Format: Paperback
This book is a classic on martial arts. For many of us who have been practicing for decades, this was one of the first books we may have read.
It contains a collection of both interesting stories and pieces of information for students of martial arts that detail physical training regimens as well as martial philosophy and history. It is not a "how to" book but rahter an introduction to martial arts training in general. As this book is a classic, written by an American martial arts pioneer, it is worth having.

Format: Paperback
I borrowed this book from my Sensei and loved it so much that I had to buy it for myself! The stories in the second section are wonderful, and the ideas in the first half really make you examine yourself and your training.
A must read for all karate students, even if all you get out of it is that the stories are cute.
