This is a small, some will say superficial book in terms of theory and history, but it has the mark of a personal truth which is really the most important thing in this kind of writing
I really liked it a lot and I expect anyone who is interested in martial arts or meditation or Japan will too. The cover is adopted from the famous Zen rock-garden in Ryoan-Ji , Kyoto, Japan.

Being a martial artist is not what you do, but what you are.
If you just want to win fights, then go and buy a shotgun.
In short, Morris takes you through some of his history in the martial arts and at the same time gives you some useful insights into martial arts philosophy. He spends a great deal of time focused on how meditation fits into the martial arts. I found this book interesting and enjoyed it. It is a book that addressed a part of the martial arts which many books neglect to address - meditation and the mind.
