Igensho: The Book of Dignity, is a short work on martial art. It is unique in several respects: 1. Igensho posits what may be the first and only serviceable definition of exactly what martial art is, and the only clear explanations of what it is for, and how it works. 2. It presents a simple, effective method by which the reader can govern his or her life, utilizing the same basic, general principles by which nation states are governed. The principles are few and simple. The applications are extensive and numerous. It shows clearly that the essential applications of martial art extend far beyond those of close combat. Moreover it shows that the art is accessible to all persons, and may be applied by them everywhere and at all times, to advantage. This includes everyone from military and law enforcement personnel, to practitioners of all systems of martial art, to children and the elderly. 3. The method enables the practitioner to do four things: first, to avoid dangerous problems. Secondly, to solve unavoidable problems efficiently if possible, without recourse to violence. Thirdly, to respond appropriately to violence with the judicious use of force. Lastly, to be aware of the consequences of using the force option, and to prepare for them. 4. Finally, the book debunks a number of counterproductive myths and misconceptions about martial art, resulting from the misinterpretation of languages, from cross cultural confusion, and from general ignorance. Igensho can be invaluable to any reader because the principles of the art are fundamental, universal, and perennial.
