Burying the dead at the tender age of fifteen is not what your average teenager volunteers to do, but then there is nothing average about Pemba Tamang, not now that he’s in his fifties or when he began his life growing up under the watchful eye of the Himalaya’s. As one of the first foreigners to graduate the infamous kenshusei (instructors) course under the original Japan Karate Association (JKA), this colourful account of his life from a poor Nepalese boy to a world renowned karate instructor, will take you on a journey of discovery, not only about karate and training at one of the most famous dojos in the world, or as a foreigner adapting to life in Japan, but how a life of highs and lows, successes and failures, allowed him to finally find ‘the way.’ This is not just a story for practitioners of karate but a guide for all those searching for more in life, or simply looking to understand themselves more deeply.Biografía del autor:
