    This book is truly ground breaking! Applied Karate is making a come back after decades of turning towards sports and “kid friendly” versions of the once self defense oriented art. The practitioners who have contributed to this book are leading the way towards the “Applied” movement. I highly recommend this book for anyone who would like to take their practice of martial arts to a practical level, relevant to defending oneself in a world of violence.

    This is a book that will be read and re-read. The concept ensures that the chapters stand or fall on the merit of the writing and subjective content rather than the name and reputation of the individual authors. An excellent addition to the bookshelf of any enquiring martial artist regardless of the art, sport or pastime they practice. Highly recommended.

    This is a really interesting read. The unique approach to reading the book really encourages you to think and opens your mind, and challanges your way of thinking. Great collection of mind's put together for a really good read.

    I must say before I review this book that I am in it, but having said that the concept of the book and the way it is layed out mean that doesn't really make a lot of difference. I have just finished my first read through and would have to say it was an interesting and thought provoking experience. It is good to get access to the ideas without the attribution so you genuinely think about the message rather than the thoughts of your favourite authority (who we all tend to pick because they match what we already think anyway) There were a good spread of views from a wide community. Definitely not a single read book and more of a project than a textbook. Read it, see what you think, read it again and see if you still think the same. Pick it up again in another year and see what you think after you've taken some of the concepts on board and trained that way for a while, see if you still think that way. I suppose basically what I'm saying is that this is a book that'll be on and off the... More > shelf for years rather than an "I read that once" that you never pick up again.< Less
