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.

Meditations of Violence

Miller, Rory Sgt. "Meditations of Violence: A Comparison of Martial Arts Training & Real World Violence" YMAA Publishing. 2008.

Review: If you read my previous review for "Facing Violence" you already know the value I place on Sgt. Miller's expose' into the world of violence.

These are two different books. Don't assume because you read one the other is not  necessary. Sgt. Miller covers violence from two different perspectives. I also recommend his other eBook's as well as his blog, "Chiron."
