Reviews

"One of the most attractive aspects of this book is the humor. Mr. Lowry points out the sheer necessity of self-deprecation and humor, mellowing the inevitable mistakes and failings of both students and sensei. Mr. Lowry's debunking of myth, placement of budo where it belongs in a healthy life, and recommendations for picking a sensei are invaluable. If you or your child are contemplating Japanese martial arts training, buy this book."--San Francisco/Sacramento Book Review
