Anyone like reading MA?

I suggest:

-The five rings, by Miyamoto Musashi
-The art of war, by Sun Tzu
-Bushido-way of the samurai, by Tsunetomo Yamamoto
-anything by Jiddu Kristnamurti
-Tao of Jeet kune do, (not sure who wrote this )
-Zen and the art of archery, (not sure, HONESTLY)

Any body got anymore suggestions?

To mods: I hope this doesn't count as advertising If it does please delete this and send me a pm

Not to worry...it's not advertising.

Check out the forums at the bottom of the Main Index page (Martial ARts Media), and there is a thread or two on "What ARe You Reading" in the Asian ARts section.

Im sure if you could you wold all want to punch me cause I just bought a book on ninjitsu

Its called:

Ninjutsu
The Art of Invisibility
Facts, legends and techniques

by Donn F.Draeger

I had a choice of three on the book shelf, this seemed the least crappy.

Dont be mad, I couldnt help it...

I would add "What Is Shorinji Kempo?" in English, and in Japanese, "Wagahai wa Kuro-Obi/Burakku Beruto De-aru" and "Shorinji Kempo no Susume".

No. Shorinji Kempo is unique. The founder was a Japanese who studied in China for many years, but the codification, classification, methodology and syllabus are all his own.
Try here for some more background.
BTW, it's Shorinji Kempo, with an "m".
