The Isshinryu System
This power packed book illustrates the essential requirements of Isshinryu from beginner to black belt. More than 1,000 clear photographs detail the movements of the basic exercises, kicks, and katas in an easy-to-understand format. The book discusses history, stance, free spar, basic upper body exercises, kicks, kata, kobudo, and terminology. The layout is clear, crisp, and easy to understand. For the first time, there is a teaching manual with a non-political format. This book contains a journal for you and your students to record their progress in Isshinryu. At the back of each kata section, there is a 50 question multiple choice test and a 20 word vocabulary matching test.
This is a truly technical reference for any serious student of Isshinryu. Seventh Degree Black Belt Karate Master, Norbert Donnelly, presents another book in a continuing series on Isshinryu Karate. Sensei Donnelly is widely recognized as a leading contributor to the further expansion of Isshinryu.
