Polished Steel - our new dojo book

 

Polished Steel, the first volume of Lessons from the Dojo gleaned from training with Lao Tze (or Sensei in the book), is now available on Amazon in digital and print format. 

 

It is an engaging book of short stories and haiku that captures the essence of training in a traditional dojo and focuses on the important life-lessons that one learns.

 

Most students are interested in self-defense or fitness when they sign up for martial arts classes, but it is the allure of personal self-development that keeps them training year after year. Polished Steel brings some of these lessons to life as you follow several students’ training and development under their Sensei.

 

Polished Steel: Lessons from the Dojo was written to help support Sensei after a devastating stroke in September 2015. It also serves as a tribute to a special teacher and helps to immortalize some valuable lessons.
