SO far wasn't too keen on the first chapter '..in the Prison', it didn't need to be to discriptive, but I reading it 'til the end, I also got 'Cry of the tiger' to read which is the second book in the series

Trust me, man, it gets better. Wait until he starts claiming that his life was a kung fu B-movie.

I read a bit more, and I think so far this man, well, I think he might have schooled in the Chinese version of Frank Duxs school. Its a good novel though.



I asked my instructor, and he says in all the years he's trained he's never heard of the Kumite in Hong Kong

Guys,

I have now read the book and yes there a few topics, which I can't really say are totally 100% true, but I don't think there is a man or woman out there who doesn't have a couple of white lies in the cupboard. I am happy to say I actually quite like the book. I would be happy to pass on this book. 'Cry of the Tiger' is the children's version, which I have given to my daughter to read.

Shifu Tony, I think, wasn't actually looking a condemning martial arts and its ethos, just the psychology of becoming 'one with the style'. I would say he was trying to show and relate to 1000's of MA's out there who don't have 'feelings' etc and enjoy the maiming etc of their opponents. As opposed to the 99.9% of us who are good Martial Artists and believe that to be a good Martial Artist is to be a good Christian, Muslim, Sikh, Buddhist Shintoist etc. to honour and respect all life etc.

I have sent a mail to the website asking some questions which I know I'll get the answers soon.

To finalise I give Tony my full and deepest respects for being a Christian and for reaching out to those who need faith in what they do etc. I would love to met the man to shake him by the hand and say thank you.
