at university in Japan, to relaxing with friends on the
links of the famed St. Andrew's Golf Club in Scotland,

glimpse into what it was like training, and relaxing,
with a man who dedicated his life to a single goal,
teaching Shotokan Karate.
- Written by a fellow martial
artist, Rod Butler who was himself graded to 4th Dan by
Sensei Enoeda, this book is a must read for any Shotokan
practioner. So add it to your collection, read it more
than once, and in doing so help celebrate the life of an
irreplaceable icon, a valued and respected teacher, a
good friend, a loyal husband, and beloved father.
- While those senior students
with a few years of experience under their belt might
better appreciate some of the subtle comments regarding
what it was like training under Enoeda sensei both in the
dojo and on courses, this book should never the less
still appeal to any Shotokan karateka.
