Fulvio Zilioli, Karate Uechi Ryu - Storia, Tecnica, filosofia



Sensei Fulvio Zilioli is the author of the first Italian book about Uechi Ryu Karate. We had the chance and honour to receive the book by Zilioli Sensei last week. In terms of content, it is all in Italian, but it still has tons of informative pictures in an overall high quality print at an excellent price. As we were informed, an English translation of the book is on the way. We are looking forward to it as well. 

The content is organized in 23 chapters and 245 pages covering all the vital aspects of Uechi Ryu Karate. Jubi Undo, Uke, Kamae, Kitae, Sanchin Kata are only few of the topics covered by the book.


The book can be ordered through the publisher's web store or Amazon Italy
