Sale edition. Reflections on the everyday problems, questions, and experiences encountered by students of the Japanese martial arts - written by an accomplished Western sword master and martial artist.

The study of Budo, or the Japanese martial arts, is a lifelong path toward perfection. Lowry, a sword master who has practiced and taught Budo for over forty years, addresses the myriad issues, vagaries, and inconsistences that arise for students of karate-do, judo, kendo, kenjutsu, aikido, and iaido as their training develops.

He examines such questions as: What does rank really mean? What is the relationship between the student and teacher, and what should one expect from the other? How do you correctly and sensitively practice with someone less experienced that you? What does practice look like as one ages? Why do Budo arts put such an emphasis on etiquette and decorum? and many others.

Lowry also gives practical advice for beginning and advanced students on improving structural integrity in posture and movement, focusing under stress, stances and preparatory actions before engaging with an opponent, and recognizing a good teacher from a bad one.
