This comprehensive translation of the Bubishi-the ancient manual of karate-is the most complete available. Karate historian and authority Patrick McCarthy spent over ten years researching and studying the Bubishi and the arts associated with it. The English translation of this remarkable tome includes numerous explanations and notes. McCarthy's work also includes groundbreaking research on Okinawan and Chinese history, as well as the fighting and healing traditions that developed in those countries, making it a gold mine for researchers and practitioners alike. For the final word on the true origins and spirit of classic Okinawan martial arts, one need look no further. No other classic work has had as dramatic an impact on the shaping and development of karate as the Bubishi.
