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. Approx. 300 photos "So full of functional information, you will have to read it several times!"
