Peter Ventreska had a dojo on Pearl St in Boston in the late 1960's. I studied with Peter for two summers: 1966 and 1967 while I was in College.

While I was there, Peter wrote a book “Shotokan, the Ultimate in Self Defense”. It is still available on Amazon. The book covers basics, Tekki Shodan, and Bassai Dai. ( I don’t believe he taught the opening of Bassai the way it is shown).

There are no links about him that I could find. Maybe I’ll stop by your dojo sometime, I have some interesting stories.

I found a link about him. http://budget.net/~dnolan/p4.html I also found his book on Amazon. Thank you for giving me this piece of history for my school. I was trying to find who Peter Ventresca studied with but I couldn't get it any further back than that. I was wondering how many teachers there were between him and Funikoshi. All of a sudden, history became exciting. I found the original American Shotokan teachers from a Shotokan site. It would be nice if I could connect the two. I can't believe how much information I have received and all from asking a question about this really weird kata.

This is very close to the missing link.
