Item description for Okinawan Karate: The Teachings of Eihachi Ota (Karate Masters) by Michael Rovens, Mark Pollard & Eihachi Ota...

Shorin Ryu is one of the world's major Karate styles. Created and developed by Okinawan masters, this style mixes the traditions and experiences of the ancient art with a modern approach to self-defense. In this work, Master Ota shows key traditional kata and bunkai. Some of the traditional Shorin Ryu forms illustrated in this essential book have never been analyzed this way before. This work is more than a how-to manual; it explores the history and philosophy behind this dynamic and practical method of karate-do. Containing hundreds of photo illustrations that show the forms step-by-step, this book will be a valuable reference for anyone seeking to learn and understand not only the principles and techniques of Shorin Ryu but also the cultural essence of Okinawan Karate.

Reviews - What do customers think about Okinawan Karate: The Teachings of Eihachi Ota (Karate Masters)?

Okinawan Matsubayashi Shorin-ryu Karate  Jul 29, 2007
I highly recommend this book. Other than Sensie Soshin Nagimine's book, this is the only book in English that I have have found on Matsubayashi Shorin-ryu. A student of Sensei Nagamine, Sensei Ota gives insightful interpretation to the katas, karate history and training tradition. I also found Sensei Ota's dvd on makiwara and conditioning useful, though a digital rendering of a vhs.
A concise view of Matsubayashi Ryu  Jun 27, 2007
I found the book to be very informative on the body mechanics used in Okinawa karate, in comparison with Japanese karate, as exemplified by Shotokan. Definitely worth reading.
