In most schools of karate, one-step sparring is taught as a gradual introduction to freestyle sparring. In reality, freestyle has very little in common with one-step sparring and less with self-defense. The Okinawan masters knew that one-step sparring was the way to apply what was learned in kata. Now you can learn what the masters knew! By varying your one-step sparring practice you learn to react to unexpected attacks. Adjusted and varied one-step sparring creates an ascending hierarchy to the more realistic drills of SAD (Sudden Attack Defense) and CAD (Combat Attack Defense). This book is about that ascension.
