What can I say from the first page I was hooked, its like Shakespeare for Karate. Extremely well written. Beautiful, amazing, timeless classic. Someone who truly understands Japanese culture. If I had to some up one word. Pure. So pure, so good, you will have a glint in your eye at the end. This is how to live in Japan, how to treat Japanese, how to adapt and earn their love and guidance in return. I will never forget, 'Rank and championships are fine, but it is the path, the way, that is of most importance.'. Thank you Sensei Nicol for showing us the path.
