Libro FUNAKOSHI, Gichin The Essence of Karate, inglese. 13,5x19,5 cm, 128 pag., Foreword by Hirokazu Kanazawa, afterword by Gisho Funakoshi, translated by Richard Berger. Fundamentally, a small collection of memories, short anecdotes and words of wisdom from the great man; this book is quite the little gem. The Essence of Karate give us wonderful insights into Funakoshi himself but also much more than I've ever read before about his great masters, Itosu and Azato, their similarities and differences and the effect of their fighting styles upon unfortunate opponents. The forward by Sensei Kanazawa is quite interesting in itself but the afterword by Gisho Funakoshi, his nephew is filled with warmth, respect and awe for an uncle he briefly knew but left an ever lasting impression. The Essence of Karate by Gichin Funakoshi is an absolute must for any Karate enthusiast.
