I am reading this new book that i ordered last week as i wanted to learn as much as i could about Goju Ryu’s history. It delves quite deeply into the history of Okinawa and it’s martial arts in general which was a pleasant surprise to see how timelines align with everything that was occuring on the island (Such as Judo and the gradual emphasis on martial arts being taught in public schools on Okinawana and mainland japan) for the past few thousand year. The various instuctors/students are covered in more detail as we get closer to the present day.
I will share more once i have gotten much further into the book ( i am about 100 pages in so far!)
