Book Review: Zen in the Martial Arts by Joe Hyams

This short work is made up of a collection of vignettes illustrating elements of martial and Zen philosophy. Using his experiences training under of veritable who’s who of martial artists including Bruce Lee, Hyams shares the philosophical lessons he received. Rather than being a text book on Zen or the martial arts, it is an introduction to the application of these philosophies in your life. Bottom line: it is a great light read that I recommend wholeheartedly.
