This chapter is inspired by ancient okinawan manuscript – Bubishi. This doesnt mean that I will demonstrate exatly 48 techniques. Title is same as title of similar chapter in Bubishi. Goal of this article is to show wide diversity of karate techniques – strikes, kicks, joint locks, throws, chokes and holds. Furthermore, if we only analyze one technique, there are many variations depending of style, tradition or teachers point of view. Here is my point of view, based on many years of practice, research and seminars. I will recommend to you all to read Bubishi and Funakoshi’s Tote jutsu. It is also very useful to see some video tapes as Chin Na, Okinawa Karate, Goju ryu, Ryueryu and Okinawan karate masters.
