  1. Hi Bob

    I think the book you’re after is Shotokan Myths. Here’s the link to the posting:

    As for Shotokan’s Secrets, I think you’ll love it. It’s the only book I’ve ever read right through twice and it changed a lot of my perspectives.

    Best Regards

    Hi Charlie,

    A while back you posted about a book on Shotokan. What was the title? I need to add it to my reading list. FYI I just ordered “Shotokan’s Secrets.” I don’t think that was the book you referred to.
