THE TWENTY GUIDING PRINCIPLES OF KARATE PDF

Diverse , My library Master Gichin Funakoshi in his quest to guide the karate practitioner has left us a collection of 20 precepts to apply daily. All karateka must follow its basic principles which are just as important if not more than the practice itself. Each of these precepts is very short and of a philosophical nature which tends of course to various interpretations. The translation that I put below is only the result of my readings and my personal interpretation. I do not pretend to hold the truth and each precept can probably find other explanations, but I try to write with my heart and my mind to, in my opinion, stick to the right to the will of the Master. Respect is an essential virtue in karate, as in life.

Yes it is a book that I will read and read The twenty guiding principles is n great little book for all karateka who want to advance their karate. Yes it is a book that I will read and read again and again. Funakoshi-Sensei was the father of Shotokan karate and the man who may have been more responsible for its growth and spread than any other.

He was also always of the opinion that the ultimate aim of karate lies not in victory or defeat, but in the perfection of the character of its participants.

This book is far more about character than anything else and the principles themselves are designed to stress mental and spiritual development rather than strength and technique. The principles were never designed to be mere axioms, but introductions to lessons to be expanded upon by teacher to student.

The book takes the 20 principles and gives a little space to each to expand the point being stressed and give the reader a direction and ideas to chew on. And this particular edition is brought into English from a Japanese edition approved by Funakoshi himself. Somehow, that makes me take it just a touch more seriously. If the master approved of the message then it should be easier to consider his intent with each principle. I attempted to limit myself to one or two principles per day, giving myself the leisure to let the concepts roll around in my mind and see what I can take from them.

The lessons may take different meanings at different times, though. Overall rating: 5 stars. But it will probably also be a frequent reference point in between. That answer might change tomorrow, but I think it will always be a relevant reminder.
