The Story of Karate Nakasone Genwa

  • Compared to his other books about Karate which involved collaboration with Mabuni Kewna, 'The Story of Karate' was entirely written by Nakasone himself. Published in may of 1939, it is a less a of book and more of a pamphlet advertising 'An Introduction to Offensive and Defensive Unarmed Karate' which would be published the following year with Mabuni Kenwa. At the same time, it serves as a basic introduction and advertisement for the new art of Karate-do on the Japanese mainland. (37 pages).
