In the preface of this book,Shinkin Gima-10th dan- says,"Considering his technical mastery and his moral values,I am fully convinced that the present work,Karatedo Kumite Kyohan,a product of the long practical experience of Mr.Kanazawa,will contribute greatly to the progress and development of Karatedo.Also,I offer my keen recommendation as a nonagenarian Karatekata,by right,one of the most senior of the Shotokan school,on behalf of the Funakoshi Gichin shihan."
About Shotokan (松涛館 Sh?t?kan), literally, the house of pine waves, is a school of karate, developed from various martial arts by master Gichin Funakoshi (1868-1957) and his son Yoshitaka. Funakoshi was the man who 'officially' brought karate from Okinawa to mainland Japan, although Kenwa Mabuni, Motobu Choki and other Okinawans were actively teaching karate in Japan prior to this point. "Shoto" was the pen name Funakoshi used in his poetry, which means "pine waves" (pg. 85), while "kan" means house. Hence "shotokan" was the name of the hall where he trained his students.
