“One of the best books I’ve read in years, inviting and compelling. Jeff Brooks moves effortlessly from martial arts to Buddhism to consciousness studies, self-transformation, and related fields in this wide-ranging and Illuminating study that has much to offer both novice explorers and veteran practitioners. A splendid achievement.”
— Philip Zaleski, Editor, The Best Spiritual Writing series
— Co-author, The Fellowship: The Literary Lives of the Inklings: J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, Owen Barfield, Charles Williams.
Jeff Brooks has transformed countless lives thru his practice and teaching of martial arts, and through his books and articles. He has dedicated his life to revitalizing the practice of karate as a pathway to living a fully human life. His compassionate understanding of what it means to be fully human and his ability to shine a light on the way to find depth, meaning and skill, is needed now more than ever. True Karate Dō provides a way forward like nothing else I’ve ever read. I hope you will pick it up and read it now.
