Students of the martial arts know that while technical prowess and physical power are essential characteristics in a fighter, true mastery of a martial art comes from cultivating one's inner strength. In Ki and the Way of the Martial Arts, Kenji Tokitsu shows how cultivating ki (or life force) and understanding the principles of budo (the martial path of self-development) can make training in martial arts more meaningful, effective, and personally rewarding.
