowledged technical masterpiece by Kenzo Mabuni and Hideharu Igaki into a rich educational experience!
