From the Author:

Praise for The Way to Black Belt:

"Kane and Wilder not only succeed in defining a a functional path to attaining yudansha level they also effectively bring back meaning and lost value to this important journey. In fact, it is so good I wish I had written it myself." -- Hanshi Patrick McCarthy, 8th dan black belt

"I couldn't help but think how much faster I would have advanced and how much further along I'd be today if I'd have read this book and applied this knowledge at the beginning of my journey into martial arts years ago." -- Alain Burrese, J.D.


"Make no mistake, the book is not offering a short-cut to the coveted black belt, but rather a clear guide to the correct path--not the easy way, not the hard way, but simply the right way to achieve success." -- Goran Powell, 4th dan black belt

"While this book targets students who are studying to achieve their black belt, it at the same time illuminates a path far beyond this limited goal." -- Christopher Caile, 6th dan black belt

"Reading this book will help anyone for whom the goal of a black belt seems nearly impossible to consider that maybe you're wrong. Not only do I feel inspired, but I now have a ton of great ideas and advice on how to make the most of my training along the way." -- Laura Weller

"Serious martial artists will benefit from having this book on their shelves, it is a terrific resource." -- Steve Perry
