Product Information

From the investigation summarized in this book I put forward new theories about the origins and historical developements of kata, the formal exercises of Karate,
trasmitted in the Shōtōkan school of Tōkyō by the Funakoshi family. "The Shōtōkan Stylistic System" contains the result of research, supported by the Grand Master Paolo
Bolaffio, wich lasted almost two decades. With him, I would like to make you apart of my discoveries, reveal the original names, key features and Chinese styles from which
the kata of the Shōtōkan and Shōtōkai style orignate, but are also present in the Wadō-ryū, Shitō-ryū, Shōrin-ryū styles, and partly originate from the Gōju-ryū.
