    Default "Scouting Out The Historical Course Of Karate: Collected Essays" by Henning Wittwer

    Hello and Happy New Year!

    For those of you interested: my first English book on karate’s history and teachings is available now. It contains six essays, which are based on Japanese sources and my original research.

    Because of the publication there will be a discount of 10 percent per book, if you order it directly from lulu.com. The discount is valid until 19th January 2014.

    Hello,

    First of all thank you very much to those of you who purchased a copy already. Please feel free to send me an e-mail if you have questions after reading my book: gibukai[at]gmx.de

    I also opened a little webpage in English, where I will publish news etc. related to the book:

    Because I received a couple of inquiries from German readers, I also would like to add here that “Scouting Out” doesn’t contain any material that is not already published in my three German works.

    Regards,

    Henning Wittwer

    Hello,

    I do not want to open a new theme.

    I am happy to announce that my second English book came out today. Its title is “Funakoshi Gichin & Funakoshi Yoshitaka: Two Karate Masters”. I wrote it as an introduction into the history of karate. Notwithstanding it contains material not published in English before. One part includes my complete translation of a biography of Funakoshi Gichin as well as his son, Funakoshi Yoshitaka, written by one of their students while Funakoshi was still alive.

    The book has 107 pages and 25 historic photos (explained by me).

    You can order it directly from the publisher: https://www.createspace.com/5782478

    Alternatively it is available at amazon: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/151...s=books&sr=1-1
