Okinawan Karate, Revised and Expanded Second Edition; Master Version By Mark D Bishop

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.

It enhances our understanding of Daoism: its vision of mind, emotions, and the self, its views on the origins and manifestations of evil, and its take on family, society, deities, and the otherworld.< Less
