I was sent details of this book in a press release by Tuttle (the publishers) and it looks very interesting. I’ve read other works by Antony Cummin and greatly enjoyed them (his book on Viking Martial Arts is a fun read!) so I’m looking forward to this. My copy is ordered and should be with me tomorrow.
Matthew Apsokardu is the author of the great Ikigai Way website, and he has just released his book--Tales from the Western Generation--which explores the history and development of karate in America. I highly recommend it to all karateka, but especially to American karateka!
Hi my name is Malcolm and Iain has asked me to tell you a little about Kudo. I was fortunate enough to meet Iain at a recent seminar arranged by Lee Taylor. Whilst demonstrating a throw Iain referenced how Kudo practitioners may use the position to submit the opponent on the floor. Lee Taylor kindly informed Iain that I was the Wales Representative for Kudo in the UK and an open discussion about the possibilities for Karate-ka within the Kudo platform developed, so as requested I will share my view on this topic.
