The Voice of Karate Since 1968.
“My father’s fascination with the martial arts began with a single reverse punch delivered by his future sensei, John Kuhl (who appeared on our first cover at left) — a punch that not only sent him sprawling, but ignited an insatiable curiosity. He became a sponge for knowledge on the subject and it wasn’t long before he realized that the public deserved, indeed needed, to know more about these ancient disciplines. He also recognized the need for a forum through which instructors and practitioners could share their knowledge and skills. OFFICIAL KARATE TM was born.
Now, over 40 years later, a talented and devoted team of Grandmaster practitioners led by Andrew Linick and Keith D. Yates have chosen to resurrect this, the first martial arts magazine published on the east coast. Young practitioners of all styles will be kept abreast of events in the martial arts community as well as learn of their shared heritage—of those who made the martial arts the popular phenomenon that they remain today. The masters, the ones that have withstood the test of decades of devotion, will be able to look back fondly on the glory days of American martial arts. Everyone wins.
My father would be humbled that his past efforts would be so honored, and it is with great enthusiasm that I offer my profound congratulations and wishes for success to this, the 21st century incarnation of an American martial arts classic.”
