Recommends it for: every karateka/martial arts practitioner
Bagi para praktisi karate (khususnya aliran Goju-ryu/Uechi-ryu), buku ini memaparkan sejarah, bukti, serta analisis teknik yang menyimpulkan bahwa Okinawa-te (karate) banyak mengadopsi teknik dan Kata dari aliran kungfu ini. Penjelasan Samchien (Sanchin Kata) di buku ini sangat gamblang, dengan penjelasan pengaliran chi ke seluruh tubuh. Buku ini saya dapatkan di Pesta Buku Jakarta 2008 dengan harga Rp5000 di stand Periplus Bookstore.
