The Twenty Guiding Principles of Karate: The Spiritual Legacy of the Master

By Gichin Funakoshi, Jotaro Takagi
Gichin Funakoshi, "the father of karate," once said that "the ultimate aim of karate lies not in victory nor defeat, but in the perfection of the character of its participants."

"Whether or not you practice the martial arts, they make a great deal of sense, and will take you far, as a philosophy of life." -BookLoons Reviews

"While focused on the practice and application of martial arts, this book's "pursuit of the way" has myriad applications for less physical forms of combat, work-related or otherwise" -Publishers Weekly

"Filled with philosophical musings, fascinating historical episodes, and advice for anyone seeking a better way." -Rafu Shimpo

"The Master insists on a training that involves both mind and body, to create a karate-do, a karate way." -Asian Week
