1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Henry McCann on Jan. 20 2000
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.

An excellent overview of karate by an American legend. Sensei Peter Urban captures the very essence of karate in this extremely well written book. It is a must read for all students of karate.
