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.

Drills by Rory Miller

Miller, Rory. “Drills: Training for Sudden Violence.” Amazon Digital Services. 2011

Review: We all are hearing the view that it is necessary to self-defense that our training has to take a shift and that shift is about reality based training that will do the job when sudden violence hits. Rory Miller, in this book, takes you there and it is a necessary trip if you want to learn, teach, train and practice for self-defense. 

Needless to say, Rory Miller has once again hit the ball out of the part - another home run! Yeaaaaa! Don’t let your SD training suffer and don’t allow your students to find out the hard way that what they think they know actually doesn’t work. Mr. Miller takes you on your way with this book and his books all provide you with sources for hands-on reality based no bullshit courses (coined by some famous author who I can’t remember - Eisler I think).

Add this to your library, you won’t regret it. :-)
