The Essence of Karate: The Manual for all Karateka
The book is suitable for ...
All Karateka looking for a structured and systematic assistance, which allows a deeper development of their own Karate in all aspects.
It is about getting to know the essentials of Karate and deepening them as well as giving impetus to techniques and training content. Moreover, Karate does not end at the threshold of the Dōjō: the Karate teaching and its principles provide support for all kinds of everyday situations. This allows the Karateka to develop beyond technique.
Part 1: Karate in the Dōjō.
Demonstrating a detailed approach to internalizing the technical content. The focus is on the Karate principles. Once these are mastered, the necessary understanding for the more complex techniques is created, which are deliberately mentioned here only pictorially and textually.
Part 2: Karate in everyday life.
The transfer of the concept and attitude gained in the Dōjō to everyday life. Presentation of principled views, as well as interpretations and extensions that depend on the individual Karateka. These aspects are subject to the subjectivity of the reader.
Part 3: The spiritual teaching.
Various points of view and perceptions on the whole of one's life are considered from the bottom up. The reader gains impulses on his individual path, which can enable him to change his perspective. Until the Karateka finally, with the achievement of a certain maturity, will go his self-chosen Karate way.
Through this three-part structure of the book, a guide is revealed to the reader, which allows him to better understand and internalize the essence of Karate. Ultimately, it serves all Karateka with higher demands and expectations of themselves, who have not yet arrived where they would like to be. At the place where Karate is the link between Dōjō and everyday life and where technique, daily experience and feeling merge into one.
"The Essence of Karate", because ...
Karate is an extensive subject, with many facets. This fascinating martial art can only be fully understood through a combination of reading and Karate practice in the Dōjō. Ultimately, understanding with the intellect as well as the body is crucial. The goal of this book is to present basic techniques and concepts with accuracy and structure as a foundation in Karate.
From the foreword by Dr. med. Jörg-Peter Schröder – Doctor, leadership coach and burnout expert:
"The very detailed description of the basic Karate techniques quickly make it clear that this book has the potential to become a standard work for Karateka. Technically excellent, of precision and execution brilliant and well researched. Very precisely Fiore Tartaglia goes into the techniques and their precise execution. Each drawing is hand painted and therefore truly unique. They express the precision, but also power and dynamics and clarify the techniques and movement sequences.
Fiore is not only concerned with the sporting aspect of the martial art Karate, but also with the mental attitude in the martial art. Especially in an increasingly complex and stressful time, Karate training becomes a real source of energy through intensive occupation.
For me personally, this Karate book is more than just a technical standard work for Karateka. It is much more profound."
Fiore Tartaglia says:
"This book contains over 47 years of Karate knowledge, experience and practice, making it my most valuable work to date."
