"Spirituality, awareness of the martial arts, weaponry, dances, music, tools, diet, and language are important in Hawai‘i’s cultural heritage. This book will be a stepping-stone to many readers who have not yet seen these aspects of the Hawai'ian culture. Sid Campbell has unveiled answers and visions pertaining to Hawaiian myths, legends, and untold stories, and my deepest respect goes to him and this treasured book."
—Al Dacascos, Lua practitioner, Kajukenbo Grandmaster, founder of Won Hop Kune Do Kung-fu, Oahu, Hawai’i
"'Uncle' Sid Campbell’s art and writing are truly reflective of the Hawai‘i that I remember the makua (parents and relatives) describing as I was growing up in Maui. The kahiko (ancient dances) that I love so much reflect the true spirit of the warriors of yore. I think 'Uncle' Sid has captured that spirit splendidly!"
—Lysha Kamisato, Miss Maui, 2004
"Sid Campbell is as much ‘ohana as my own family. We have shared much of the ancient ways that existed in Hawai'i long before the Europeans arrived. My ancestors were warriors and passed many stories to me, and I am honored that Sid decided to convey some of these ancient teachings in his latest book. As a fellow martial artist, I am blessed to know Sid Campbell and have always enjoyed the way he writes so passionately about history, traditions, and the people he loves."
