This is one of the most complete collection of jujitsu katas ever presented in one volume. From among the hundreds of styles of jujitsu practiced in Japan during the past century, Bruce Tegner has selected and adapted routines which are appropriate for developing and maintaining physical fitness, flexibility and agility. The katas are excellent for self-improvements and self-expression through body awareness and body movement. Martial arts enthusiasts, physical education teachers and librarians will find valuable instructional and reference material in this book. Bruce Tegner is a specialist in sport and self-defense forms of the martial arts. He is regarded as one of the world's outstanding authorities and innovators in the subject field. He was born in Chicago, Ilinois in 1929. Both his parents were professional teachers of judo and jujitsu, and they began his formal instruction when he was two years old! In a field where most individuals study only one specialty, Bruce Tegner's background is unusual. His education covered many aspects of weaponless fighting as well as sword and stick techniques. At the age of twenty-one, after he had become California state judo champion, he gave up competition to devote himself completely to research, writing and teacher-training. In the U.S. armed forces, Mr. Tegner trained instructors to teach unarmed combat, he taught miltary police tactics and he coached sport judo teams. He has trained actors and devised fight scenes for films and television. From 1952 to 1967 he operated his own school in Hollywood, California where he taught men, women and children, exceptionally gifted students and blind and disabled persons. He has devised many special courses, among them self-defense courses taught in physical education classes. Bruce Tegner has many books in print in his subject field; they range from basic, practical self-defense to exotic forms of fighting for experts and enthusiasts. They are used in private and public schools in recreation centers, by law enforcement agencies and by individuals throughout the world. Editions of Tegner titles have been published in French, German, Spanish, Portuguese, and Dutch.
