My Karate Odyssey
Impressive and delightfully written. Mr Narker has long since mastered the true philosophy and spirit of perseverance, mental dignity and calm required to practice martial arts and he lives his life according to the true spirit of Osu. He perfected his Internationally recognized skills through long hours of hard and diligent training over the past 30 years.

An inspiring, motivational travelogue in which the author shares the many experiences of the trip and it includes profiles of the many instructors he met.

What I found refreshingly stimulating is your approach to karate which advocates no particular biasness towards any other style - of course you have an intimate knowledge of your own style and have thus an obligation to teach and spread it - which is rather rare in the karate world. Having had the privilege of experiencing your friendship for the past 15 years - it is very evident to me that your book reflects the values as expressed by you in life - I would have expected nothing less. Congratulations on living the dream of every serious karateka to train, teach, learn, experience karate and travel simultaneously.
