Shotokan Karate Magazine

“Far from ordinary”.

Yes, I know, Shotokan Karate Magazine is not a book. But, when you take into account the incredible amount of first-hand knowledge that this magazine publishes, it might as well be.

The magazine 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. This puts this quarterly publication head and shoulders above any other periodical and many books, when it comes to the subject of Shotokan Karate.

The magazine was started over 30 years ago by Editor, John Cheetham, Yon Dan. It is published in England and this magazine for me is a must have. Yes, most of the articles and interviews often lean towards clubs, courses and instructors who reside and teach primarily in the UK or Europe. But, the sheer number of wonderful stories and interviews with some of the greatest Shotokan instructors of our time, put this quarterly publication head and shoulders above any other periodical when it comes to the subject of Shotokan Karate. I particularly like that this magazine takes an unbiased, non-political approach, that makes it a very even handed and definitely reader friendly product that is packed with value from cover to cover.

Remember: “Information is only a resource, any good that comes from it lies within it's application”.
