Treasured for centuries by karate's top masters, the Bubishi is a classic Chinese work on philosophy, strategy, medicine, and technique as they relate to the martial arts. Referred to as the "bible of karate" by famous master Chojun Miyagi, for hundreds of years the Bubishiwas a secret text passed from master to student in China and later in Okinawa. All of karate's legendary masters have studied it, applied its teachings, or copied passages from it. No other classic work has had as dramatic an impact on the shaping and development of karate as the Bubishi. Karate historian and authority Patrick McCarthy spent over ten years researching and studying the Bubishi and the arts associated with it. The first English translation of this remarkable martial arts manual 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. This karate book is one of the best karate training supplements available.

Many books have been written about the origins of Karate-Do and the legendary masters who caused its meteoric rise into what has become a worldwide sporting phenomenon. Karate is practiced by tens of millions in over seventy countries. Although most of its practitioners are children, the majority of books that have been written are for adults. The Little Bubishi tells the story of karate and the amazing tales of its legendary masters in an enjoyable way that is intended for children. But the story is enjoyable for readers of all ages. The legends of Karate-Do are brought to life in its beautifully descriptive stories that tell of the heroics and steely determination that embody karate history. The peaceful philosophies behind this multi-layered martial art are too often overlooked, while its graphic fighting forms more often take center stage. Karate is explained simply, so children may gain a greater understanding of the true meaning and nature of Karate-Do. The Little Bubishi: A History of Karate for Children is essential reading for all young karate enthusiasts. Andrew Michael O'Brien has taught hundreds of children karate over three decades, and has always used storytelling to motivate them. I also realized that no books like this have ever been written for children. He lives in Cardiff, Wales, and is working on his next two children's books.

Learn how to target the weaknesses of an attacker and effectively exploit them in order to defend yourself. The 36 Deadly Bubishi Points gives detailed explanations on how the pressure points of traditional Chinese medicine found in the Bubishi, the venerable "Bible of Karate," are used in attacking an opponent and how to defend yourself against such attacks. This book closely examines these vital points and the science behind them. While much has been written about the vital points and their medicinal importance, thanks to the popularity of practices such as acupuncture, martial research on the subject has been lacking. Cardwell discusses the vital points from the perspective of an experienced martial artist—including how the body's vital points are related to the 8 extraordinary vessels and 12 meridians which circulate energy throughout the body. Through detailed step-by-step instructions and over 96 photographs and illustrations, The 36 Deadly Bubishi Points shows how this knowledge can be employed in self-defense. Respond to an attacker by employing these ancient methods in modern, violent situations.

The Western Bubishi is an advanced exploration into the application of Traditional Chinese Medicine to the fighting arts. The Extraordinary Vessels are examined with extreme detail, which rivals many Traditional Chinese Medicine textbooks. Their functions and interactions with the twelve Main Meridians are covered and provide an easy to understand description. Each of the eight Extraordinary Vessels are examined point-by-point and various methods to attack them are presented from a martial perspective. The thirty-six Vital Points that were listed in the historic martial document - The Bubishi - are examined in great detail and provides the western student with a much clearer picture of the combative importance of that document. The Primary Energetic Target of the body is provided with detailed analysis. The subject of Body Alarm Reaction (BAR) is covered with solid research and provides the western martial artists a better understanding of this phenomenon. BAR is then examined from an eastern perspective, and combined with Extraordinary Vessel interactions to illustrate how to utilize the knowledge in a combative sense. This book is the first in a series that will unlock the true combative methods of eastern-based fighting disciplines.
