An Introspection on Martial Arts
“Astro Boy”, or “Mighty Atom” in Japan, was the United States’ first exposure to Japanese Manga and the beginning of Anime. It had, and has, a special appeal to me because of Astro Boy’s belief in his being an outcast, a stranger in a land he loved but felt could not love him back, not really, because he was not real himself. Somehow, I understood him.
Martial arts are not about individuals. They are about systems.
The thrust of this book is to give to you my perceptions and conclusions on martial arts in the world today. Not a ‘how to’, but how and why we are where we are.
Available as e-book and paperback. Audio Book is in process and will be available soon.
