Waking Dragons

A Martial Artist Faces His Ultimate Test

Ranked #52 in Karate

The 30 Man Kumite is one of karate's toughest tests, reserved for senior black belts with years of experience. One person fights a line-up of thirty fighters, one after another, full contact, moving up the grades to face the strongest, most dangerous fighters last. Waking Dragons is a true account of Goran Powell's 30 Man Kumite and the lifetime of martial arts that led up to it. He covers the fitness training and mental preparations required for such a brutal test, talking openly of the conquest of fear and the spiritual growth that is at the heart of the traditional martial arts.
