Overview

Martial arts legend Grandmaster Kazumi Tabata presents a brilliant analysis for modern readers of the most famous work of martial strategy, The Art of War of Sun Tzu.

Warrior Wisdom also includes an analysis of the lesser-known The Tactics of Shokatsu Komei, as well as additional warrior tactics that have enabled the author to become a Grandmaster in Shotokan Karate and one of the most influential martial artists in North America.

Since he was sent to the United States by his master Isao Obata in the 1960s to promote Karate, Tabata has continually refined his teaching methods and distillations of classic Asian knowledge to enable Westerners to truly understand and take to heart these valuable lessons. This martial arts strategy book should be read by anyone interested in learning the ancient wisdom of these timeless classics to overcome challenges and excel in everything they do—whether in the martial arts, in business, or in everyday life.
