The following is a small sample of the literature I have read over the years of my life and study in martial arts. All of the books on my reading list gave me essential insights at the time I had read them that I was able to apply to my life, my training and my betterment. Any true martial artist and decent man should make it his mission to constantly grow, learn and improve. I like to think that women need no such improvement but anyone can find a better version of themself, even if they can create life. Please do enjoy the many wonderous works listed and keep them close. As my Grandfather often told me "My son if you have a book, you have a friend."
