Descripción del producto
Reseña del editor
Shoshin Nagamine, a master instructor of Okinawan karate, was closely acquainted with many of the legendary Okinawan martial artists of whom he writes in Tales of Okinawa's Great Masters. Nagamine's revealing work is now available in English for the first time. Covering the lives of such greats as Choken Makabe, To-te Sakugawa, Soken Matsumora and many more in vivid detail, Nagamine also presents an explanation of Okinawan history and philosophy, as well as the masters, of the little-known Okinawan grappling art of tegumi. A must-have for all martial arts fans, this classic work includes striking photographs and fascinating anecdotes.

Nagamine Sensei spent a lifetime researching the budoka covered in his book. He trained and/or talked with some of them personally, interviewing the relatives and students of those who have passed on. He artfully portrays the exploits of Tode Sakugawa, Sokon Matsumura, Kosaku Matsumora, Anko Itosu, Gichin Funakoshi, Chotoku Kyan, Choki Motobu, Kanryo Higaonna and Ankichi Arakaki, to name a few, cutting through the fables and exaggerated legends to get to the truth.
The only drawback is that it does not include a glossary or index, so you will probably want to take notes as you peruse it. My copy is battered, dog-eared, and covered with sticky notes. An extraordinary tome, I cannot recommend this book highly enough.
Author of Blinded by the Night, among other titles
While this book is vastly different from his more widely circulated work, "The Essence of Okinawan Karate-do" (which has detailed diagrams of all the Matsubayashi-ryu katas and movements, along with lengthy, incisive explanations), Sensei Nagamine also discusses the heart, or "kokoro", of what he considers to be the foundations of martial arts. He offers insights into how training should be pursued, physically, mentally, and spiritually, as it was passed down from those before him, and the true journey to conquering the forces within. He keeps nothing a secret, and passes his wisdom through many of these stories.
This book is not one that you want to read from beginning to end in one sitting. Many of his insights will be best served to be pondered upon and carefully considered. The chapters do move quickly, since they are quite enjoyable, at turns witty and humble. One can tell that Sensei Nagamine, if he had been born in a different era, may have become an accomplished professor or social scientist as well as a martial artist.
