eBook (PDF): $9.11
This work has been published to enhance an Okinawan cultural asset that can help to advance individual development and creativity. "The book," the author states, "is not intended to be... More > a beautification of brutality, or a glorification of the misdeeds of an ancient and evil epoch, when the sword ruled supreme. These distorted, negative images associated with the martial arts are a gory remnant of a withered time, the skeletal remains of a diseased nightmare that should be buried forever and left alone to decay in peace - although a means to an end they might well have been. However, the positive aspects of martial arts, the concepts of improving and protecting oneself and one’s vigour, that have brought civilisation through the dark ages, are still very much alive in present-day Okinawa Prefecture as a form of recreation, spiritual discipline and health preservation." Thus, in unravelling the many 'mysteries' surrounding Okinawan karate, weaponry & te, the author opens the doors of positive understanding.< Less

eBook (ePub): $8.89
(1 Ratings)
The Book of Five Rings (Go Rin No Sho) is a text on the martial arts and strategies, written by the swordsman Miyamoto Musashi circa 1645. This book enjoys an audience considerably broader than only... More > that of martial artists: for instance, some business leaders find its discussion of conflict and taking the advantage to be relevant to their work. Musashi establishes a "no-nonsense" theme throughout the text. For instance, he repeatedly remarks that technical flourishes are excessive, and contrasts worrying about such things with the principle that all technique is simply a method of cutting down one's opponent. He also continually makes the point that the understandings expressed in the book are important for combat on any scale, whether a one-on-one duel or a massive battle. Descriptions of principles are often followed by admonitions to "investigate this thoroughly" through practice rather than trying to learn them by merely reading.< Less
