    5 Stars My name is Michael Pauley. I have been studying and practicing the art of Okinawan Goju Ryu Karate for eight years. I recently purchased Yushikan: Entering Through the Gateway of Gojuryu. This is an outstanding book and I would highly recommend it for any serious Karate-ka. The book offers a concise yet very interesting description of Okinawan karate lineage. I found the history of Gojuryu and how it is linked to other forms of Okinawan karate to be very enlightning and informative. This book is a wealth of karate knowledge with sections on dojo etiquette, system curriculums, Kata, Drills and more. There is also a Japanese terminology section which is very useful to anyone seriously interested in the study of Karate. This book is truly a work of art and Shihan Jones passion for karate can easily be seen in every section that he has so painstakingly researched. I read this book over two evenings and have gone back to it several times for review. I cannot recommend this book... More > more highly. I would also suggest that you purchase two of Shihan Jones other books for a complete library from this knowledgeable author. These two books are Gojuryu-Ryu Futari Geiko: Two Person Training and Okinawan Martial Arts Center, Student Progress Manual. Yushikan: Entering Through the Gateway of Gojuryu has become my go to source for all things Gojuryu.< Less

    Hi my name is Lloyd C. Johnson III. I have been involved in Gojuryu Karate-do since 1958. I have know the author and trained with him for over 25 years. I am not at all surprised at the quality of work put out by Mr. C. Michial Jones. This book is probably the most comprehensive and important books on Gojuryu written by a non Okinawan or Japanese instructor. This comprehensive book on traditional karate is suitable for not only the beginner but for the accomplished practitioner as well. I will be recommending this book to my students. This is a must read book for not just those studying Gojuryu, but for every serious karate-ka. The information inside is worth more than all of the books in your library.

    A very good book. The author provides great Gojuryu historical facts, discussions, traditional exercises and drills. A complete section provides a practice syllabus for students to advance through their karate-do training. A must have for those wishing to build a reference library to advance your knowledge and skills in the art of Okinawan Goju Ryu Karate-do.
