"Mr. Lund's book appeals to instructors, students and enthusiasts whose aim it is to learn and teach the full potential of the body and mind in the art of combat." —Morne Swanepoel, Black Belt Magazine contributor and leading MMA and reality-based combat trainer

"Mr. Lund's book is one of the few books I would consider complete in providing an overall and detailed aspect of traditional Japanese karate. It's well outlined with pictures (too many to count), and descriptions of each of the categories that includes techniques and mannerism, and differences between the major styles." —Sensei Domi, BabyBoomerSensei blog
