Kyokushin Kata book SOLD OUT! - look out for 2nd edition soon

From Beginner to Black Belt” by Hanshi John Taylor, hachidan

A Kyokushin Karate manual with over 100 pages of Kata with complete and detailed explanations, including the correct count for Kyokushin Kata. A comprehensive book that takes a student from "Beginner to Black Belt".

Mas Oyama said that one should "think of karate as a language – the kihon (basics) can be thought of as the letters of the alphabet, the kata (forms) will be the equivalent of words and sentences, and the kumite (fighting) will be analogous to conversations."


The book is so complete, that I am mandating that all students have their very own copy. My adult classes now have the materials they need to keep them on track. As for my kids programs, parents have commented to me how much they themselves have learned though helping their children with terminology and the kata. I wish this had been around when I was coming up through the Kyu rankings.
Congratulations on a job well done!
Kind Regards,
Shihan Martin R. Petrovich - USA

Shihan Taylor's kata manual is a long over-due book that every Kyokushin instructor and student should own and use to compliment any serious training for kata. The illustrations are easy to follow along with the accurate explanations and terminology. It is the first and only concise book on Kyokushin kata that also emphasizes a count for each movement. Every dojo should have at least one manual at its disposal. It is the best kata training guide available.
Best regards.
Sensei John Kalaidopoulos - West Island dojo - Canada

I have found Shihan Taylor’s kata book to be an immense benefit to my teaching. As a ready reference for technique and the count it is invaluable and my dojo operators and members have all commented on how good it is. I thoroughly recommend this book to all students of Kyokushin. Matsushima and we are very lucky to have it.
Shihan Gary Viccars - Australia.

I believe that Shihan John Taylor's Kata Manuals are a unique tool to standardise Kata throughout IKO Matsushima, plus it can be used as a way of retention for our students with its turn key approach to learning 'Kyokushin Karate Kata' and 'Kyokushin Karate terminology'.
Sensei Duayne Davies - New Zealand.

This Kata book is something that we have been looking for some time, now have a book that will standardise everyone's kata, through the use of the drawings and the detailed explanations for each kata.
Shihan Tony Bowden - Australia
