When you hit rock bottom in life, there is only one place left to go, and that's up. This autobiographical account illustrates how a young man's life was changed forever when he discovered budo. From the back streets of one of Britain's toughest cities, Manchester, to the dojo of one of the world's leading masters of karate on the tiny island of Okinawa, the author's failures and hard won successes unfold in a story that is sure to capture the reader's imagination. Roaring Silence is, more than anything else, a story of hope. It is the record of a journey started, though not yet finished, covering a ten-year timeline from 1974 through to 1984. It reveals the first decade of a life, emerging from a world of violence and incarceration into a life of direction and appreciation. Through his encounter with the 'way' of karate the author learns how to change his anger into effort and his aggression into achievement. From his example comes the hope that such a transformation is possible in anyone. A revival of memories for those who have trained for many years, and an insight into times gone by for those new to the martial arts, everyone will benefit from the more subtle lessons uncovered within this book. Written with good humour and an eye to honesty, Roaring Silence will both educate and entertain, as it follows the early years of the author's lifelong journey. Martial Arts Publishing is delighted to bring you this newly rewritten third edition of a fascinating true story.
