Tiger Dragon – The Essential and Fundamental Physics and Metaphysics of Martial Arts Training
This book will not teach you the martial arts. No book will. However, it can give you a deep insight and understanding into the rich experience of what the martial arts are. It merges my acumen in western philosophy and eastern tradition with the understanding gained from working directly with a Grandmaster into a unique history and explanation related to the essential and fundamental physics and metaphysics of martial arts training.

It is perhaps an opportunity to deeply reflect on the true nature, distinction, and interconnectedness regarding benefit and use, potential and manifestation, as well as tiger and dragon. (PDF For All Devices)
