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.
A must read for all karate students, even if all you get out of it is that the stories are cute.
