172 pages (complete). Signed by Tetsuhiro Sensei in Japanese and English on the frontispage (dated: 2008 July 19). A VERY RARE copy (most especially a signed copy) of this much-sought after history of Karate. A reviewer wrote: "Hokama Tetsuhiro Sensei is the Founder and Curator of the Okinawa Karate Museum (opened in 1987), a senior Goju instructor, holds a PhD in Physical Education and is a man of many accomplishments in Okinawa. From many requests for information he received over the years he decided to compile a Karate Timeline, from the sources at his command. He is also the author of ?100 Masters of Okinawan Karate?, also translated by Joe Swift. The Timeline of Karate History is a very detailed listing of the Okinawa?s public record of karate history, events and publications. Far less information pre-WWII, and far greater depth decade by decade after WWII. There are very few books available from the Okinawan?s in English. To hear karate?s history from their vantage is priceless, if you have an interest in what happened when on Okinawa. If you really want to see the scope of things that have happened in Okinawa from the public record, this book is invaluable." This copy has been carefully owned. The covers have some light wear to the spine seams and edges. They are otherwise sound and contented. The contents are in very good condition. The pages are devoted, dutiful, diligent, clean, clear and very certain. fk. Our orders are shipped using tracked courier delivery services.
