Ashihara Karate: Sabaki – the Essential Guide to Mastering the Art Book
Sneak preview of Ashihara Karate: Sabaki – the Essential Guide to Mastering the Art Book by Hoosain Narker (AKI Kaicho) and Erik Petermann (Shihan).
The draft copy of the book – the actual picture shoot is currently being done.
This book contains various chapters featuring aspects that will educate the reader about general karate but more specific the principles and techniques that made Ashihara Karate one of the fastest growing styles in the eighties.
The background of the technique pictures will be cropped out as in the pictures of how to dress into the dogi. The deadline for completing this book will be December 2018. It is our intention to have an accompanying DVD with extra technique.
The clip itself will give you an idea of the contents.
