Uchi Deshi in America is not Shakespeare; however it is a good description of one young man's journey to America and subsequent training as an Uchi Deshi (basically a live in student). I enjoyed this very much and is a nice addition to any martial artists collection of books. Saiko-Shihan Y. Oyama has done an excellent job writing this book in a style that martial artists as well as non martial artists can understand by reading it. This is a "human story" that everyone can relate to on some level. I had the great priviledge and opportunity to train numerous times in Kyokushin Karate under this top Instructor in the early 1970's.

Saiko-Shihan Oyama's writing style is alot like his teaching style, very passionate and intense. He captures the attention and the imagination of his readers and doesn't let go until you finish the entire book. I highly recommend this book as essential reading for all true martial artists who can get a glimpse of what Uchi-Deshi (Live in Students who train fulltime)from reading this inspiring story. The true meaning of the Japanese martial arts is often misunderstood here in America

He taught Kyokushin karate for many years before forming his own organization World Oyama Karate in 1985. He was hand-picked by Mas Oyama, karate master and founder of Kyokushin karate, to spread his contact style of karate in the United States and was sent to New York City to teach in 1966.

In every meeting with Ishi shihan I was trying to understand something about sosai Oyama. Once I asked him if the bull fights, the 300 kummite and the mountain trainings were for real

A fun read: nothing more and nothing less. Sort of a backward tale in that a Japanese boy travels to America to get a taste of "real" karate. A real bit of "mind candy" that any reader should enjoy.

There are so many martial arts books that glorify and adorn the practice of martial arts as to give the practitioner "super-human" powers. This book instead presents the hard facts and real mental and physical challenges that a martial artist may face by putting you in the story of one young man who journeyed this path. This book portrays the hard work that leads to a knowledge and confidence that can only be known by going thru it. It is a process and journey that first breaks a person down and rebuilds them stronger and more focused and much more in touch with themselves.

This book is very insightful and heart warming. It is well written by a famous martial arts master and his student. I believe it to be a valuable read for anyone interested in martial arts. The lessons learned can change your life.

A Recommended Read.

I have long wished that a book such as this one would be released in English. Saiko-Shihan Y. Oyama has done an excellent job writing this book in a style that martial artists as well as non martial artists can understand by reading it. This is a "human story" that everyone can relate to on some level. I had the great priviledge and opportunity to train numerous times in Kyokushin Karate under this top Instructor in the early 1970's. I was a direct student of his older brother, Soshu S. Oyama, the best student of the legendary Grand Master Mas. Oyama(no relation), the late founder of Kyokushin Karate. Saiko-Shihan Y. would visit the Dojo of Soshu S. Oyama and teach there as a special guest instructor on numerous occasions, as well as at the annual Summer training camp in upstate Massachusetts. His dynamic and unique teaching style is extraordinary and he was deemed "the best technician
in Kyokushin history" due to his flawless and precise techniques. I often thought about how lucky I was to be taught by the best instructors in the World at the time. I cherish the times I trained then and now share them with my own students. My 8 year old son is now training and he is greatly inspired by these traditional instructors, as well as this book. Saiko-Shihan Oyama's writing style is alot like his teaching style, very passionate and intense. He captures the attention and the imagination of his readers and doesn't let go until you finish the entire book. I highly recommend this book as essential reading for all true martial artists who can get a glimpse of what Uchi-Deshi (Live in Students who train fulltime)from reading this inspiring story. The true meaning of the Japanese martial arts is often misunderstood here in America. The beauty of this book is that it clears up alot of misconceptions and inaccuracies as it pertains to genuine Japanese martial arts. I hope that Saiko-Shihan Y. Oyama will release more books in the future relating the martial arts experience and philosophy. If this book is an indication of more to come, we are truly in for a treat. OSU!

Being a Martial Artist for decades myself this book hits home to the life as an Uchi Deshi. This real karate as seen close up and personal as can be. The story dipicts the rigors of what we call a "White Belt". Beginner's starting any Martial Arts has much to learn and when someone comes from his home country to a strange land,new customs it seems at times insurmountable and overwheming. I recommend this book to beginner's and veteran's as to what its like to perservere, train, and become a Champion. I also like when the good guy gets the girl at the end.

The story is real. From the first paragraph to the very end, the writer takes you into a world that is often misunderstood and distorted by fantasy. The book delivers a powerful story about the opportunity a young man has to overcome disappointment in his life and become a champion. You won't read about "how to do it" karate techniques in this book but you will read about dedication, perserverance and winning...the qualities of a champion. A good read to the very last page.
A nice little book it brings back a lot of memories if you trained in the old days. If you like karate I think you will enjoy this book. If you train in a Mc Dojo you probably wont//////
