Recommended reading for the martial arts. This is my personal library list. I practice Okinawan Te or "Ryukyu Ti." My system is derived from two others, one being the main influence of Shorin-ryu and the second Goju-ryu. The branch under Shorin-ryu is Isshin-ryu as developed by Shimabuku Tatsuo Sensei.

I wanted to create a library reference blog where I can provide a listing of the books I have in my library, present and past (past in that some have been lost in transit over the years). I will provide a graphic, if available, a short description, if available, and the bibliography. When possible a link to Amazon will be provided.

Becoming a Complete Martial Artist

Sutrisno, Tristan, MacYoung, Marc and Gordon, Dianna. "Becoming a Complete Martial Artist: Error Detection in Self Defense and the Martial Arts." Lyons Press. Connecticut. 2005.

Review: This one should reside adjacent to the karate way by Dave Lowry on your shelf. It must be noted that Mr. MacYoung and his wife Dianna both Martial Artists and both "professionals" who have the experience to walk the walk when they talk the talk. This book is also critical to a fledgling karate person starting out. It is also a great book for the experienced karate-ka or martial artist.

Marc MacYoung Sensei, Tristan Sutrisno Sensei and Dianna MacYoung Sensei have put together a great tome on the complete martial artists - highly recommended.
