5.0 out of 5 stars powerful and elegant, 15 April 2008
Like the martial arts at there best this book is powerful and elegant.

The photography and artistry of the design add finesse to the powerful message that lies in the text. Every page is packed with insight and a depth of knowledge that can only have come from years of dedicated practice and reflection. I am convinced that any martial artist who reads this book will turn its last page with clearer map, and truer compass to navigate there way through the world of martial arts than that with which they started.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Inspiring read for all, 10 July 2006
I bought this book a couple of days ago and didn't put it down till I finished it today. It is one of those rare books where the author really connects with his reader. In describing his own experiences, emotions, fears, and aspirations so clearly, the author articulates the elusive feelings that I am sure so many have had about there own lives and training.

He writes very modestly of his achievements and skill, which only serves to inspire even more. I recommend this to martial artists and non-martial artist alike, not only as a chance to take a glimpse into the mind of martial artists, but as a look at the power of the mind and spirit.
