Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Cutting across the broad spectrum of martial arts' most influential and profound teachers, this book gives rare insights into the physical, mental, and spiritual methods that have enabled these chosen few to reach the pinnacles of their particular style. JKD icon Dan Inosanto, kickboxing great Bill Superfoot Wallace, Eskrima master Edgar Sulite, grappling legend Judo Gene Lebell, Wing Chun kung-fu fighter Wong Shun Leung — just to name a few — share thoughts and experiences in rare interviews that define the essence of their martial arts mastery. These interviews are usually candid, crusty and revealing, a reflection of a now-vanished era when martial arts and the commercialism were not so adversarial and when training and tournaments inspired conversations amongst the greatest martial artists of all time.
