|Samurai and Ninja: Martial Arts non-fiction.
“In Samurai and Ninja, author Antony Cummins separates myth from reality and shows why the Japanese were the greatest warriors of all time:
- He describes the Samurai and the Ninja as they really were in earlier times when battles raged across Japan—not in later times when war became obsolete and Japanese warriors became philosophers, scholars and courtiers.
- He describes the social context of the day and the feudal world into which the warriors were trained to fight and die for their lords.
- He exposes the essentially brutal nature of warfare in medieval Japan.”
_ Enzan (The Far Mountain): Martial arts fiction. “Chie Miyazaki is wild and spoiled—the pampered child of a cadet line of the imperial House of Japan. When she disappears in the United States accompanied by a slick Korean boyfriend, it sets off alarm bells among people in Japan’s security apparatus.The Japanese want the problem solved quietly. They seek out Connor Burke, prize student of the master martial arts sensei Yamashita. Burke suspects that he’s being used, but he accepts the assignment out of honor for his revered sensei.” _ The Raven’s Warrior: Martial arts fiction. “The Raven’s Warrior by Vincent Pratchett is the gripping tale of a Celtic warrior who survived a battle, life as a slave and eventually finds his destiny. It is about Vincent who is badly wounded in a battle in 900 AD. He is taken by Norse warriors on a long journey to the East where he is sold into slavery. Almost dying, a Chinese monk Mah Lin and his daughter Selah nursed him back to life. Under the monk’s tutelage, Vincent is renamed Arkthar, learns the Eastern ways of medicine, science, war and philosophy.” _ Scaling Force: Self-Defense DVD. In the Scaling Force DVD, Rory Miller and Lawrence A. Kane explain and demonstrate the full range of options, from skillfully doing nothing to applying deadly force. You will learn to understand the limits of each type of force, when specific levels may be appropriate, the circumstances under which you may have to apply them, and the potential cost of your decision, legally and personally.
