  5. Japan's Complete Fighting System "Shin Kage Ryu"

    Japan's Complete Fighting System "Shin Kage Ryu"

    $35.00

    Shin Kage Ryu jujutsu has existed as a fighting system since the nineteenth century, and the literal meaning of the three Chinese characters is "spirit shadow way." Originating in J apan and influenced by Okinawan fighting systems, the art has evolved into one that ip.corporates karate-like kicks, punches, and strikes, as well as the throwing, grappling, and joint techniques of judo. Thus, Shin Kage Ryu is a complete fighting system, one that combines the best elements of karate with those of jujutsu.

    The unique mix of disciplines in Shin Kage Ryu makes it possible to fight with an opponent in an upright position and, if necessary, take him to the ground and score a victory by grappling or choking. Students are also taught extensive attack and defense techniques with both the sword and knife.

    Author of the successful Karate Training: The Samurai Legacy and Modern Practice, Robin L. Rielly has written this book as an introduction to Shin Kage Ryu for those unfamiliar with it, and to insure that the knowledge of this fighting art is not lost. It remains a pure martial art, and because it is not practiced in sporting contests, its kata are often closer to real combat. Although in some ways similar to karate kata, advanced black belts in karate agree that the kata of Shin Kage Ryu have a different feeling-one that is both powerful and effective. As such, this book is an essential handbook for every karate practitioner and enthusiast. Learn More

  7. Dynamic Karate

    Dynamic Karate

    $30.00

    Most books on karate usually do not provide complete, detailed instructions and illustrations-the fundamentals plus the fine points-that readers hope for. This book fills the gaps left by others.

    The late Master Masatoshi Nakayama, chief instructor of the Japan Karate Association, left this book as a testament. It reveals his great experience as a karate competitor and teacher, describing and illustrating in detail all the correct movements involved in the particular block, punch, or kick you want to perfect, as well as instructions--on combining blocking techniques with decisive counterattacks. Also included is a glossary of all Japanese karate terms and a guide to their pronunciation.

    Because of the lightning speed of karate techniques, normal camera work often fails to record the action accurately. For this reason, many of the photo sequences found in Dynamic Karate were taken using a stroboscope with a flash time of 1/10,000 of a second, enabling you to follow each movement as it is actually performed.

  10. Bai Sao: Wing Chuns Taproot

    Bai Sao: Wing Chuns Taproot

    $25.00

    BaiSao, a little-known exercise Yip Man used to demonstrate Wing Chun to strangers, becomes a window into Wing Chun theory, tying together ChiSao, Wooden Man, and fighting applications. Revealed is the amazing depth of thinking behind a sparkling, casual, but totally absorbing 10-20 second "elevator speech" demo of the martial art that gave Bruce Lee his start. This unique book is structured around quotations from Wang Kiu, the least-known of Yip Man's original core students. Written to resemble a college course, with "lecture/demo", "reading", and "lab" sections, with about 200 photos, BaiSao introduces Maier's YumCha series, evoking an atmosphere of out-of-class discussions where training becomes illumination, treating Wing Chun as a principle-based art of generating and solving puzzles. Wang's sole American student, Maier focused his Ph.D. work on Wing Chun's "Tactical Cognition", evident in suggestive threads into logistics, task analysis, concept mapping, motion analysis and cognitive science.
