This excellent work, with more than 800 photos for ease of use, is designed to help students get the most out of the study and training of the five essential Pi Nan kata. Tomiyama Sensei, one of the leading Shito Ryu instructors in the world, not only demonstrates the katas, advising on performance and underlying principles, but also brings together sets of “bunkai” (applications) to aid understanding of the content. It is through the practice of Pi Nan katas and the many and varied applications that practitioners at all levels get a solid foundation for a meaningful study of the art of Karate. This comprehensive work is an indispensable tool for students and teachers alike.
