Format: Paperback
The second book in the “Warrior Wisdom” series by Dr Bohdi Sanders delves further into the question “What does it mean to be a Warrior?”. Some people have the misconception that a Warrior is someone who fights, fights in the sense of using weaponry, a soldier. Warrior - The Way of Warriorhood takes the reader into the thought provoking realm of what it truly means to be a Warrior. Being a Warrior does not happen overnight, it is a process of trial and error. The Warrior is the person who abides by his/her own ethical code and this code is forged by the continuing search for their own truth. Further refining on Dr Sanders trademark of using quotes from influential figures in history, “Warrior - The Way of Warriorhood” is a compelling addition to the “Warrior Wisdom” series and a book which invaluable in its insights into the Warrior code.

Second of a Great Series 14 May 2009
By James Andrews - Published on Amazon.com
Bohdi Sanders, PhD, continues his study of wisdom and the warrior way with this volume. Dr. Sanders is a martial arts instructor, teacher, and coach. Not only is he a certified specialist in martial arts conditioning and personal trainer, he is a certified master of the healing arts G-Jo acupressure and Reiki.

This book is best used as a meditation guide. I use it each morning before my day unrolls, and I find as a trainer that many of these quotes and Sanders own wisdom that accompanies each one, can apply to the business world as well as the world of martial arts.

This book, as well as volume one, is a great guidebook of inspiration, whether the reader be seeking business, sports, or spiritual advice. Being a warrior is not about fighting, it is about an unrelenting attitude of quality in your life. Warrior Wisdom is a vital tool for a better life.

I have only two gripes. A detailed appendix in the back explains the source of the quotes. I would rather a line under each quote itself explain who the quote is from instead of having to flip back and forth. The second one is that at first glance it looks like any other martial arts book out there. For this reason, I fear that spiritual and business seekers of information may pass it by on the store shelf.

Do not pass this book by. It is a valuable addition to your library and daily reading.

Another Excellent Entry into the Series 31 May 2009
By Derek E. McElfresh - Published on Amazon.com
Warrior Wisdom: The Heart and Soul of Bushido, is the second book in the Warrior Wisdom series by Bohdi Sanders. I have read through both of the current volumes several times, and treasure the collected wisdom contained herein.

What never ceases to amaze me regarding this series, is that Dr. Sanders has gone so far above and beyond simply collecting a book of quotations. Often, the most useful interpretation of a quote is not immediately obvious, but Sanders spells it out for the reader in plain terms in his discussions about each quote.

As a lifelong martial artist, I am well versed in many of the quotes one would expect to find in a book of this nature, but that is another strength of this book - many of the quotes are ones most readers will have never heard before (myself included). The result is a really meaningful title that has the potential to make a lasting impact on the lives of anyone who reads the series and takes the advice found within to heart.

I simply can't recommend this book enough. Buy this, and buy the first book in the series while you are at it.

to seek perfection of character 4 Jan. 2010
By Clarence J. Nixon - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Back in the early eighties there was a statistic floating around that said out of 50,000 people who began karate training only one earned a black belt. Lured by misconceptions that resulted from movies like "The Karate KId," or "Enter The Dragon," the novelty quickly wore off as the realization set in that you can't, unless you're exceptional, become skilled enough to beat a black belt with an attitude in six months. Even those who "stuck it out" for that long still didn't get the gist of the art and drifted away in the face of the effort and focus required to become a true karateka. Even many who got a black belt did so while pursuing dubious goals.
The physical aspects of karate are, to a point, easy to understand. Unfortunately, for many who become reasonably skilled that is the end all of their training. Winning trophies for kumite and kata at tournaments becomes the ultimate measure of success.
So, just what is it that they are missing? Gichin Funakoshi, generally accepted as the "Father of Modern Karate," set, as the ultimate goal of the art, "the perfection of character." In his book, "Karate-do: My Way of Life," Master Funakoshi wrote that he only had two fights (outside of training) in his life and regretted them both. If you end up in a fight, he wrote, you've failed. In my dojo, and in Shotokan dojos around the world, you will (or should) find, conspicuously posted on one of the walls, the Dojo Kun, a set of five precepts he urged all his students to live by. Karate, for him, was indeed a way of life. They are: to seek perfection of character; to always be faithful; to endeavor to excel; to always respect others; to refrain from violent behavior. Karate, Master Funakoshi taught, is 10 percent physical and 90 percent mental. True students take that seriously and "endeavor" to be the best person they can be.
As I said, the physical part is straight forward. You make a commitment and train faithfully. As for the other 90 percent, well, a great deal more is necessary. Introspection is, in its way, much more difficult than doing heian shodan a thousand times, and requires an even more rigorous dedication. The good news is reinventing the wheel is not necessary. Enter Bohdi Sanders and his "Warrior Wisdom" trilogy.
Sensei Sanders has laboriously compiled a treasure trove of wisdom that crosses many centuries, and many cultures. His goal is to share this wisdom with us so that our journey, if we choose to take it, will be illuminated by his years of research and practice. As he says: "Bushido, the way of the warrior, is not meant to be self-serving, it is meant to be of service for a higher purpose."
With that in mind, he takes us on an odyssey that includes visits with some of the most cogent thinkers of this, or any time. One of those, Bayard Taylor, is quoted in Volume 1, and sums up the value of Sensei Sanders's work: "Opportunity is rare and a wise man will never let it go by him." Passing these volumes by would, indeed, be an opportunity lost.
They are not simply a compilation of quotes. Sensei shares his thoughts on each, but, in no way implies that we should fall into lock step behind him. He offers a starting point and, like all good teachers, expects that we'll find our own way. These books aren't sit down reads from cover to cover. They, like karate-do, are a life long endeavor. One page a day, for instance, read and considered, then on to the next. Read, think, repeat. Used properly, you might have to replace them every three or four years unless you're handy with Scotch Tape.
Sensei has made us an offer we can refuse, but we do so at our own personal risk. Buy all three and wear them out, even if you have no intention of ever stepping into a dojo. We all should seek perfection of character and make the world a better place, one person at a time. (Also, watch for Bohdi's latest book, "Life Lessons: Politically Incorrect Wisdom," due out later this month.)

a continuation of excellence 17 May 2009
By jlbjr - Published on Amazon.com
I was a little bit worried that the second book in what appears to be a series of books written by Dr. Sanders would not live up to the first book. What a pleasant surprise when after reading the book it is as good as the first book. I dont believe the books need to be read in sequence to gain a complete understanding (meaning you could read the second one before the first one) as he continues with more quotes from notable individuals in history and adding his excellent though provoking explanation after the quote. Once again I read the book through in 3-4 days which the author does not recommend but I just could not put it down. Again as with the first book this book is easily readable and referenced. These books by Dr. Sanders are truly thought provoking and apply to martial artists, business executives, teachers, etc.
In addition this is not a boring philosophy book but a thought provoking book that as with the first edition will greatly change the thought patterns of those who read it. Thanks again Dr. Sanders and keep up the good work.

A Pleasant Surprise 15 May 2009
By M. Castaneda, DC, CFT - Published on Amazon.com
Having already reviewed Bodhi Sanders first Volume of "Warrior Wisdom," I was most pleasantly surprised at the quality of his 2nd volume in this series. Truthfully, I felt -- for reasons as yet not entirely clear - that this 2nd volume was actually better than the first. Perhaps it was that reading through its quotes I felt Sensei Sanders was being less didactic and more reflective, or perhaps the quotes in this volume were simply less familiar to me, but in any case, I found it an improvement over even his first volume (which was quite good, although I did not rate it quite as high as this volume). The quotes are to be savored -- much like fine chocolate, which is best eaten a little at a time and slowly, allowing the aroma to penetrate one's olfactory tract and stimulate parts deep in the brain -- forming potent yet hidden neurological connections that can alter one's experiences, conclusions, and (hopefully) behavior. Well done Sensei. Consider this a most respectful verbal bow.
