Hyams did not enter the study of karate as a way of spiritual enlightenment; he began classes in to lose weight and work off hostility.

It was not until after a few years of lessons that he began to appreciate the deeper meaning of the martial arts. Twenty years later he arranged what he learned into short chapters which show th This little book shares the insights Joe Hyams experienced while studying karate over the years with such masters as Bruce Lee, Bong Soo Han, Ed Parker, and others. Twenty years later he arranged what he learned into short chapters which show the issue involved, the way he discovered it, and how he applied the teachings in his life away from the karate dojo.

He covers such things as visualization, patience, knowing your limits, instinctive action, facing fear, and breathing, among others. This is more of a personal introduction to what is beneath the surface, rather than an instruction manual. The student who is interested in the martial arts just to break bricks and put on a show needs to read this book to get a glimpse of what the sport is really all about. The student who is interested in the martial arts for the spiritual aspects needs to read this book to have a chance to see how these aspects changed the life of one man and could change their own.

This book was easy to read and friendly. I will leave you with a quote from the first chapter: I put this book forward to you, then, in the spirit of sharing what I have learned, and in the hope that some may wish to travel a similar path.

Perhaps by sharing my experiences I will also learn more, because that, too, is the way of Zen. View 1 comment. May 14, Graeme Rodaughan rated it it was amazing Shelves: non-fiction , martial-arts , operation-of-power , zen.

Before there was mindfulness there was Zen. After mindfulness there will still be Zen. A wonderfully accessible recounting of one man's experiences with Zen in the martial arts, and as always, Zen is entirely applicable to living life. Recommended for anyone looking for realistic examples of the application of Zen presence. Oct 27, Jon Nakapalau rated it it was amazing Shelves: martial-arts , favorites , cultural-studies. Nice introduction to this important concept.

If you have someone who is deciding to take martial arts classes for the first time give then this book Nov 26, Jake Danishevsky rated it it was amazing Shelves: own , read-martial-arts. We have all heard the saying 'Good things come in small packages'. Well, this book is an epitome of that saying. When I first picked up this book, I figured, I would read it in a day. It is only small pages and a very easy to read text, but I was wrong. Joe Hyams started out as a journalist and a writer.

He had no idea what martial arts or Zen is all about, until he started his first martial arts training about 25 years ago. He has studied under Ed Parks and the legend himself Bruce Lee.

Joe We have all heard the saying 'Good things come in small packages'. Joe has experienced a lot of difficulties in his martial arts training, but most of all is the art to control the impossible, to act without thinking, to move without moving, to use effort effortlessly, the art of ZEN. In this book Joe explains how learning Zen and understanding how to implement it, can help you in various aspects of life.

The way you can let your natural body flow without hesitation can help you in any task, such as business, sports, friendships and relationships. The book uses various examples and sayings from very recognized Zen masters. There are various quotes, which require some thinking and make you understand how the person should feel when they reach the stage of enlightenment.

One of them I particularly liked, which was: "Knowing others is wisdom, knowing yourself is Enlightenment. One of the nice stories is, when he is talking to Bruce Lee at their first meeting and Bruce tells him to forget anything he has ever learned, so Bruce can teach Joe the art of Jeet Kune Do. Joe seemed confused and questioned why he should do that, to which Bruce explained that when the cup is full it would spill out and would not be available for more information to flow into it. I have never read any information on Zen yet and this is my first, but I definitely want to learn more about the subject, and I just started reading another book in the same category.

I wasn't sure if this book would be of interest to someone, who is not involved in martial arts, so I showed it to my wife and she expressed some interest in wanting to read it. This is a great book and took me two weeks to read. I swallowed every word, I read each page carefully to make sure I don't miss any information. Don't be fooled by its size, it is a great book and a lot more information then it seems. I just wish there were 6 stars in a rating section.

Yes, it is that good. Nov 13, Bernadette rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Everyone! The first time I read this book, I wasn't "ready" to read it. The second time I read this book, I wasn't ready to "accept" it. The third time I read this book, I wasn't ready to stop reading it. I've decided this will be a book I carry around with me. Dec 28, Payam rated it it was amazing. There are many self-help books out there that want to transform you to a "better" you. This book is no different.

This book, presents the same concepts and same "laws" mentioned in other popular books meant to "transform" you. So, if it is not a unique book, why the 5 star rating? The stories in this book intrigue you and hold you due to their human touch. They are unique in that no other book has ever ventured into providing life lessons via Martial Arts examples. The fusion of a physical practi There are many self-help books out there that want to transform you to a "better" you.

The fusion of a physical practice with mental growth provides a holistic understanding of what it means to be human. Other books, particularly business books, will attempt to teach you via day-to-day examples and cognitive techniques. This book instead illustrates how you can interact and learn from the world via your body.

It is refreshing. It is unique. It is worth buying.
