Product Information

This book covers the fascinating story of the first thirty years of the making of a world-class karate master. Masao Kawasoe was born in Korea in 1945 and, after studying judo, began training in Shotokan under Master Katsunori Tsuyama, in 1960, before successfully grading for his black belt under Minoru Miyata in 1963. Awarded a full karate scholarship to the infamous Takushoku University, upon completion of his degree, Kawasoe was then invited to attend the JKA Instructors Course for a further two years under Masters Nakayama, Kanazawa and Shoji.

Destined to travel, Master Kawasoe became a JKA instructor to Taiwan and then pioneered Shotokan in Madagascar, before settling in Great Britain in 1974.

MASAO KAWASOE, 8th DAN, is a wonderful read by the foremost writer on Shotokan in the world, and describes one man’s dedicated journey along the Shotokan path. Told in the Master’s own words, and accompanied by a large number of historical photographs, the ups and downs of becoming a senior karate instructor are related with both frankness and honesty.

A book on Master Kawasoe is long overdue … and the wait has definitely been worthwhile.
