This is an excellent book, all Shotokan practitioners should read. It's about indomitable spirit. I know and met Kagawa Shihan at Yokota AB Japan, In Fussa-shi Karate class. My Sensei Aoki and Shibuya exposed him to Americans practicing Shotokan. To me, he was a serious Karateka with good technique. If he trained with Shibuya Shihan, it was spirit forgeing hard core. training of Kihon-Kata and Kumite. The book is excellent. Please forward this to him.
