Funakoshi's Karate-Do Kyohan

The Hawaii Karate Museum was very fortunate to recently acquire an historic first edition, in excellent condition, of Karate-Do Kyohan (Karate-Do Master Text), by Gichin Funakoshi. Published 1935 (Showa 10). 302 pages. Japanese language. We understand this to be a first printing of the book!

Karate-Do Kyohan was on our Top 5 list of historic Karate books being sought. Now if we can only acquire Motobu Sensei's two books, and Karate-Do Gaisetsu!Do you have historic Karate books that you would like to donate to the Hawaii Karate Museum? We always list donors with the books (see our Rare Karate Book Collection), and your donation would help to preserve the history and traditions of the art!

It is only May, and we have already acquired a great book (in addition to all the other donations and acquisitions this year)!
