Click here to download my book - 'An Introduction to Applied Karate'


This FREE e-book provides the fundamental information needed to begin practicing karate as the wide-ranging and pragmatic fighting system it was supposed to be. 'An Introduction to Applied Karate' covers a four stage approach that progresses from the practise of solo kata to the live application of the techniques and concepts 'hidden' within them.

This e-book provides information on:

Practising kata in a meaningful way; The key mental and physical components of kata; Kata Applications (Bunkai); The fourteen rules that will allow you to unlock the techniques 'hidden' within kata; The underlying concepts and essence of kata; Kata-Based Sparring (sparring methods that will enable you develop real combative skill); And More!

2nd Free e-book coming soon!

In a week's time we will send you a link to the second e-book 'The Application of the Pinan / Heian Series'!

All the best
