In this book, Kenji Ushiro, who is 8th dan Kyoshi of Shindo-ryu introduces the five kata of traditional Okinawan Shindo-ryu Karate as well as the accompanying basic training methods and the process for adapting the kata into forms. He also describes important principles neccessary for developing usable karate techniques. The Bunkai Kumite, especially, which are concrete methods for adapting the kata into forms, are considered important as instruments for understanding the meaning of the techniques of the kata as well as a way to verify their effectiveness through offensive and defensive exercises with a partner. Shindo-ryu Karate is the legacy of the essence of traditional Okinawan Karate. Historically speaking, Okinawa chose the path of peace by declaring the elimination of weapons in order to unite the nation during the reign of King Shohashi of the Sho dynasty about 600 years ago at which time the country was divided into three kingdoms: Hokuzan, Chuzan, and Nanzan.
