    Default 'Steady Training' by Antonio Bustillo

    Steady Training describes the lessons, experiences and perspectives of a martial artist.

    The story describes 30 years of training with eminent instructors offering insight on the 'old school' mindset; the outlook led to the approach of noncommercial, practical, combat effective methods.

    The narrative points out little known key historical information
    and includes stories of dangerous hard-earned lessons while working as a police officer. In addition, firsthand accounts of real-life streetfights.

    Different styles and instructors receive noteworthy mention.

    Highlighted are:

    *Tomosaburo Okano and Kenkojuku Shotokan.

    *Three of Okano's top men; T.Akuzawa, Toyotaro Miyazaki, K.Sugimoto.

    *Ken Ogawa (Goju) a fierce fighter from Morio Higaonna's Yoyogi dojo.

    *1979 AAU Nationals

    *Ryobukai, Kiyoshi Yamazaki

    *Kyokushinkai, Ashihara Karate, Enshin. The Sabaki Challenge.

    *Chapter on South American dojos

    *Police Academy self-defense training

    *Police Patrol, City of Miami

    *Self-defense street encounters.

    Regardless of rank, or time training, martial artist will relate to many of the stories.

    Default Real Training

    Having had the opportunity to train with Tony Bustillo, I can tell you that he believes in a "no nonsense" approach to budo. The old timers at my dojo fondly remember that it was one of the few times that we visited another school and they gave us something to think about. Tony Bustillo is an authentic karateka.
