What readers are saying about Katsujinken . . .

"Wow!  Katsujinken does for karate what Flashing Steel did for iaidō.  It makes the deeper principles of the art understandable and relevant to Western readers ..." (Michael Scranton)

"No other authors have the dept of knowledge and the ability to express that knowledge on paper like Shimabukuro Sensei and Pellman Sensei.  They've outdone themselves with this book!" (Rocky Stone)

"I've read practically every book there is on karate and there is simply NOTHING that comes close to this book in the way that they explain the philosophy, the technique, and how to apply them to your everyday life.  You could study it for years and not get everything out of it that the authors have put into it.  It's just amazing." (John Mills)

"These guys are unbelievable, man!.  Not only did they write a great book, but they'll make the time to help you understand it and use it.  I emailed Pellman Sensei a question and he got right back to me about it.  Who else would do that??? " (Maurice Freeman)
