Brian Kagen pick: “At What Cost Our Spirit” by David Valadez

“Once when I asked my teacher how much he practiced a day, he answered, ‘I practice twenty-four hours a day.’ Wanting to only see if my training time was adequate to follow his example of skill in the art, I was not wholly ready for his answer. Much of it escaped me at the time. I could not totally see the fusion of life and practice that he was attempting to point me toward.

Brian Kagen is an avid web researcher with a particular interest in martial arts. His training background includes both judo and aikido. He has contributed hundreds of article links over the years for AJ readers.
