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.

The Lone Samurai

Wilson, William Scott. "The Lone Samurai: The Life of Miyamoto Musashi." Kodansha USA. 2004.

Review: A library would not be complete if nothing were on its shelves about "The Sword Saint," Miyamoto Musashi. I started withe the fictional rendition many years ago and then found the book. A complete joy to read.
