About this title

Synopsis:

These discussions about the most sophisticated level of all martial arts are the reflection of my lifelong journey into the mysterious world of human behavior, the journey I will call Wu Shan Fa (Five Mountain Path of the True Warrior Spirit). The text is not a definitive work by a grandmaster, but a collection of personal statements on perceptions gained thus far in my own training under several true masters. These are reflections that are finally being brought together after four decades of continuous study. The chapters contain the essence of hundreds of letters, notes, comments and lectures, both oral and written.... This book, therefore, is not really for beginners, for many sections are too abstract. This is not because beginners cannot grasp the concepts at all, but because they may attempt to claim more than they are able to understand without benefit of the experience that is acquired only through years of trial and error in training.... This art is not another style of Karate. Karate training may be likened to the training of the individual soldier to cover and fire and reflects to an ambush. The Wu Shan Fa is similar to generalship over the entire theater of operations. The art form I have come to call the Wu Shan Fa (Five Mountain Path) is the culmination for the past several years of my life's work as a teacher. It has been a monumental task to bring together such diverse martial systems as Saito Ninjitsu, Dragon Palm Pa Kua Chang, Aikido, Grande Tiger Gung Fu and T'ai Chi Ch'uan. The test has been to present the essence of each art, respecting each art's internal integrity while shaping a program that integrates the principles for students at all levels of experience. Little good has come from teachers who try to mishmash the martial arts, so I have attempted to avoid the obvious pitfalls by keeping in mind the greater goal which all of these arts have in common - the evolution of the true warrior spirit. - from book's Introduction
