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.

Martial Arts Instruction

Kane, Lawrence A. "Martial Arts Instruction: Applying Educational Theory and Communication Techniques in the Dojo." YMAA. New York. 2004.

Review: So little has been written with any validation on this subject it is criminal and yet this book does a wonderful job of laying out a plan for Sensei, instructors or teachers. Well written and well thought out material. This is a great start point for anyone who want to open a dojo.

You just cannot lose by reading Kane Sensei's book(s) :-)
