Solid, accurate, and useful information and history,
This review is from: Traditions: Essays on the Japanese Martial Arts and Ways (Tuttle Martial Arts) (Paperback)
Once again Dave Lowry produces a book that every martial artist should read. A collection of his magazine columns, 'Traditions' is a set of essays each about a different aspect of training, or etiquette, or the history of Japanese martial ways. His writing is clear, concise (each essay is only 2-3 pages, so bite-sized lessons are easily absorbed) and generously illustrated with stories, anecdotes, and allegory. Often personal, usually very funny, and always instructive, Mr. Lowry is an honest and sincere practitioner of his arts, and this comes across clearly in all his writings. 'Traditions' is no exception, and I highly recommend it.
