The aim of this book is to provide the student of Japanese with a simple method for correlating the writing and the meaning of Japanese characters in such a way as to make them both easy to remember. It is intended not only for the beginner, but also for the more advanced student looking for some relief from the constant frustration of how to write the kanji and some way to systematize what he or she already knows. The author begins with writing because--contrary to first impressions--it is in fact the simpler of the two. He abandons the traditional method of ordering the kanji according to their frequency of use and organizes them according to their component parts or "primitive elements." Assigning each of these parts a distinct meaning with its own distinct image, the student is led to harness the powers of "imaginative memory" to learn the various combinations that result. In addition, each kanji is given its own key word to represent the meaning, or one of the principal meanings, of that character. These key words provide the setting for a particular kanji's "story," whose protagonists are the primitive elements. In this way, students are able to complete in a few short months a task that would otherwise take years. Armed with the same skills as Chinese or Korean students, who know the meaning and writing of the kanji but not their pronunciation in Japanese, they are now in a much better position to learn to read (which is treated in a separate volume).

Updated to include the 196 new kanji approved by the Japanese government in 2010 as "general-use" kanji, the sixth edition of this popular text aims to provide students with a simple method for correlating the writing and the meaning of Japanese characters in such a way as to make them both easy to remember. It is intended not only for the beginner, but also for the more advanced student looking for some relief from the constant frustration of forgetting how to write the kanji, or for a way to systematize what he or she already knows. The author begins with writing the kanji because—contrary to first impressions–it is in fact simpler than learning how to the pronounce them. By ordering the kanji according to their component parts or "primitive elements," and then assigning each of these parts a distinct meaning with its own distinct image, the student is led to harness the powers of "imaginative memory" to learn the various combinations that make up the kanji. In addition, each kanji is given its own key word to represent the meaning, or one of the principal meanings, of that character. These key words provide the setting for a particular kanji’s "story," whose protagonists are the primitive elements. In this way, one is able to complete in a few short months a task that would otherwise take years. Armed with the same skills as Chinese or Korean students, who know the meaning and writing of the kanji but not their Japanese pronunciations, one is then in a much better position to learn the readings (which are treated in a separate volume).

Written by a White Belt and a Black Belt, this book contains the essence of Karate lore. Beginners will find all the basic concepts they'll need to get going. But it will also help higher ranks. As Master Funakoshi said, Taikyoku is a kata "of the most profound character and one to which, upon mastery of the art of karate, an expert will return to select it as the ultimate training kata." Taikyoku are used to introduce technique, but also the history and philosophy of Martial Arts. The authors share with you precepts of a master, insights of a beginner, and some Japanese and Okinawan lore and language picked up because of a life-long fascination with Things Japanese. You'll learn the meaning behind the Japanese words and kanji used in Karate, and improve your pronunciation along with your punches. You can use the book in conjunction with the Wado Ki Kai website at www.wadokikai.com. You'll actually be able to see the kata performed by Sensei Arce, step through it or stop motion to study any position. Whether a beginner just starting Martial Arts or a Black Belt reviewing the lore and language of Karate, this book has something for you.
