□ This book is a chronological summary of the history of martial arts, a crystallization of human wisdom that has been passed down from the ancient Mesopotamian civilization through the Silk Road and Marine Road to India, China, and the Ryukyu Islands.

□ The latter half of the book contains information on 100 karate masters from Ryukyu and Okinawa, which will help you understand Okinawan karate more deeply.
This book is the culmination of Tetsuhiro Hokama's work as a Ryukyu historical researcher.

Note : The history of major karate from ancient times to 2000 is described in this book. The original book about 100 Masters was published in 2001. Okinawan famous Masters alive at that time are not included.
This book is a reprint of it.

Note : This book was out of print until today(2021.12.22), but in response to many requests from around the world, we have decided to reprint it with a new cover design. The contents are the same as the original version.

Note : The current stock will be shipped immediately, but depends on the stock, it may take some time due to the need for printing and binding.
Thank you for your understanding.
