2nd revised and extended edition of "Die Lehre des Karatedō"
with a new chapter about the history of Karatedō
I just received the latest copy of “Geschichte und Lehre des Karatedo”.
Researched and written by my dear German friend, Heiko Bittmann, a well
known researcher, academic, karate-ka, swordsman and author. Heiko
sensei has resided in Japan for many-many years and become quite an
accomplished Budoka. During 2015-2016 he took a six-month sabbatical in
Okinawa, where he furthered his research into the history of Karate.
The study resulted in adding a brand new chapter to his 2005 book, “The
Teachings of Karatedo,” and publishing a revised and extended edition,
entitled, “Geschichte und Lehre des Karatedo" [“The History and
Teachings of Karatedo”] now available in German.
I found the English edition outstanding and, although I might need to
brush up on my German a tad, from what I read the revised and extended
edition is even more informative.
Highly recommended to any and all German-speaking IRKRS/KU members and
supporters as a book you simply MUST have on your bookshelf if you are
serious about the history and inner-workings of our art.
Herzlichen Glückwunsch Heiko San und viel Glück!
