Karate is not only a means of self-defense; it is also a sport and philosophy, "a way of Life." This book examines each of these aspects and explains why educators and parents are becoming interested in karate as an educational tool. This book draws on the vast knowledge and skill of one of the foremost Karate masters in the world, Randall Hassell. The author, through a series of chapters, focuses on different philosophical themes, explaining many of the fundamental principles and telling how Karate can change the lives of those who practice it--giving them health, self-confidence, and both physical and mental discipline. This book will be one of the more sought-after works in decades to come; it adds insight for those karate practitioners interested in the philosophies of Budo and how they apply to the art of the "empty hand." It is a quiet but powerful work that is one of the best ever written about the philosophical aspects of Karate.
