    This lovely print volume is a rare, authentic work based on a life lived in full engagement with the subject matter. Every idea was substantive and the material is clearly coming from a place of experience and higher-order thinking. This handbook is not just regurgitating acquired cultural cliches, but revitalizes the artform by focusing on what works and why. I did not expect a book on fencing to be so readable. I expected a very dry manual full of decontextualized figures and facts but this achieved a metacognitive level of instruction. Its a great example of teaching how to think in any context, and never loses sight of supporting understanding and making effective choices in a complex and dangerous endeavour. I hope the author will write more on other areas of daoist martial arts and internal arts. I am shocked that more literate instruction has been generally absent from western martial arts tutilege, when it can be this effective at teaching.
