This book explains how to produce and project mental energy as external power and how to create a radar system for martial artists.
You may have experienced the feeling of being watched;and when you looked around, you discovered that indeed someone had been watching you. You felt his intention with your sixth sense. This intention or desire is called Ki (Chi in Chinese), and it can be seen as an aura. Furthermore, you can make this power of desire, or Ki, stronger and use it as an external physical force.
If you can relax very deeply, you can be aware of things that you have never been aware of before. You can experience this external physical force.
1. gain a peaceful mind
2. gain stronger motivation to do things
3. use Ki as a human radar system to become more aware of your opponents
4. strengthen your phyical power without building up bigger muscles
5. be able to use Ki for healing
Sometime we meet people who say "there is no such thing as Ki." Such a statement may mean that they have not studied Ki; and off the top of their head, they made a decision to deny Ki.
Perhaps they do not want to admit it because Ki appears to be supernatural, something that cannot be proven. They think that their science is always right.
Maybe some people have studied Ki, but they have had poor instruction or were poor students; therefore, they have decided that since they cannot feel Ki it does not exist.
I believe that most people can experience this external physical force within an hour's lesson or by reading and experimenting with the several lessons within this book.

Shojiro Sugiyama is known by his colleagues as a maverick. He teaches traditional Karate in a very contemporary way. Even though he teaches traditional Karate, almost every one of his approaches to training are differ from traditional methods. His intent is to make Karate easier to comprehend and learn.
Unfortunately many Karate instructors us a "Monkey see Monkey do" approach to teaching - Sugiyama doesn't. If a college is a place where one goes to learn how to think then the Sugiyama Dojo (school) is where one goes to teach oneself Karate through thought and reason. Sugiyama encourages questions and debate. His job as teacher is to help his students gain a better understanding of Karate and guide their learning so that they can improve. He believes that eventually every student should become better than their teacher.
Similarly, Sugiyama's books reflect his unique approach to Karate. His books break new ground and continue to develop the art of Karate. He believes that just as the student should surpass the teacher his books will eventually become obsolete (or collector's items) as new books are written. This constant drive toward innovation and development marks Sugiyama as a one of a kind Karate instructor.
Shojiro Sugiyama was born in Tokyo in 1929. In 1954, after training in two other styles of Karate, he began studying with the Japan Karate Association (Yotsuya), Japan. In 1963, he was invited to come to Chicago to teach Karate. He continues to teach at his dojo located on the north side of Chicago.
