I’m going to try something I’ve never done before.
Right here, right now.
A FREE eBook.
And NOT just ANY eBook!
This is something out of the ordinary!
Actually, it’s a world-exclusive.
That’s right – the super distilled Karate info contained in this eBook has never been publicly revealed like this before. And, as if that’s not enough, it features pretty me alongside world-famous Karate historian/researcher Patrick McCarthy – in fact, this eBook has been in the making for roughly three months! That’s how long it takes to dwell into the dephts of the evolution of Karate in general, and the Matsuyama Theory in particular.
“The Matsuyama what-now?” I hear you asking.
And that’s precisely why you really need to read this eBook right now.
Because nothing I write here can possibly compare to actually reading the darn thing for yourself.
I mean, just when you thought the history of Karate was way too complex to even understand – along comes the Matsuyama Theory and fills in the holes. Amazing.
We, meaning me and sensei McCarthy, truly hope that you guys will enjoy this eBook immensely and pass it on to as many Karate enthusiasts as possible. Sharing is caring.
By the way, why did I make this into an eBook and not a “regular” article?
Well, simply because fitting 7000 words into this blog would be a pain in the a$$. It’s like 34 friggin’ pages!
Also, I had taken tons of actual photos in the actual Matsuyama Park (during my visit to Okinawa earlier this year) and I really wanted to show off my mad Photoshop skills (you’ll see once you read it) in the illustrations. I hope you enjoy them.
Lastly, apart from being “just” an eBook, this is my personal tribute to hanshi McCarthy (who I’ve known almost exactly half of my life, for the record). His work, spanning from books like the The Bible of Karate: Bubishi (although his translation and compilation of Choki Motobu’s ‘Watashi no Karate-jutsu’ is my personal favorite) to his bunkai-jutsu, truly provided a breeding ground for a lot of my initial ideas; particularly on bunkai, history, self-defense, Japanese culture and other “thinking outside of the box”-Karate stuff.
So if you thought that I was a Karate Nerd™, well, you’d better check out sensei McCarthy in this free eBook.
Let’s get to business.
(Well, giving something away for $0.00 isn’t really business, but still.)
Below you’ll find the exclusive download for the (now probably over-hyped) KbJ ‘Matsuyama Theory’ eBook (.pdf format). It’s totally FREE for you to read, share and enjoy – and we truly hope it will be of great awesomeness to you and everyone you share it with.
Hopefully, it will provide a couple of “blinding glimpses of the obvious” for everyone interested!
This one’s on the house!
