About This Item

This is the history of the style of karate taught by of one of Okinawa's greatest living karate masters, Grandmaster Fusei Kise. The development of Suidi (Shuri-te) and Shorin-ryu are examined within the context of Ryukyuan history, and the great masters such as Kusanku, Toudi Sakugawa and Bushi Matsumura are seen in the political, cultural and economic background of their time. The history of Shorin-Ryu Matsumura in the 20th century is presented in two interviews with Master Hohan Soken that were not previously available in English. This history is brought up to the present day through interviews with Grandmaster Kise and his students throughout the world. It is a large format paperback, 8 ½ x 11 inches, 176 pages, limited to 1500 copies. There are over 100 photographs. First published in Okinawa in 2005, the English language edition was published in 2008.
