Richard did a nice job putting this together. Although it was never meant to be a definitive work on goju or karate, it did hit it's mark with the pics and stories from days gone by. The only problem I had with it is that fact that neither randy or larry has a school and has been keeping up on their karate studies in a structured format but who cares.. they both trained hard enough they will never forget what they have learned and are a couple of great guys and good goju men. So I give it 5 stars because it is nostalgic and well meant on the part of the author. So forget trying to fact check every historical item or other point of contention. Just enjoy it as one persons view into a past that most people, other then those who trained there, will never know.
