"Keith Yates has written one of the most complete overviews of American karate that I’ve seen. Not only is it comprehensive, it’s fun to read."
—Skipper Mullins, world karate champion; one of Black Belt Magazine‘s Top Five Fighters of All Time
"Tae kwon do has enhanced my life. It has given me confidence, helped me stay fit, taught me how to achieve goals, and helped me become comfortable in my interactions with others. This book will help you stick with your training so you can gain those benefits too."
