New Uechi-Ryu Book in Frence by Shimabukuro Sensei

uechi ryu shimabukuro bookThe first book in French on Uechi-Ryu Karate-Do is finally released. Directed end edited by by Yukinobu Shimabukuro Sensei, 9th dan Uechi-ryu shubukan, Uechi-ryu representative in Europe by the Uechi-ryu Soke Association (Shubukan).

The book includes chapters like the history of Uechi-Ryu Karate, Shimabukuro Sensei's personal stories and experiences on spreading Karate, especially in France. The book also includes a lot of cultural information about karate and Okinawa (explanations of other schools / lines of karate, the geography of Okinawa, etc ...). Moreover the book contains all Uechi-Ryu Kata in detail, picture by picture, with Japanese terminology for techniques, postures and moves, and glossary with translations.

Although we didn't have the chance of a hands-on experience yet, this book looks definitely significant and is highly recommended to any reader interested in Okinawan culture, Karate and Uechi-Ryu style. Hope we see an English translation in the future.

The book is available throuth http://www.uechi-ryu.eu/ for order at the price of 35€ (30€ the book + 5€ shipping costs).
