The Weaponless Warriors by Richard Kim is one of the most coveted books on the martial arts. After being out of print for many years it is back in circulation. Kim is a talented story teller, as many of his students will attest to, as well as a Judo and Karate black belt, and teacher of Shorinji-ryu Kenpo. The Weaponless Warriors explores the history of Okinawan Karate and its growth, told through vignettes about its most famous practitioners. Kim obviously did his research and included rare photographs of the earliest pioneers of Naha-te, the empty-hand style of self-defense. An entertaining read, with lots of info on all the great Karate Masters of the past, Kim also manages to teach the reader some lessons. The Weaponless Warriors is an essential addition to any martial artists library.
