Richard Andrew Kingabout this book: Martial Arts is life. There is nothing in martial arts training that does not have an application to our day-to-day living. Verily, Martial Arts offer a cornucopia of life principles, skills and strategies for developing and living a well-balanced and successful existence.
Arguably, the general perception of Martial Arts is one of fighting and physical combat. However, for a person to seek only fighting skills from Martial Arts training would be like a person going to a well to fill a bucket with water but returning with only a spoon full. Such a waste . . . and a tragedy.
Indeed, the mundane description of Martial Arts focuses on warfare, but the more exalted emphasis is on personal and spiritual development. Unfortunately, this great aspect is more often ignored than understood. After all, how often do we hear martial artists discussing life principles and concepts? Almost never.
Yet, the full scope of martial arts training teaches respect, discipline, self-control, self-reliance, independence, courage, strength, balance, patience, perseverance, creativity, determination, dedication, responsibility, flexibility of mind, body and spirit; power, concentration, character, commitment, consistency, discretion, practicality, efficiency, adjustability, humility, and much more. How are any of these life principles and concepts not applicable to living a successful life? In fact, we cannot be successful human beings without embracing these precepts.
"The Black Belt Book of Life – Secrets of a Martial Arts Master" exists to expand the ideal of what Martial Arts is by sharing critical life principles, strategies, skills and tactics via forty fundamental and time-tested concepts, concepts which elevate one from the mundane trenches of a commonplace combatant to an educated, well-rounded, substantive and evolved human being.
