"One of the early pioneers of Matsubayashi Shorin Ryu in America, Hanshi Frank Grant, has given us this valuable book containing the lessons passed down from Grandmaster Shoshin Nagamine. As one of the last old-timers, I highly recommend this book to present and future generations who not only study the technique of Matsubayashi but also its history and traditions."
"Jerry Figgiani, President,
Shorin Ryu Karatedo International
" "I feel that this book is a great resource, not only to those who know the connection between Matsubayashi Shorin-Ryu and Motobu-ha Shito-Ryu, but to all martial artists who wish to further their insight into the transition moves within kata." "
Kevin Gurganus, Carolina Martial Arts Center
6th Dan - Motobu-ha Shito-Ryu, Kunibakai International;

22.Supplemental Training
There are many levels of karate. During my first six-month training visit I asked the Master, "When do you know it all?" His response was "How long is infinity?" One advances in rank, skills and knowledge; building on the lessons and insights learned previously. The techniques that I teach my Shodans and Nidans would be totally lost on someone of an intermediate rank. At the same time, those black belts are not yet in a position to absorb the techniques I teach my Sandans and above. The Master helped me achieve very high levels of knowledge, but more importantly, he taught me how to continue to gain more from our techniques while remaining true to the kata he assembled and molded for us. The Master personally taught me details to techniques that he purposely did not put in his book because he knew that the majority of the readers may not comprehend. As part of my promise to the Master to take Matsubayashi-Ryu to the Next Step, I am sharing many of those details with you. Those little nuances are directly related to the training I received from the Master.
