with Commentary by Michael Hattori
After many requests, Michael Hattori has written a supplementary translation for Makiko Tada's Comprehensive Treatise of Braids I: Marudai Braids 1(CTB 1). Although the book is largely translated into English there remain areas, particularly toward the end of the book, which are not translated and contain important braiding information. In addition, he has added his own commentary which contains expanded braiding information and many extras, such as an explanation of the Japanese weight system (momme), a glossary, and even a handy Japanese pronunciation primer. For any who already own CTB 1 or are considering buying the 2020 4th edition, this supplement highly recommended.
