This is a unique opportunity to have Hanshi Kaufman come into your school and deliver a full-blown seminar that will leave your students breathless … and dangerous. The four or six-hour seminar is open to all ages and genders, with or without martial arts experience. All attendees receive a signed copy of the book. Photos and taping will be ALLOWED.
Hanshi Kaufman’s Guide to Ultimate Self-defense is based on Musashi’s Book of Five Rings, which has sold over 1,500,000 copies world-wide. Hanshi’s book has influenced countless martial artists for almost a quarter of a century and is destined to have a lasting impact for many years to come.
The book is completely unillustrated, and here’s why! A picture may be worth 1000 words, but a well-placed exemplary word, well positioned, and expertly defined, eliminates the need for a picture when it represents an abstract idea, rather than a concrete representation that can be misunderstood. While pictures can and do, in some instances, illustrate a particular idea, keep in mind that in the earliest stages of development, words are the manner of communicating ideas from the purest source of mental development. A great deal of thought has gone into this non-illustrated approach and agreed to by many of the world’s leading experts in martialist training. You do not need a picture of what a foreknuckle is. You do not need a picture of what a knee is or, for that matter, what a jab into someone’s eyes with your fingers is. You know that intuitively, instinctively, and just from being aware of the different parts of your body. Pictures, in many instances, limit the ability of the imagination to define its own reality. Incorrect assumptions of how to do a specific thing are restricting because, in many instances, the person looking at the picture will try to imitate the action according to what they see and not according to how they physically should act. This book will change your entire perspective on the subject presented to you for your own desired level of mastery. It will force you think and, in that manner, you will become that much more effective and efficient, and secure. Read the book, study the method, and you will understand. You will also become extraordinarily proficient.
