Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Suino writes balanced, thoughtful works on budo, and this latest work is no exception. . . . This book is a nice introduction to budo for individuals new to the world of the dojo. It is short on hyperbole and long on experience and common sense. I would recommend it as an appropriate work for novice students, although the clarity of Suino's prose and the sincerity of his convictions regarding the benefits of studying budo would recommend it to any reader who shares something of his experience and his beliefs."—Journal of Asian Martial Arts
