🇩🇪 Book | From black belt to master

This book is ideal for ...
all karateka from 1st dan who want to go in depth.


Predominantly practice-oriented and with numerous graphics and illustrations, this book is dedicated to the deepening of the basic principles of karate under the condition that the basic knowledge is available. Various exercises are shown, with which each subtlety can be specifically and systematically internalized.

The topics covered, including: body and hip insertion, rhythms, staggered starts, body center and the unification of forces, are explained in an easy-to-understand manner with the help of symbols, graphics, illustrations and illustrated intermediate movements, making them easy to follow during training.

The two fold-out flaps integrated in the cover serve as a legend for the symbols and at the same time as an index of the Japanese terms used - a practical companion throughout the book.

On the way to becoming a master, the spiritual component is just as much a part of it as the physical. This aspect is also part of this book. A must for the karateka who does not want to move on the surface with his karate practice, but wants to go further into the depths.
