Reviews - What do customers think about Shotokan Karate: Its History and Evolution?

This is an excellent resource for Shotokan karate-ka.  Mar 7, 1998
I really enjoyed this book alot. I've studied Shotokan Karate since 1974, and ever since Mr. Hassell wrote his article for Kick Magazine in 1981, I have been looking for a more detailed account to be published in a book. I am planning on using this book as a study guide for my students. I highly recommend it!
A truly captivating work, a vortex of information!  Jan 16, 1998
Randall G. Hassell is again shown here, to be in "top form"! This captivating work, is a compilation of tangibly "intense research". This book is living snapshot into the martial arts, and scrutiny of one particular "family" of Martial Artists. It's focus is the passionate discussion of the evolution and development of the proverbial "family" known as Shotokan Karate. Agree or disagree with its author, but the presentation is compelling, EXTREMELY articulate, a very balanced and interesting read!
