Essays on the Japanese Martial Arts and Ways
By (author) David Lowry
Traditions by David Lowry
Book DescriptionThe goals of the budo - the martial arts and ways of Japan - lie in refining the body and spirit. These goals are not always the obvious ones and are learned only through the guidance and direction of great teachers. The techniques, methods and rituals of the sensei can serve as guides to a well-lived life and provide invaluable lessons for today's martial artists. This collection of essays includes discussions of: the spirit of ryomi; the importance of yuyo; and the significance of ma. With its focus on traditional martial arts and stories that illustrate key martial arts principles, "Traditions" aims to be required reading for serious martial artists.
