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.

Rhinoceros Zen

Brooks, Jeffrey M. "Rhinoceros Zen: Zen Martial Arts and the path to Freedom." eCommunities LLC/ 2005.

Review: Well written and wonderful account of one's travels in the martial arts direction with additional insight toward the Zen aspects.

One of the favorites in my library. I have read it twice over the years since it was published. Gaining views and thoughts from as many as possible provides the brain data for retrieval and analysis where it comes into play for practice and eventually application. Well worth the few bucks to purchase.
