Karate Philosophy, Karate Spirit Jan 13, 2003
This volume is composed of a collection of columns originally penned by Randall Hassell for Black Belt Magazine during the early 1980's. Although Hassell is a Shotokan old timer, I certainly wouldn't limit this book to those who practice only Shotokan, or even just Japanese style karate. The concepts and personal experiences detailed by the author are universal throughout martial arts study. Each chapter is lively and covers a philosophical idea. Hassell recounts actual events which are not only fun to read about, but get their point across. There is no vague misticism here, you will find plenty of honesty and introspection--beneficial to us all. This is another winner from Damashi, of benefit to any martial artist who enjoys reading about our arts.
