BKC Demonstration

I initially posted this video on Facebook (doesn’t look like I can point to my status and it’s comments from here?), and received some comments to which I needed to reply in some detail. However, Facebook restricts the amount I can type in a comment box, so reproducing it here.

See post comments. FYI it’s a demonstration by my grandmaster, founder of BKC.

Hoosain Narker’s “My Karate Odyssey” Travelogue

Filed under: martial arts,philosophy — Tags: , , , , — Kamal Advani @ 02:22

Back when I was a toddler (well not quite that young), a few influential people influenced me (coz that’s what influential people do…) and made me stick to practicing Karate. Hoosain Narker, a master of the Ashihara style was one of these people. He has written a wonderful travelogue, full of fascinating tales, and more importantly life tenets that he’s learnt and lived through his several decades of of training. I highly recommend his book, for martial artists and non-martial artists alike.
