A compilation of columns that appeared between 1988 and 1995 in Martial Arts Training magazine.

The 41 essays in this book are inspired by the teachings and wisdom of the ancients who devoted their lives to instruct others. Their ideas are preserved in this volume to inspire and guide readers in training and in life for years to come.
