Originally published in 1962 Karate by Pictures was one of the first illustrated Karate instruction texts. The science of Karate is a unique system of fighting with bare hands and feet in both self-defence and counter-attack. Throughout the years it has been studied intently by numbers of high-ranking experts and students in all parts of the world. It is studied by the Army and Police Authorities in many countries with a view to making their members, in the event of attack, completely proficient in the art of personal self-defence without the use of weapons.

Karate through the empty hand can deal a knockout blow in a flash, yet it is a high-class sport, based upon an ethical concept and if a candidate wants to be equipped one hundred percent for fighting without lethal weapons, then he cannot afford to exclude practical knowledge of Karate from his defensive and offensive repertoire.

With over 250 photos, Henry Pl e goes over the basic stances, punches, kicks and blocks of traditional karate, shows in details the five Heian katas familiar to many who have studied traditional martial arts, and include a series of self-defense combinations that are highly instructive.
