"The Advanced Karate Manual" is designed as a companion volume to "Karate-Do Manual". Written for those who have already achieved proficiency in the sport, the book aims to help the reader attain the increasingly high standards of speed, strength and skill required for modern karate competition. The book also looks at advances in training methods and provides a catalogue of exercises and sequences which can be practised with or without a partner. Other sections cover the psychological aspects of training, the use of equipment, the execution of advanced techniques and the nature and role of the karate coach.
