A typhoon brings the renowned karate master Chojun Miyagi into the life of young Kenichi Ota, who must prove himself before he can enter the master’s inner circle. As once-peaceful Okinawa prepares for war, master and student venture to China in search of the deepest meaning of karate.

After the attack on Pearl Harbor, the tides of war turn against Japan and an American invasion fleet approaches Okinawa. Kenichi is conscripted as a runner for the Japanese general staff and finds himself in the epicenter of the Battle of Okinawa. In the aftermath, he must fight again to rebuild the shattered hopes of his people and to preserve his master’s art of karate.

5 starsAnother outstanding read by Goran Powell, Mark Hauck, Amazon

I am a great supporter of well researched historical fiction, particularly when the author knows how to do it and Goran Powell gets it. He takes the literary license of creating a fiction character and then places them in the story to witness and participate in a historical event or era as an involved observer.

5 starsViviane Crystal , Amazon

"Chojun: A Novel" is superb historical fiction as well as an action-packed account of the complete training in mind and spirit of the sport and art, Karate!!! ”

Riveting… Very highly recommended!

Chojun is an exciting next-step in the evolution of how karate’s history is told.
