Overview

The war defines the warrior.

Born into a tribal war with India, trained as a black belt and street fighter from the age of nine, tortured and left for dead at the age of seventeen, Cosmo Zimik has an intimate, working knowledge of violence.

During his long weeks of recovery, nursed to health by a total stranger deep in the jungle, the seed of the Empty Hand Revolution germinated in Cosmo's mind. Four years of underground fight clubs, multiple contracts on his life and another near death experience forced Cosmo's Empty Hand Revolution into full fruition.

In a world hungry for power and drunk on violence, what does it mean to be a warrior? True greatness requires humility. Courage requires surrender. Developing into a warrior on such terms has been Cosmo Zimik's life quest. Born a Naga and forged a warrior, Zimik became a missionary and then finally a revolutionary of a new breed. From the jungles of Manipur to the streets of Delhi to the countryside of Idaho, his extraordinary journey will inspire and convict.

Empty Hand Revolution invites the reader to experience Cosmo's sometimes humorous, sometimes tragic, yet always incredible world through his own eyes. And may the bold in spirit discover first-hand where empty hands can lead.

Meet the Author

After a classic eighties’ childhood as a rancher’s son in Texas, David attended University of Montana, then spent thirteen years as a campus pastor with InterVarsity Christian Fellowship at Boise State University and the University of Utah.
In 2009, he and his wife made the decision to jettison their lucrative day jobs, move, and raise a family while David pursued full time work as a novelist and writer. During the four-plus years since, they’ve been thrust into an empty hand revolution of their own. (It turns out writers don’t make much money. Who knew?)
Two sons and eight books later, David found himself living in Nampa, Idaho and taking his eldest boy to kung fu classes at Empty Hand Combat. As he pieced together the events of Cosmo’s life through impromptu stories shared with students, it struck David there was a book waiting to be written.
That decision has altered the trajectory of his life. He suspects reading Empty Hand Revolution will prompt you to do the same.
