Look Inside Book
The book Black Belt Karate gives a brief history of how the karate we are now studying came into being and how it has developed from the latter part of the last century right up to modern day. The book also describes how sport competition karate is now the driving force behind many karate schools, which makes it very attractive to younger practitioner. The lack of emphasis in many schools on traditional karate values and ethos has led to a fall in the number of adult students, but this book is suitable for all ages and aims to further your karate education and all-round development.
This book is aimed at students who have already started the long path in the study of karate.
