By Iain Abernethy, who I have had the pleasure of training with several times & undoubtedly one of the very best at applied Karate.
Unfortunately this book is out of print now so getting a bit expensive, but well worth a read
FROM SHOTOKAN TO THE STREETS
How to make your training fit for real world self protection (not just for sport). Despite the title, I’d recommend it for all styles.

Interview with author Andi Kidd.
This is the only book I’ve ever read cover to cover, then gone back and read a second time straight away. It’s that good. It gives a detailed historical background to the Okinawan Kings bodyguards; looks at what the challenges they faced & what would be their requirements for a fighting system. Then discusses how Shotokan very closely fits that requirement. A real eye opener. Some background at this post on Why Karate Developed Linear Technique.
A very insightful look by a Japanese master, at Karate myths that have been passed down and accepted through the years without really being examined. Refreshingly open and honest.

Interview with author Shihan Kousaku Yokota and
Review of Shotokan Myths
Looks the reality of violence by a man who has faced it many times in the line of duty. And it’s nothing like how most train in the Dojo! A must for anybody interested real self protection.
LOGIC OF VIOLENCE
A detailed look at the different types of violence, which demographic is likely to face which type of violence, the “logic” of how the perpetrator justifies it to themselves & how they select their victims. A real insight into the criminal mind showing you what your up against in the street.
