If you ever wondered what the link is between the tea ceremony and martial arts, the notion of kata will bring you the answer.
Considered at once a philosophy, a teaching and a technique, the katas throw light on all steps leading to perfection.
Through historical and concrete examples but also through his personal experiences in karate, Kenji Tokitsu closes on this fundamental Japanese notion of the ever-present conciliation between traditions and modernity.
Master in martial arts and specialized in saber techniques, founder of the Tokitsu Ryu school, Kenji Tokitsu gives here a profound reflection on the subject.
He is the author of Budo, le ki et le sens du combat (Editions Desiris, 2000) and Miyamoto Musashi maitre de sabre (Editions Desiris, 2000) both published in the US by Shambhala.
