SKM Back Issues on Disc

A total of 159 magazines reproduced electronically

Newly revamped for the inclusion of issues 1-159, with a new navigation system and authors index, linking authors directly to their articles. The drop down menu system gives you greatly expanded return options from every article in the collection.

You can view the pages of these issues on your computer as they appeared in print and incorporating a few extra advantages:

Colour photos have been used where available when the magazine was published in black and white

Powerful Searchable Database

An indexing section linking every article & magazine with an authors section linking their articles

The disc contains an introduction which allows you to browse all the contents of each magazine and you are able to link directly to the magazine or even go directly to any of the articles or interviews. We have made it possible for you to return to the introduction from any page of the magazines and have also provided individual indexing within each magazine.


All of the pages take advantage of Adobe Acrobats articles feature which allows you to follow and read any article purely by scrolling, very useful for reading directly off the screen

Powerful Searchable Database

These magazines have been turned into a powerful searchable database. Acrobat Reader can perform full-text searches of PDF document collections. The Search command also has powerful tools for limiting and expanding the definition of the term for which you are searching. The text can be a single word, a number, a term, or a phrase. The results are listed in rank order in the Search Results. This feature really adds value to the collection of back issues


We have been able to incorporate colour photos where available making many of the earlier black and white magazines have approximately 50% of their content in colour. Since issue 100 all the pages in the magazine have been produced in colour.

A single set of ten back issues on a CD costs £15

Each extra set of ten back issues can be added to the same disc at £15 per set

Each time you buy a single set of ten back issues we will incorporate any previous issues that you have already purchased onto the disc free of charge (if requested).

It is our aim for you to end up with a complete set of back issues on one disc for your convenience and to take advantage of this resource as a database.

The magazine has been published since November 1984. Because it is a very specialised and Traditional magazine we only publish each quarter (March - June - September - December) . We do pride ourselves on featuring the most senior and famous Shotokan Senseis in the world in the magazine and it is totally non-political, we feature everyone from all the various organisations.
