"First control yourself before attempting to control others." -- Gichin Funakoshi "The Twenty Precepts of Gichin Funakoshi" distills the lifetime wisdom of the Father of Modern Karate into 20 simple statements. Karate beginners can recite the sayings, but only karate masters really understand them. Vincent Cruz brings almost fifty years of Shotokan experience to the interpretation of Funakoshi's famous maxims. His profound knowledge and deep sensitivity make Funakoshi's words spring to life with newly-revealed wisdom and insight. "The Twenty Precepts of Gichin Funakoshi" describes not only karate, but also life itself. Nurture your spirit on the harmonious wisdom of two great masters.
