Isshinryu Textbook: Second Edition
"This is a must read book for anyone who wishes to further their knowledge in the martial arts, regardless of style or system. I highly recommend this book for the serious martial artist. It will be most beneficial to you." Grandmaster "Willie" Adams, Hanshi, 10th Dan Isshinryu Karate.
Isshinryu Karate is designed for the way the body actually works and people fight under pressure. It rapidly builds self-defense capability and confidence. Isshinryu is a complete system that uses hand and foot techniques equally and a powerful vertical-fist snap punch. This manuscript is a textbook containing precise information about the empty-handed elements of the art, including critical theory and in-depth analysis. The book also offers a collection of questions and answers condensed from over fifteen years of Black Belt examinations. It is an outstanding informational resource by itself, and excellent supplement to class instruction.
Whether you are a future Black Belt, long-time instructor or Master seeking greater depth or additional proven teaching methods, this book has a lot for you. The Second Edition is greatly expanded from the First Edition. There is more depth on advanced concepts and Black Belt-level coverage of key empty-handed kata movements. Published December 1, 2017, as revised March 8, 2018.
This Second Edition Isshinryu Textbook was written by Master Jeffrey D. Modell, Esq., Sensei, 5th Dan Isshinryu Karate, Gung Fu practitioner, internationally recognized for designing Wing Chun Butterfly Swords, a forty-year plus martial artist, cadre instructor and member of the Black Belt Promotions Board at the Southfield Martial Arts Institute, in Michigan, USA.
