In Ancient Okinawan Martial Arts:1 Koryu Uchinadi the Western reader has ready access, for the first time, to an extensive collection of the most important documents written by and about Okinawa's most famous karate and Kobudo masters and their arts, as well as to photographs of Kobujutsu Katas of historical significance.

This two–volume anthology includes previously untranslated texts by Chojun Miyagi (founder of Goju Ryu Karate), Kenwa Mabuni (founder of Shiro R Yu Karate), Shinken Taira (founder of Ryukyu Kobudo), Chos hin Chibana (founder of Kobayas hi Shorin Ryu Karate), and Choki Morobu (the notorious scrapper who in his maturity went on to reach many who became great masters in their own right). Patrick McCarthy–with the able assistance of his wife, Yuriko McCarthy–provides expert translation and commentary based on his extensive research into these masters and the systems they founded, as well as into the establishment of the Okinawan karate tradition in the main islands of Japan.
