    Default eBay: Books: James Mitose - In Search Of Kenpo

    I ran across this book while searching eBay for kenpo stuff...

    But... a $90 starting price?

    Whatever this guy is smoking... he's getting his money's worth!

    However, I thought some of the Kara-Ho gang here on KT might find it of interest...

    These are collectors items. It will probably go for much more. These show up on rare book sites for $200-300 if you can catch them.
    More Shugyo!

    I have a nice sized library filled with martial art books on various topics. This is one book that I have watched the price steadily climb on year after year. I can kick myself for not picking this book up when I saw it on Ebay for about $20.00!!

    On a similar note (and one that makes me sick): For the longest time, I had an original copy of my old instructor's What is True Self-Defense?book. The copy had a hard black binding with a gold foil Kosho Crest on the Cover. The book was hand numbered and signed by Hanshi Bruce Juchnik. Unfortunately, the book was trashed when my instructor split up with his llive-in girlfriend. I think that book is going for about $300.00-$400.00 now and steadily climbing.

    Given the price of $90.00 for In Search of Kenpo, this is a bargain. I just wish I had the $200.00 to cover the cost of both books.
