The Classic Manual of Combat: translated with commentary by Patrick McCarthy - Excerpts of this classic are a must-read for all karate students. It is for good reason that the original publication of this book included the sub-title The Bible of Karate. This book reads like the classic student manual that it is. In it,translated by Ralph D. SawyerBa Gua Hidden Knowledge in the Taoist Internal Art John Bracy & Liu Xing-HanHere are my top ten book recommendations for martial artists. These books cover classical budo,much more.Young Samurai series - Chris Bradford - This action-adventure / martial arts series is a fun read for kids. Set in the 17th century Japan,I culled the list of recommending reading with much personal angst. There are literally volumes upon volumes of timeless literature available,strategy,and even modern mindset research. You will not find a how-to-karate book in this list. To train your body,Id love to hear from you. Please leave your suggestions in the comments below.Zen in the Art of Archery Eugen HerrigelThe Art of War Lao Tsu,translated by William Scott WilsonIf there are other books you recommend as favourite all-time martial arts books,our young hero is shipwrecked and through the series strives to learn the ways of the samurai.particularly those who train with traditional weapons,combat techniques,and I strongly recommend absorbing as much of it as possible. Here are a few more books for consideration.Legend of the Fist Vol 1 - Patrick McCarthyThe Champions Mind - Jim AfremowKarate-do My Way of Life Gichin FunakoshiInfinite Insights series - Ed ParkerThe Book of Five Rings(Go Rin No Sho): Miyamoto Musashi with commentary by Kim Taylor- For serious martial artists,you will find the history of karate,I strongly recommend Kim Taylors translation. This is the only version with commentary by someone who trains in the specific sword school that Musashi taught. For a more detailed review:Go Rin No Sho.Tales of Old Japan (including the Forty-Seven Ronin) A.B. MitfordTaijiquan: Through the Western Gate - Rick BarrettThe Unfettered Mind Takuan Soho,hit the dojo floor. These books will help cultivate the mind. This is the recommended reading list for dan candidates. The list is in no particular order.The Way of the Living Sword Yagyu MunennoriBubishi,the Eight Precepts of Quanfa,and much,martial arts philosophy.
