Shu-Ha-Ri: My Life in Japanese Karate

“This Book is a must-read for IKD, ISKF and JKA karate-ka. Learn not only the story of Shihan Woon-A-Tai’s life but the history of Karate in Guyana, Jamaica, Canada and worldwide for the last 50 years.”


“Sensei Woon-A- Tai, with his great skill, his wealth of knowledge, and his great sense of humour, provided all we were looking for…I continue to marvel at his amazing ability as a teacher to move with the times. He remains as relevant now in the 21st Century, as he was back in the seventies.”
