Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Budo is religion. It’s not something you dilly-dally with, practice, and go home. It’s part of your life. All martial arts should become that way, part of your life.”–Pat Yoshitsugu Murosako, from The Warrior’s Path

The Warrior’s Path presents the timeless wisdom of contemporary masters of the Japanese martial arts–men and women who brought martial arts into the modern era and whose lives have been defined by their devotion to training. Here they share their personal stories, offer perspectives on what martial arts study can offer people today, reflect on the role of formal competition, and describe what it’s like to train as one grows older.

The masters featured here began their training in the early twentieth century–a seminal time in the history of Japanese martial arts. They studied with some of the pioneers of judo, karate, aikido, iaido, kendo, and naginata–masters who emphasized that these battlefield arts were best understood and practiced as budo, or martial arts for self-development. These engaging stories, accompanied by the author’s striking photographs, make this book essential reading for students and teachers of martial arts.

Synopsis:

Modern Japanese masters share their insights into martial arts training as a physical discipline and a way of life--accompanied by one hundred exquisite photographs.
