Publisher's Summary

"A man who has attained mastery of an art reveals it in his every action." - Samurai maxim
Under the guidance of such celebrated masters as Ed Parker and the immortal Bruce Lee, Joe Hyams vividly recounts his more than twenty-five years of experience in the martial arts. In his illuminating story, Hyams reveals to listeners how the daily application of Zen principles not only developed his physical expertise but gave him the mental discipline to control his personal problems - self-image, work pressure, competition. Indeed, mastering the spiritual goals in martial arts can dramatically alter the quality of your life - enriching your relationships with people, as well as helping you make use of all your abilities.

Excellent book about the true spirit of martial arts

This is a great book about the spirit of the martial arts. It will not make you kick higher or turn you into a monk but it will show you how martial arts is not just exercise but a way for the mind, body and spirit to interact.
I have listened to it multiple times.
