Well, I get by an a smattering and perhaps when I reach retirement age, I can spend some time on getting to know the language better. Actually, some 25 years ago or so, Kancho Ashihara communicated with us in Japanese - that took many trips to the Japanese Embassy to assist as we didn't have at the time but now have a very small Japanese presence. The first Street Fight books was in Japanese and we studied those books even though most of the writing was not understood.

My collection of budo books (especially those on Kyokushin and related styles) include languages like English, Japanese, Dutch, Swedish, Hungarian, Russian, Spanish, Indonesian, Turkish and so on. Most of the pictorial ones have technique. Karate being karate means that one can understand what is happening irrespect of the language.

I've been fortunate to travel to many diverse countries where English is not the spoke language - knowing basic terminology means that one can teach.

And as to collecting them -well, its a passion.

Osu,

Received today
LA FEMME ET LE KARATE SAMOURAI PAR ROGER LESOURD


Roger Lesourd was one of the first (if not the first) to train with Mas Oyama. The book was specifically written with ladies in mind as the title suggests. Inside the book - Taikyoku was slightly modified viz technique - the gedan barai was replaced with shuto uke and the punch with what looks like haito.

What is of greater interest is that there are two pages with pictures of him and Mas Oyama which includes Jon Bluming and Kenji Kurosaki. One is with him and Oyama practising kanku dai. Another is with him having a meal with the Oyama's - looks like daughter "Grace" seated and Mrs Oyama busy at the stove.

Osu,


Earlier this week received the Free Style Karate book of Akira Masuda as well as a complimentary booklet on tournament records (Budo Jin). The book also had an instructional DVD with a few techniques. Interesting take on how his karate is evolving with throws and take-downs.

I used to be an avid Gong Kakutougi (Japanese Kickboxing/Knockdown/MMA publication) "reader" when I was a teen. Funny thing is, I hardly knew any Japanese and still hardly know any! I'm just more aware of how much I don't know, now! I know a bit of Thai, but I'm quickly getting rusty..and need to start studying it again .

The purpose of it for me was to see great fighters from around the world.

I can ready some Hiragana and Katakana, but it takes me a "while"...and even fewer Kanji. I have a gift of knowing a smidgin of many different words & phrases in many different languages and dialects...but only fluent in one! LOL! I tip my hat off to anybody that doesn't speak English as a first language and is able to carry on a conversation on here.

However, Sensei Duval is publishing a American knockdown publication of sorts sometime, soon! He already runs a great internet martial art radio show! If you haven't checked it out yet, you should, it's free, too!
Osu!

Sounds like we exactly in the same boat!!!

Speaking of that -Afrikaans is my first language and English my second - but I read so much that my English is acceptable. Also did English as a major at Varsity so all that helps.

Eagerly awaiting the release of the magazine.

Osu,

Having an extremely nice day - this morning received another package with two books and one of them came as a wonderful surprise.


Hot off the press, I have been lucky to be a recipient of one of the first prints of Shidokan Atlanta's book- "How to be a Champion"

Just scanned through it and will post a review sometimes in the near future.

Playing Devil's Advocate now eh? Safely in China - but remember, Coca Cola comes from Atlanta, and Shidokan can send some contaminated ones to you ...

Osu,

Received today a copy of Budo Karate by Flemming Schrøter (Flemming Jensen as he was known during the 2nd World Tournament)


Whilst searching for Brian Fitkin's book on some Scandinavian sites, I ran across this book. It was advertised for DKK250 (about US$46)

Flemming Schrøter, 6th Dan Sosai IKO Kyokushin Karate is probably the kyokushin champion in Denmark, who achieved the greatest results, and in any event, the first to win the European Championship (1982). Flemming Schrøter describes in this book the story of the beginning of Kyokushin in Denmark.

It also provides many of the basic rules for one to be able to train IKO Sosai Kyokushin.
65 pages soft cover in Danish text.

I was rather excited when I saw the advert for the book as my original books by the founder of Kyokushin in Denmark - Jorgen Albrechtsen was "borrowed" and never returned by one of my Kyokushin Shihan of the time. I founf it rather pricey and got a colleague to get the book for me.

Somewhat disappointed in that it is more of an informational brochure/manual than a real book. I had expected more. But such is life.

Osu,

Just got a superb condition April 1967 edition of What is Karate for a paltry $10 - bought 6 other books with that. Many of the second hand bookstores keep all martial arts books for me so this was a lucky day for me ...

Osu,

Just got Nathan Ligo's Mightier than the Sword - a Kyokushin Karate coming of Age Story. It was posted to me and then returned due to a missing digit on my box number, so I am rather happy and hope to get into it later this evening.


Just another unassuming undergrad? Yes, but this one carries a terrible secret . . . one that's driven him through seven years of hellish karate training and study so that he might learn to bear its weight. Seven years have already taken Nathan Ligo to Japan, where he spent 600 days in the most rigorous, monastic karate program in the world, training under the watchful daily supervision of Masutatsu Oyama, Japan's most famous living karateka. But it's not until he suffers a crushing defeat in Japan, and returns home empty-handed, that he comes to understand that the combination of three treasured sources of his ongoing education just might hold the key to unlocking an awesome truth.

Available from Amazon.

I didnt like this book. It just has lots of unnecesasry emphasizes on his love life and problems he faced while grewing up with his step mother and uncaring father. Majority of the events in the book described have no relevance to his training with kyokushin. I would have invested my money in "Uchi deshi in america" by Saiko Oyama. Its a great story and doesnt go outside the boundary of the context which is kyokushin.

I look forward to reading the book myself. I loved the Uchi Deshi in America book - especially the bit where he gets "promised" - win the tournament and you can date the well built blondie ... - a real misnomer in real life social behaviour.

But, sometimes, some people find difficulty in separating issues but the title stats a Kyokushin karate coming of age story - so maybe that was the author's idea? Will give my feedback once I've read it.

I'm pretty sure that part of Saiko Shihans book actually happened. I have met the uchi deshi who the book was written about and the girl that he could ask on a date if he won the tournament.

Osu!

Excellent incentive but based on the comments on the thread about dating/relationships within the dojo - many might not consider it to be too kosher.
