Would love to know what everyone is reading at present.

On my nightstand I'm reading "Chinese Fast Wrestling for Fighting: The Art of San Shou Kuai Jiao Throws, Takedowns, & Ground-Fighting"

http://www.amazon.com/Chinese-Fast-Wrestling-Fighting-Ground-Fighting/dp/1886969493

It seems a really good read and is very relevant to the style that I practice and teach. I'm surprised as a Chinese Style is very similar in application to a Japanese Style. Iíve always wondered how Ashihara came up with His Style when he was a one of Oyama Sosaiís Senior Kyokushin Shihans. It is believed that Ashihara Kancho visited China for a spell and this could be ďthe missing linkĒ

Also got "Martial Arts After 40" to read as Iíve accepted Iím not as young as I used to be anymore.
