ImageThe Character of Goju-Ryu, Kata Implications for Experienced Practitioners, is hot off the presses and available for shipment now!

The theme of the book revolves around how to understand what Goju-Ryu kata have to teach, and to provide a methodology intended to help us learn how to learn from the kata – not just learn the kata.

As the title indicates, the book is intended for experienced practitioners (ni-dan and above) and assumes that competence in kata performance exists.  It is not a book about learning the kata or how to perform them – we already have excellent examples for that.

For those who seek an understanding of the lessons of kata the book should be a valuable resource.  Because of the limited audience, only a minimum quantity will be printed

Written by Rich Stamper over the course of many years and containing 392 pages, the book can be obtained from GKK HQ's for $24.95 (GKK members) with free shipping in the USA .  Price for non-members is $34.95 plus shipping.
