Ryusei Technical Manual Translation

The Ryusei Karate-Do Technical manual is currently being translated from Japanese to English by James and Sonoko Hatch, Canadians currently living in Fukoka, Japan. Since the manual contains Sakamoto-Sensei’s advanced training concepts, described in complex kanji, the process of translaton and editing is laborious and slow. Many thanks to James and Sonoko for all their hard work.

The first complete draft of the manual is expected early in 2006. After the copy and layout are fine-tuned, the manual will be packaged with written kata descriptions and a technical DVD, and then sold to Ryusei members.
