Anderson, Super Dan  
SUPER DAN A Martial Arts Memoir

Publisher: Self Published.
Very Good+, 2011, First Printing, Paperback 145658426X Used in trade paperback. A bright, clean copy. Gift inscription and signature of the author on the first page. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 251 pages; "Super Dan" is the memoirs of the first national karate champion to break out and compete with his own eclectic American karate style. Beginning in the small town of Vancouver, Washington, he tells his tale of starting out in karate all the way through winning the world karate championships and becoming a Grand Master in two major martial arts. "As most of you are aware, in 1980, Professor Dan Anderson wrote the best book written to-date on point-sparring, "American Freestyle Karate: A Guide to Sparring." Professor Anderson is now nearing completion of his new book, a personal memoirs. I have had the opportunity to read the final draft. Quite simply, I can state unequivocally that it is, in my humble opinion, the best memoir ever written regarding sport karate. Moreover, it is perhaps the best study of 1970s sport karate ever put to paper." Tom Levak - USA National Karate Federation 17-time world Champion; Signed by Author

Judo: 41 Lessons in the Modern Science of Jiu-Jitsu
 Picture
Publisher: Prentice-Hall, Inc., 1960 Englewood Cliffs, NJ.
Book. Book condition: Good. Fair. Hardcover 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall "In no other sport can mere brute strength be so quickly and so decisively overcome by sheer skill as in Judo - the modern, scientific form of Jiu-Jitsu. This practical guide will enable any physically normal person, practicing with reasonable diligence, to develop in a short time the speed and finesse necessary for mastering the science of Jiu-Jitsu. Judo is also splendid as a day-by-day method for keeping fit as well as valuable equipment for self-defense. Systematic practice of the 120 Judo movements set forth by the authors is guaranteed to give tone to any sluggish muscle. Each step in the forty-one lessons in elementary Judo is clearly explained, with 180 illustrations of the performers in action. A glance at the accompanying directions gives an accurate explanation of the principles of leverage, balance and action that enable even a beginner to develop an undeniable advantage over any opponent. In the Enlarged Edition important new material has been added, including eleven lessons which will be of particular use to men in the armed forces. These movements are intended both for recreation and for use in actual hand-to-hand combat." Very well illustrated. 146 pages. Book is in GOOD condition; expected wear. Dust jacket is present and almost complete, but with more wear than we like to see; thus, FAIR condition.
