In this sequel to Tales of the Dojo, Tony Annesi inverts the intent: instead of LifeLessons from the Martial Arts, he draws Martial Arts Lessons from life, from unexpected true life sources, many his own experiences. The dojo files yield never before published stories that take you out of the dojo and into real life. These are neither adventures nor stories about street encounters. They are about simple, daily occurrences we often take for granted. They hold unexpected truths that integrate budo (martial ways) with daily life...and daily life with self-development.
