Created by legendary Soke Takayuki Kubota, Gosoku Ryu, which means 'strong' and 'fast', combines the blazing speed that comes from the softness of most Chinese styles with the massive power of Japanese techniques. Soke Kubota also added elements of aikido, judo and jiu-jitsu to create a near-invincible, easily learned martial art that delivers maximum protection on the street and judge-pleasing performances in tournaments. Tak Kubota, head of the International Karate Association, is one of the world's most-treasured martial arts masters and teachers. His Association is represented in 53 countries and his amazing techniques have been taught to more than 800 police departments, agencies and bureaus around the world, including the F.B.I. and the Tokyo and Los Angeles Police Departments. In this groundbreaking book, Soke Kubota shows you in step-by-step fashion why Gosoku Ryu has become the most-widely accepted style of karate in the world.
