The theory of theory

This book has very little of direct practical value, rather it is a book describing how to dissect your own style of martial arts. It isn't bad, it just isn't as useful as the more directly applicable volumes.

Great Content

Another great book from Guy. The content was both well thought out and insightful. The sections on structure and flow are particularly helpful.

I am a swordsman, writer, and entrepreneur. I research and teach medieval and Renaissance Italian swordsmanship, blog about it, write books about it, have developed a card game to teach it (which involved founding another company, and crowdfunding), and run The School of European Swordsmanship.
