"Usefull and invaluable for understanding a philosophy sometimes a world away from the Western way." Taiji Kase
"An excellent collection. Fraguas has hit it out of the park." Ray Dalke
"In Fraguas' capable hands, the wisdom of karate becomes much more than an Eastern mystic; it is seen as a philosophy of a great Japanese tradition.. with a different perspective from which to rethink not only solutions to technical problems but an opportunity to recast the very nature of the self-discovery aspects of Budo." Kenzo Mabuni.
"Karate Wisdom speaks to the reader as if karate-do philosophy caould act as a mirror that does not exist. This carefully edited collection of quotations serves as a clear path for all of us to consider what it means to go down the true path of Budo." Teruo Chinen
