Masters of Their Art.

Listen to the words.

I picked up a really great book the other day.

It is written by a fellow martial artist named James Sidney, 4th Dan, in Chito Ryu. His sensei is Masami Tsuruoka, 9th Dan, co-Founder of Canada's National Karate Association. The book is entitled, The Warrior's Path, Wisdom from Contemporary Martial Arts Masters. This book contains the words, and thoughts, of fifteen different Masters, who between them represent a variety of martial art disciplines.

One of the things that I found interesting was the common theme that seemed to run through the words of all of the Masters. Especially when it came to talking about their personal beliefs, and the obvious love they have for their chosen martial art. I will not spoil the story by going into specific details, suffice to say, buy the book.

I suspect that experienced students will probably derive the most from this book, but the comments made by the various Masters should really be heard by all generations, and ranks. Their thoughts, and comments, truly transcend the barriers of age and style.

 Remember: “Knowledge comes from many places, but only to those who seek it.”
