Save your quarters
Yes I know, "Shotokan Karate Magazine" is not a book, but when you take into consideration the incredible amount of first hand knowledge this magazine has published, it might as well be.
The issues over the past twenty years with their sheer number of wonderful stories, reports on courses, and one on one interviews with some of the greatest Shotokan instructors of our time, put this quarterly publication head and shoulders above any other periodical, and many books, when it comes to the subject of Shotokan Karate.
Started by Editor, John Cheetham, Yon Dan, and published in England, this magazine is in my opinion simply a "must have" for any serious student of Shotokan karate. While many of the articles and interviews often lean towards clubs, courses, and instructors who reside and teach primarily in the UK and Europe, the magazine's unbiased, non-political approach, make it very even handed and definitely reader friendly.
You can subscribe to Shotokan Karate Magazine on line and then like the rest of us, start egarly watching for the postman when each new issue is due.
Information is only a resource,
any good or evil that comes from it
lies within it's application.
Part the clouds - see the way.
"The objective of karate-do is to contribute to the evolution
of the human spirit through physical and mental training."
Sensei Peter Lindsay
