Customer Rating: Summary: Master Uezu and Sensei Joe Jennings Isshin Ryu Comment: Book I Beginner to green belt. Awesome book. History, terminology, basics,
katas, applications. Great descriptions, great pict's (though follow the arrows) A must for beginner's.( No bo kata's.) Recommend highly! Customer Rating: Summary: Get this one if you can Comment: I know the availability is limited on this one, but get it if you can. I bought this book 17 years ago and still look at it from time to time. There is a lot of informtion in this book. I wrote to Master Uezu asking him if he was going to finish the other volumes and the answer was no. This is our only record of the Uezu/Jennings collaboration and it should be treasured.
Bryan Winkelman (www.senseibryan.com) - Author of "Training Manual for Isshin Ryu Karate" the follow on to this masterpiece and listed on Amazon.com Customer Rating: Summary: Encyclopedia of Isshin ryu karate Comment: I purchased this book for myself from e-bay. It is an excellent book for Isshinryu students. The history and philosophy are invaluable. I would not recomend this book for non Isshinryu (or non martial arts) people.
