The Martial Spirit is a book that I can't see failing to appeal to any thoughtful person who has spent sufficient time in any martial discpline. The author has himself training widely in what on the surface appear to be very disparate arts and has trained for a sufficiently long time to give us a perspect that few are able to offer.
While I don't agree with all of his conclusions I feel strongly that his opinions were not offered hastily or without careful thought as to their effect on a broad readership.Kauz also is also highly literate and is able to write with a command of the language that few in the genre can surpass.
I would recommend this book to virtually anyone who is interested in the martial arts. It is definitely in my top 10 books on the subject.

By JFO - Published on Amazon.com

THIS IS A VERY GOOD BOOK ON THE PHILOSOPHY AND PRICIPLES OF THE MARTIAL ARTS. KAUZ DOES AN EXCELLENT JOB. THIS A VERY GOOD BOOK AND WELL WORTH ADDING TO YOUR COLLECTION.

Disappointing March 16 2005
By Kelly - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Has some initial good information about martial arts in general, but tends to be very negative. Is also contradictory at times. Book is also outdated in several areas. Author tends to start mantras sometimes unrelated to spirituality or martial arts. Disappointing to say the least. Much better books at there like Zen in the Martial Arts.
