    , Not very happy with standard of reproduction, the photographs and line drawings are faint and lack contrast (i have in front of me the 1934 Japanese edition so I can see the originals are much, much clearer ) The authors translation is good,however,the standard of reproduction well below expectation. The ebook is a better option if you want a copy for research...five stars for the translation

    You may be surprised how much of these works you have already encountered. I have read passages or seen illustrations taken from these works in martial arts magazines etc , over the years. Importantly here is the complete work, rather than a single passage, used out of context. And that context is highly important. Mario McKenna is to be congratulated for his work in translating these works by Mabuni and allowing those of us with in the Karate world who cannot read Japanese access to these books. I can recommend these books to anyone interested in the technical depth of Karate or it's historical development in the 20th century.
