We are no longer at the bottom of the food chain.
The tigers and the lions and the Man-enemies of antiquity are safely caged and emasculated in public zoos and national parks.
But new enemies have emerged and they are insidious masters of stealth: the illnesses, viruses and diseases that largely exist in contemporary society because of man’s penchant for excessive consumption and his lack of physical activity. With the need for hunting and gathering and living off our wits rapidly declining, the under-used physical body is becoming less of a sinewy working tool and more of a cumbersome liability. We have lost not only our desire for the warrior mentality; we have lost our reason for it. Infirmity is kicking sand in all our faces, and this has to change if we are to survive as a species.
In his powerful new book, Geoff Thompson, martial arts legend, says that people have forgotten why it is important to be courageous.
Warrior is a simple, step-by-step guide to re-booting our purpose and reclaiming our warriorship.
