Recommended reading for the martial arts. This is my personal library list. I practice Okinawan Te or "Ryukyu Ti." My system is derived from two others, one being the main influence of Shorin-ryu and the second Goju-ryu. The branch under Shorin-ryu is Isshin-ryu as developed by Shimabuku Tatsuo Sensei.

I wanted to create a library reference blog where I can provide a listing of the books I have in my library, present and past (past in that some have been lost in transit over the years). I will provide a graphic, if available, a short description, if available, and the bibliography. When possible a link to Amazon will be provided.

Etiquette Guide to Japan

DeMente, Boye Lafayette. "Etiquette Guide to Japan: Know the Rules that make the Difference." Tuttle. Vermont. 2008, 2009.

Review: Another well written book by the author of the kata book of understanding Japan. I felt this one supplemented the other and contributed to my continuing understanding of the cultures that bred karate.
