This classic Shotokan Karate Master Text has been printed for the explicit purpose of providing an exact reproduction of the complete original 1935 Japanese publication, preserving a historically accurate archive replica in the English language, that now can be experienced and enjoyed by all who can appreciate its significance. This legacy, as is the true goal of Karate Do, is meant to be experienced with mind, body, and Spirit. Master Funakoshi's message is transmitted in these pages through philosophical thought, physical and mental practice methods, and most importantly, with manifest image. Each photograph of Master Funakoshi not only demonstrates the exact form and method of each technique, but is also an archetypal key to the spiritual path he followed and exemplified. This book is a comprehensive guide for the study of karate and is credited as the foundation document of the modern day karate movement. Inner strength and personal character development are stressed through an active daily regimen of physical exercise and martial technique. Kara-te Do Kyohan is Master Funakoshi's gift to mankind. An informed study will reveal that his focus in life was to share his knowledge and the benefits he acquired and experienced through a life of conscious self-discipline rooted in the principles of Karate Do. Gichen Funakoshi (1868-1957) was born in Shuri, Okinawa and, as a boy, began training with Yasutsune Azato (Shuri-te) and Yasutsune Itosu (Naha-te). Through many years of diligent practice these two styles were blended and became what is known today as Shotokan Karate.

Karate-Do evolved as a martial art in Okinawa, where it was nurtured by centuries of Okinawan culture and innovation. What inspired the ancient masters to develop these martial techniques and practices was the human instinct for self-preservation, not a desire for entertainment or sporting competition. Traditional karate-do should be practiced with this in mind. Here you will find a complete personal training handbook to supplement training in any karate-do system or other martial art style. The authors have systematically organized their experiences and research into easily digestible segments and have included numerous photographs throughout the text. This book will inspire you to train even more diligently, and the experiences and research shared here will be useful on the journey of any traditional martial artist.
