Bubishi Classic, Like You Have Never Seen Before (Updated)


Plum treasures our close affiliation with Lionbooks in Taiwan, both for their extensive library of authentic, hard-to-find martial arts literature, and the exceptional job they do of making these books beautiful.

So, we are excited to announce their new english language study of the Bubishi, the foundational text of  Karate, including two Bubishi manuals, both in Chinese. The translator writes: “The first has been published before (in Japanese publications) but the second (which is in color) has never been published before. In fact, no one even knew it existed.”

And, of course, Plum will have copies!

When can I get them?

We expect these to land in about a week, and are accepting pre-orders right now. And we will post more information about the book and its heritage. International customers, this would be a great time to check out our new, less expensive postage rates!

UPDATE: First shipment completely sold out! That went fast. Second helping should be here around Dec 26.

How do I order?
