More > and photographs that are reproduced in both the first edition, as well as this Revised and Expanded Second Edition, it comparatively represents a step into what was, for these latter two books, the future. The year 2019, in which I am writing this foreword, represents respectively 30 years and 20 years into the future since the publication of these two books, so I think this faithful reproduction of the Master Version by Q&I Publications as an eBook is well timed.

More > we notice a truth in the data in art that seeks enlightenment, be it good or bad, it should be discussed & hopefully the results will lead to better outcomes for elite karate-ka in the decades to come. We examine the central topic of longevity & karate by using instructor lifespan data, a review of medical diagnostics & research, longevity research encompassing sports physiology, karate psychology and behaviour patterns which has shown to be tied to longevity. We also discuss some interesting statements on the topic by passed masters such as Itosu of the 1800s, Shito-ryu’s Mabuni, Asai of Shotokan who openly stated health may not go hand-in-hand with budo. Despite the fact that karate provides many upsides for its practitioners, why does it appear to reduce lifespan & what can be done about it?< Less
