Learning the Path of the Warrior
Captivated by images of Bruce Lee during the martial arts boom of the early ’70s, Richard Amos began his journey into the world of Bushido: the path of the warrior. His intuition soon told him that karate was much more than simply developing fighting skills. Certain that a life of karate would assure him of philosophical insights and not just competition wins, he began his fascinating voyage from London, to New York, and then Tokyo. Richard tells his story through vividly recounted experiences, showing us that karate is a complete art form and a lifetime endeavour. Equal parts thoughtful and thrilling, this transformational memoir will inspire and bring to everyone a deep appreciation of the dedication necessary to excel in this multi-faceted, exacting discipline.
