Comprehensive Coverage of the Martial Arts of Japan, Okinawa and China

 

The Classical Fighting Arts team of contributing editors and technical advisors—which includes many of the greatest living martial arts masters and researchers—produces material of unequalled quality and depth. So much so that in 2010 it won the Award for Literary Excellence from the Okinawan Prefectural Karate Do Federation.

 

If you are seeking accurate, professionally researched material that is also an enjoyable and stimulating read, CFA should be your magazine of choice.
