- A Brief History of Karate: Part II of III By Owen Johnston
While Karate was primarily organized in Shuri and Naha, Tomari originally had little direct influence. This is because, at that time, Tomari was inhabited by a simple people; it was a city of fishermen. Tomari had its share of notable masters, however, with Kosaku Matsumora (1829-1898), Kokan Oyadomari (1827-1905) and Gikei Yamazato (1835-1905) the most notable. They studied under Annan, as well as Ason, a Chinese sergeant.It is said in Okinawan tradition that Annan, a pirate, was a castaway f…

- Are the Martial Arts Still Under Development? By Peter Sundbye
What is a Martial Art?A martial art can be defined as any skill that can be applied in warfare. The word martial means "military." So traditionally, a martial art is a military art. The first things that usually come to mind when discussing modern martial arts are leaping, kicking, punching, blocking, inverting elbows, twisting necks, throwing, and weapon fighting. But also horsemanship, javelin throwing, archery, spear fighting, halberd fighting, wrestling, knife fighting, rifle, shotgun and …
- The Benefits of Martial Arts Training By Clint Leung
As any martial arts practitioner will tell you, there are multiple benefits in martial arts training. Of course, the most obvious benefit is a knowledge of self defense which is one of the major reasons why the martial arts were developed in the first place. Knowing how to defend oneself and loved ones in a potentially dangerous situation is an asset in today’s world just as it was hundreds of years ago. Unlike often portrayed in the movies, martial arts are not just about fighting. Many p…
- The Commodore Written by Patrick O'Brian
'Thick weather in the chops of the Channel and a dirty night, with the strong north-east wind bringing rain from the low sky and racing cloud: Ushant somewhere away on the starboard bow, the Scillies to larboard, but never a light, never a star to be seen; and no observation for the last four days.'
Captain Jack Aubrey and Doctor Stephen Maturin have returned to England from the South Sea. Jack is welcomed home by his happy family, but Stephen's family is in peril. His young daughter Brigid is …
- Review of The Broken Fountain
The Broken Fountain by Thomas Belmonte is a powerful book that shows greatly the struggle and life of the poor class. It gives a strong sense of urban life through the story of a Neapolitan neighborhood. It goes beyond that, though. There is much more than a gritty street and rundown buildings. There is much more than the poor people walking by and emotion filled families. There is an underlying theme of humanity, of justice and injustice, that the reader can not help but be touched by.
- The Rich Jerk Revealed
The Rich Jerk is the one of the hottest e-books on the net and I think one of the best I have read. He uses a different type of marketing and are making some people very mad, marketing with an attitude. He does make sure you understand he is rich, lazy, and obnoxious and not to waste his time right from the start.
I ran across his website when I was looking for some ideas to improve my website and his type of marketing caught my attention. As I read more of his sales page I just got more interes…
- BUST THE MUST SMELL IN YOUR BOOKS
You know how books that you've picked up at yard sales and the like have that musty odor? Here are some methods I've heard of to get rid of the smell, assuming they aren't actually moldy or mildewed:
* Sprinkle a little baking soda between pages of the book, once you've ascertained it is thoroughly dry. After several days, brush out the powder.

* Wrap your book in used laundry dryer sheets and place in a plastic bag for a we…
- Leggo my Ego
Caution: move slowly through this review and give the whole message a chance, especially if you are a die hard Eckhart Tolle fan. I am still a big fan, but this time, there is something amiss and I'm left feeling like I want to say 'Leggo my Ego.'
'A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life's Purpose' is Eckhart Tolle's latest eye opening book and other probable hit on the best seller list. I found his latest book even more filled with great teaching and also, in some parts, quite a bit more difficult …

- Randori - the Philosophy and the Practice By Campbell Dunstan
By far the most common misconception associated with randori is the notion that it is just club-based or friendly competition. It is not hard to see why this is so and why randori very frequently degenerates into either Uchi Komi (repetitive fitness and fluidity building), or Shiai (score orientated competition).Let us state from the outset that the term "degenerate" should NOT be taken to mean that these practices (Uchi Komi and Shiai) are lesser pastimes, but that they are quite distinct a…

- The Worst Journey in the World, Apsley Cherry Garrard - Book Review
This is the book acclaimed by those who do the acclaiming as the bar-none most compelling tale of people having a bad time, ever told. Paul Theroux describes it as the best adventure book he's ever read. Couple that with the perennial appearances on the 'best this' and 'best that' lists and it becomes clear that it deserves considerable consideration by those wishing to be well-read.
There is no doubt Garrard had a horrible time of it. Nor can it be argued that this narrative is anything but com…

- eBooks: The Only Books?
Way back when the internet first learned to walk there was a famous aphorism encouraging it as it took each unsteady step: 'Information wants to be free.' Well, while the internet is not old by any stretch of the imagination, it is now upright, sturdy, and racing ahead, two legs strong and insisting: 'Information wants to be on the internet!' The resounding boom of this proclamation initially caused other information-related industries--namely print media and publishing--to backpedal or just pla…
- A Brief History of Karate - Part I of III By Owen Johnston
Karate-do, in all its various forms, finds its origins in one place - the Ryukyu islands off the coast of Japan. What we know as one of the most widely practiced systems of self defense and discipline in the world is the result of centuries of development. While Karate-do was introduced as a code of ethics to a peacetime America only a few decades ago, it began through the need of Ryukyu natives for better methods of fighting.There are a few theories about the origins of the fighting arts that…

- I'm Very Angry
I'm very angry because I'm sick and tired of what I see as deception and dishonesty within the literary community. It's been going on for far to long and nobody seems to want to pay attention to it or to care about it.
I love my publisher which is Publishamerica and it's a first rate Publisher however I have seen firsthand with my own eyes individual authors that meet on discussion boards asking each other to do reviews of one anothers books that most always turn out to be four or five star revi…

When I first came across 'The Rich Jerk' website I thought what everyone else did. Here's another scammer trying to make some money with a worthless book. I was about to close when I actually stopped to realise that the writing style was something I hadn't encountered before. It had attitude. After doing some research, I found out that this 'Rich Jerk' was actually for real, and becoming more and more popular. He must know something! After all, he had shown us impressive earnings in his sales le…
- The Coach and Win-Win Partnerships: Why you should read these Coaching Books
The role of leadership is changing because of technological advances, increased competition (both domestic and international), and the desire of employees to be more involved in managing their own work. Now and in the future, leaders deal with a more educated, talented group of employees who have definite interests and aspirations. People can have the greatest influence on productivity, excellence, and quality, but only if leaders can empower employees and give them more autonomy while maintaini…

- C S Lewis' Cosmic Trilogy
With the recent release of The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe at the cinema, I thought I would write a review of another, little known series of books by C.S.Lewis - The Cosmic Trilogy.
Even before the television and cinema adaptations of the Narnia series, the Cosmic Trilogy was much less widely known; and in my opinion, rightly so, for I believe the series suffers from a fundamental flaw.
Much fuss has been made over the overtly Christian symbology of the Narnia boo…

Don't Hide Your Light

Book Review: A History of the World in 6 Glasses
World History is a long and complex topic. Though many accomplished authors such as Bill Bryson and H. G. Wells have attempted to condense history into a single book, very few have succeeded. There is just too much of it. Attempts to boil down the last 10,000 years have resulted in either superficial books with very little depth, or great textbook like tombs too inaccessible for the casual reader.
Happily, A History of the World in 6 Glasses by Tom Standage succeeds where others have failed. Sta…
Agatha Christie's 'Towards Zero'
The queen of crime thriller dame Agatha Christie is one of my
most favorite authors. I like her novels and stories for two
reasons. First, the plots of the novels and the stories
and the other is that her characters and plots can be fitted
anywhere irrespective of time and place. Sometimes i also
feel that they are known to me. I can find them in everyday
She had written 76 crime novel and short stories. Although
'Murder of Roger Acroyd' is considered as her masterpiece,

Book Review: The Straw Bale House
If we learned anything from childhood, it was not to build our houses out of straw. After all, that big bad wolf was just waiting to blow it down. But that was before the world knew the numerous advantages of using compressed straw bales, as a key building material as outlined in the book The Straw Bale House. This easy to understand book is comprehensive in its education on how to build with straw- so that no wolf (or tornado for that matter) can ever blow it down. The book covers why and how t…
Are You Combat Fit? By Tim Webb
If you are looking to compete in submission grappling then one of the main factors to consider and improve is fitness. This, in and of itself, is a vast subject.Now, when I first began to compete, my supplementary training was primarily weight training and long slow distance running. In terms of strength development I scoffed at anything else other than weight training.However when sparring with friends and training partners, while initially strong, I soon found myself running out of steam.
