Yay! I've finally managed to find a UK supplier of Infinite Insights!

http://www.monabooks.com/karate.htm

They've got volumes 1-5 for 15 quid a piece, say I could afford two, which two would people consider to be the most important? There's no way I can afford to buy them all :(

Not at the moment anyway.

The books are definately worth the money. Evry student shoul dhave a copy and every instructor should have three. One for himself to work with and mark in, one for his school library and one for his own personal book shelf. Note(himself can also beherself, no discrimination intended.)

The II Vols 1 - 5 are great, even if you aren't in Kenpo. Will give you some really great ways of thinking about Self Defense.

Some people, whose name I won't mention Dennis Conatser :lol:,
Can quote page and paragraph, etc. My point being that if it is that important to someone of that status... The set is probably a good thing to have.

You will see some of the Kenpo Seniors in there too... Kind of an education in "Where are they now"! :lol:

Excellent, sounds like I haven't wasted my money then!

Worked out at 瞿75 for the set, I guess that's about $120. Unfortunately not living in America, land of the plentiful and cheap, that's about as low as it's getting!

I hope they don't take too long to deliver, I want to get stuck in now!

Yes they are. It took me forever to finally get around and buy my own copies of them. I was always mooching someone else's copies.

Trust me , you don't want to work where I work! It's a youth library and it's full of screaming, misbehaving kids who refuse to respect my authority!

One of the ladies I work with is off sick though so I've crammed in a load of overtime these last two weeks, since I'm off for Summer, so I'll use the money from that.

I thought I'd follow up rather than have people argue about the best two books for the next 3 days!

Yes, I imagine I'm going to have quite a few! There'll be a lot of stuff in there I've never ever encountered before, should be interesting to break new ground.

They should be here inside a couple of weeks anyway, he's sending them in 2 lots because they were out of vols 2 and 3,

Ian,

If you had asked me, I could have given you that information.
I've been using Mona Books for years.

They're not the only supplier in the UK, but at least you've got them now.

I know you'll find them useful.

Sorry Les, I didn't think, I went to look at Amazon and it said they were out of print, so I didn't think anyone would have them unless they were copies people had left over from ages ago, which they would no doubt want to hang on to.

Anyways, it's sorted now :)

Ian.

It should NOT really be new ground! This Series is Ed Parker's life work. The techniques and forms, principles and information has been in use for the past 20 + years. So there is not a whole lot new in there, but much laid out and explained to some degree.

The II books are truly excellent, but boy could they use an editor!
