In Funakoshi's Footsteps is a unique work and gives an honest, refreshing evaluation and insight into the 'not so idealistic world of Shotokan Karate', as seen through the eyes of a prominent British teacher. It 'pulls no punches' and exposes the myths surrounding many Japanese and British instructors, and offers a wealth of invaluable metaphors contained in more than two hundred individual stories. Above all, John's autobiography is filled with realism. Mistakes, (and there are plenty of those), humour, tragedy, compassion, romance, heartache and encounters and experiences with what resembles a 'Who's Who' of Japanese and English instructors since the death of Master Funakoshi.

Oh my god! I am so glad I did not buy this book! I was able to read it for free with my Kindle Unlimited. With all of the typos, and all of the misplaced photos, and the photo information just dropped into the middle of a paragraph randomly. Sometimes while you're reading it just stops in mid-sentence and then goes to a completely different subject and you have no idea where it's going so you just have to pick up wherever it is and keep going. The story is entertaining but the editing honored is so deplorable it wasn't worth the read. I mean who spells Judo (Jud?) ? Or Shotokan Sh?t?kan?

i trained with john van weenen from 1970 to 1973 while stationed at RAF Chicksands Bedfordshire England with the US Air Force. He is a true non-oriental karate master and a genuine humanitarian and he exemplifies thr true spirit of karate-do. His story is facinating, humorous and an inspiring read for both students and non-students of karate.
