Tsuku Kihon refers to powerful and dynamic techniques used and taught by some Shotokan karate instructors. the idea behind Tsuku Kihon is that power and closing distance are greatly enhanced by propelling the body forward using basic karate principles. A group of approximately 25 Tsuku Kihon combinations was developed by several Shotokan instructors in the middle of the 20th century. Sensei Luis Bernardo Mercado decided to expand and categorize Tsuku Kihon in order to increase its applications and to create a formal structure for teaching them. Many months of trial and error by the author of this book resulted in an additional 42 combinations and three methods by which Tsuku Kihon can be systematically taught to intermediate and advanced karate students. This book is a result of that effort. This 2nd Edition also has beautiful original artwork by Nobu Kaji and Egil Thomson.

Shotokan Karate is one of the most effective forms of self-defense but it is this area that is most ignored in traditional Shotokan dojos. This modest manual is different from most Shotokan Karate texts because it focuses on the self-defense application of karate. Traditional Shotokan karate concentrates on three primary areas. They are basics or Kihon, Kata or forms, and sparring or kumite. The sparring may consist of five times sparring, three times sparring, one time sparring, semi-free sparring and free sparring. Self-defense training is seldom practiced and this manual hopes to fill that gap for students of Shotokan and other traditional styles of Karate. This manual covers the basic principles of self-defense, use of force factors in self-defense, simple and effective self-defense techniques to counter arm grabs, body grabs, choke attacks, punching and kicking attack counters, club attacks, knife attacks, gun attacks, ground attacks and multiple attacker self-defense techniques.

Complete Shotokan Karate is actually two books in one: a thorough history of Japanese karate in Asia and the United States, and an instructional manual for students of the Shotokan method. Part One outlines the history of karate from its probable origins in India (or perhaps Greece), and its transmission from China through Okinawa to Japan. Relevant aspects of Japanese history and culture, such as the samurai ethos and Zen, are emphasized. Part Two, profusely illustrated with over 600 clear black-and-white photographs and 20 line drawings, outlines instruction for kumite (sparring drills). Included are two-person drills such as the double-line drill and the circle drill which give practice in facing multiple opponents. Descriptions of many of these drills are not found in other English-language books. In addition, nine karate kata (forms) are presented, two of which, sochin and nijushiho, are rarely seen in print in English. The two parts of this exhaustive book—the first historical and philosophical, the second practical—combine to form one of the most comprehensive presentations of Shotokan karate available in English. Complete Shotokan Karate is an essential resource for all those interested in Japanese karate.

The "Encyclopedia" covers the genre from 1920 to 1994. The genre, however, can be very confusing: films often have several titles, and many of the stars have more than one pseudonym. In an effort to clarify some of the confusion, the authors have included all the information available to them on almost 3,300 films. Each entry includes a listing of the production company, the cast and crew, distributors, running times, reviews with star ratings whenever possible, and alternate film titles. A list of film series and one of the stars' pseudonyms, in addition to a 7,900 name index, are also included. Illustrated.
