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".
