There is no stone left unturned in this book. The author delves into the teaching craft and describes it comprehensively. Any 'missing' aspects would be the silly stuff (children's birthday parties) and the cynical money-grabbing tactics. The author instead fills the void with a lot of insight into Asian philosophy and culture, and how they are relevant and can help a martial arts school. The wording is clear and the language engaging, so even the complex comes across with ease.
Because of the breadth of the work it is a bit challenging to describe, but it will definitely exceed your expectations if you have been reading other martial arts literature before. It is a cut above.
Three things I liked that stood out:
- Author's respect for his teachers and traditions.
- Many useful stories and anecdotes from the personal experience of the author and other notable teachers.
- The humane and overwhelmingly positive approach to everything the author talks about, as well as the solutions he offers for the challenges teachers face.
With these three major strengths and the scope of the work, this book makes an honorary addition to my personal library.
