About

funakoshi2

Classical Karate & Jujutsu magazine is aimed purely at the traditional martial arts.

With emphasis on the arts of Karate Jutsu and Nihon Jujutsu we will also be featuring arts like Aikido, Kung Fu, Kobudo and Kendo.

In the first month we have had guest submissions from the likes of Steve Rowe (8th Dan Karate and practitioner of Iaido and Yang style Tai Chi) and Paul Masters (Menkyo Kaiden, Tenjin Shinyo Ryu).

Readers can easily navigate round the site with stories catalogued by month, by the masters, styles and kata they feature.
