Originating in J apan and influenced by Okinawan fighting systems, the art has evolved into one that ip.corporates karate-like kicks, punches, and strikes, as well as the throwing, grappling, and joint techniques of judo. Thus, Shin Kage Ryu is a complete fighting system, one that combines the best elements of karate with those of jujutsu. ---The unique mix of disciplines in Shin Kage Ryu makes it possible to fight with an opponent in an upright position and, if necessary, take him to the ground and score a victory by grappling or choking. Students are also taught extensive attack and defense techniques with both the sword and knife. --Author of the successful Karate Training: The Samurai Legacy and Modern Practice, Robin L. Rielly has written this book as an introduction to Shin Kage Ryu for those unfamiliar with it, and to insure that the knowledge of this fighting art is not lost. It remains a pure martial art, and because it is not practiced in sporting contests, its kata are often closer to real combat. Although in some ways similar to karate kata, advanced black belts in karate agree that the kata of Shin Kage Ryu have a different feeling-one that is both powerful and effective. As such, this book is an essential handbook for every karate practitioner and enthusiast."---, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo ///NOT SIGNED ---GUARANTEED to be AVAILABLE///
