This review is from: Zen in the Martial Arts (Mass Market Paperback)
As a practitioner in Martial Arts from aged 9 this book has unlocked another thought process in my mind. A valuable source of information and inspiration. The author has displayed the problems that have faced him as a student and as a master and given much thought to resolving these conflicts. You do not need to understand the theory of Zen, this is a simple but deeply moving book of epic proportions. For the Martial Art practitioner the author has an uncanny ability to pass on further direction. This book is vital for the student and the Master and should be mandatory in the Dojang for all to learn from, follow and continually refer to. However as a book on life it is just as valaubale for the non martial artist.
