Irving, TX, November 08, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- A new website is offering karate enthusiasts a chance to read classic karate books.
"Martial arts are quickly becoming the most popular sport for young people. With the recent popularity of Mixed Martial Arts we're seeing people start being interested in older techniques. Unfortunately there is not a wide range of older instructional material available," says Dan Kaczynski, owner of the website http://www.karate-books.net/.
The site was created to give martial arts students a place to find out of print, rare, or classic kung fu, judo, and karate books for free.
"It may seem like an old school approach but there is a big demand for these books. Many folks are interested in learning about the past but finding literature has been next to impossible," claims Kaczynski.
Kaczynski is currently building the library of judo and karate books. Due to the nature of age of many titles, most are public domain works. The site should be online by the end of the year with as many titles available in digital formats as possible.
As far the prevalence of e-books and digital readers, Kaczynski also says "The fact is many karate books are not yet available in digital format. The Kindle and Nook are very popular, but lacking for martial arts enthusiasts. We're going to bridge the gap."
