Choi and Master Tom Thurston succinctly and effectively present the essence of what it means to be a true and dedicated traditional martial artist. Through an eloquent balance of poetry, parables, insights, quotations and muses, Choi and Thurston clearly reveal that becoming and remaining a true and complete traditional martial artist requires more than just the mastery of physical movements and fighting strategies. It is not the style of art that decides the degree of success a practitioner experiences. Rather, it is the practitioner’s individual strength of will, coupled with his or her noble and persistent desire to achieve the highest, broadest and most positive results that we can on this plane of existence that, in the end, makes the difference. “An authentic compilation of traditional martial arts lore and philosophy that includes both the wisdom of the ages and sound advice for the present and the future. It should be required reading by all sincere traditional martial arts practitioners and teachers” • Grand Master Hud Huddleston, Sr., Founder and head of the Korean Hwarang Martial Arts Federation. “A wonderful book that each of us should read the first day of every spring, summer, winter and fall. Every martial artist from every style will find pride and motivation from it” • Michael Stephen McGuire, World Karate Association Professional Canadian Middleweight Kickboxing Champion, 1981, 1982
