After more than ten years out of print, Nintai Publications is proud to announce the publication of a new, revised edition of “Spirit of the Empty Hand” – Sensei Stan Schmidt’s classic masterpiece of a student’s journey through karate training. The author has described this collectors edition as the “Director’s Cut” for Spirit of the Empty Hand, with the original text re-edited; a new Foreword; and the addition of an Epilogue written by Sensei Schmidt himself. This new edition also includes some wonderful illustrations by martial artist Maurice Richard Libby, which help bring the book to life more than ever before.
This is a limited edition version of the book – printed and bound to the highest standards in hardback with a beautiful presentation “slip-on” box to help keep the book in pristine condition. Each book contains an individually numbered certificate of authenticity.
This is a very special collector’s item of a very special karate book. Because numbers are limited to just 1,000 it will be essential to order early to avoid disappointment. Orders may be limited per customer due to high demand.
At the author’s request, a donation will be made to two charities from the sale of each book: “Pink Karate – Breast Cancer Awareness” and “We Are Together – Agape Orphanage”.
