Sun Tzu wrote this classic text more than 2,000 years ago. It continues to influence generals and others in the military, but its applications to the martial artist, or the businessperson, or anyone who needs to manage people, achieve objectives, and risk defeat while attempting victory, will find it relevant and insightful as well. This edition contains every word of Sun Tzu's as well as very light commentary on some portions of the text by Shelby and Kelly Perkins, owners of Guardian Martial Arts and Fitness. As black belts managing their own martial arts studio for many years, they know how Tzu's insights speak to the martial artist training for combat as well as how they relate to running a business. Enjoy Tzu's timeless insight and a few comments here and there by Shelby and Kelly, which are denoted with the letters "GMA" when they occur. After you read some of them, you will quickly grasp how you too can apply Tzu's advice to your own life, in your own situation, and in your own battles.
