Over the past couple of weeks, I have been reading a book by Ralph Robb, entitled Memoirs of a Karate Fighter. It is an exceptional, inspirational and moving book which gives account of Mr Robbs experiences whilst training at the famous YMCA Karate dojo in Wolverhampton, UK during the 1980’s.
The book is a must for anyone who is interested in hearing about how karate training and competition was like during this period in time. For those who have trained with Wado Ryu karate ka in England in the 1970/80’s it should be of exceptional interest as names like Toru Takamizawa, Tatsuo Suzuki and many others crop up allowing for a good read.
