This detailed overview takes the user from beginner to Black Belt within a style of Jujitsu known as Danzan Ryu Zenyo Bujutsu. Its descriptions are accompanied by several in person photos of the techniques completing the view at any stage. The author includes variations and transitions for some of the techniques for even further clarity on the topic. Basic massage, though not often discussed in other formats, is demonstrated in a chapter toward the end of the book. The added personal insights and wisdom make this manual engaging and friendly while also very complete.

Martial Arts Kata and Beyond(MAKB) by Prof Karnes is a manual of Dan Zan Ryu (DZR) and DZR Zenyo Bujitsu styles of Jujitsu. The book consists of detailed descriptions and photos of all DZR techniques upto and including Shinnin arts. It also has chapters on Rolls/falls, Yasu nage (Low impact arts), restorative massage, Kappo, Honbo and womens self defence techniques.
The book draws on Prof Karnes extensive experience in the field of Jujitsu, massage and self defence spanning more than forty years.
The book is very well written and the text and drawings allow for an easy to follow and yet detailed description of the arts. The author has a very lucid writing style, adding in his own anecdotes and more detailed explanations of the background of the arts and of the origins of jujitsu also. This has created a very engaging work that is more than just another manual of Jujitsu. Instead it has enough detail and background( including numerous variations) to be considered a reference volume on the subject.
What also comes across is Prof Karnes views of the way martial arts should be transmitted and learned. The Sensei – student relationship and the need for dedication, time and mutual respect that this relationship entails is evident in this work and is refreshing to see.
I was also surprised to see a few variations that were new to me despite being a practitioner of DZR for more than 25 years!
I feel this book would be invaluable to any serious student of DZR or DZR Zenyo Bujutsu no matter what level of training they are at and would unreservedly recommend this work.
