The Ryusei Karate-Do Technical manual is currently
being translated from Japanese to English by James
and Sonoko Hatch, Canadians currently living in Fukoka,
Since the manual contains Sakamoto-Sensei's advanced
described in complex kanji, the process of translaton
and editing is laborious and slow. Many thanks to James
and Sonoko for all their hard work.
The first complete draft of the manual
is expected early in 2006. After the copy
and layout are fine-tuned, the manual will be packaged
with written kata descriptions and a technical DVD,
and then sold to Ryusei members.
