Rate this:
When creating karate kata, the Okiniwan masters included deadly techniques targeting vital points. But they kept these techniques secret from outsiders, and when karate was exported to Japan, it appears they chose not to pass on their full knowledge of vital-point striking. Here Ashley Croft demystifies this hidden corner of the art and explores its practical application. This book offers historical perspectives on the evolution of karate, the possible intentions of the ancient masters, and the development of vital-point striking, as well as the location and description of the pressure points, and the practical application of pressure-point strikes.
