I really like this book. The only reason i didnt go through it in one go is because i have so much reading to do (work & study wise). And i am trying to savour it a bit. Also recently bought Natan Ligos book and that is much less of a good read then the Nicolas Pettas book. Both are good, but the Pettas one is just much better. Definately worth purchasing.

I am also stunned by the differences seeing both were at honbu as uchi desi at the same time. They dont flat out cancel eachother out but the differences are noticable and I am starting to wonder who is telling the "true-er" story.

Wonderful... I was talking to our own K4L Ikken on Skype the other day; he also was at Honbu as an Ushi Deshi together with Nicolas Pettas Sensei & a few others...
We'll see how this can develop into a full blown story

Cristina Oyama (Sosai's daughter) has publicly stated that Natan Ligos (she refers to him as NL on her blog) never completed the 1000days and quit the programme. She also went on to say that Natan is making/was untrue statements about his time at the Honbu and his 'qualifications'

It's all on her blog, but as none of us were there at that time I guess we all have to work out for ourselves what's fluff and whats true...!!!

My Journey in Karate by Joko Ninomiya has been an absolutely incredible read, I can honestly say it's the most inspiring book I have ever read and since I completed it about three weeks ago I have "re-doubled" my training efforts. His in depth description of his life brings the human inside to light instead of just an amazing master who you could never really relate to.

This books has taught me that we can only go as high as our dreams are and that when we tell ourselves that we can't, thats a lie, it's the weak part yelling "stop it's too hard, I hurt! ect.." Once we affirm to conquer and achieve victory over our own low self esteem and inner weaknesses, then we can become champions of life.

If you haven't read it please do!

just finished Storm Dragon by James Cobb - with no more Ludlums or von Lustbader's or Alastair McLean - Cobb's sea stories are becoming a interesting read ...

Martial Arts Nutrition - A precision guide to fueling your fighting edge
by Teri Tom

Just quickly read through this - Daniel borrowed a copy
This looks like a seriously good book - not for those not interested in the hard yards regarding diet and nutrition
She has worked with Manny Pacquiou and Amir Khan and these stories alone are worth a read (the Amir Khan one was very interesting)

I will be picking up a copy for my reference library

Hi, Amir Khan as in the Bollywood actor?

Then, just started reading Clive Cussler's "Treasure of Khan" - a Dirk Pitt novel
