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.

FTW Self Defense - Hardcore Self Defense - Warrior Wisdom

Review: Unorthodox in his writing but interesting, even spell binding in its presentation. It is a definite addition to anyone’s self-defense library but my warning would be to take the presentation in all its color with a grain of salt, i.e., not as to content and meaning but the method of articulation as in “hard and rough and no holds barred language.” This guys writes a lot like the other authors of self-defense, no bullshit tell it like it is models.
