New ‘Best of Ikigai’ Ebook (With Bonus Articles)

The funny thing about blogging is that articles have a tendency to fade into oblivion. Even the strongest content can slide out of sight, and that is a shame. The goal of this ebook is to provide readers with 20 of the best articles I have created and 4 bonus articles that are completely unique to this ebook. Topics range all over, but are designed to help martial artists of all backgrounds find new ways to explore and improve in their art.

This ebook can be purchased with credit card (no accounts required) or through Paypal account. To buy, click ‘add to cart’, then click the yellow ‘check out with paypal’ button that will pop up. Both credit card and Paypal transactions are processed through the secure Paypal website.

What’s Inside?

I have always tried to create article-style blog posts that have a lot of meat to them. That approach has lent itself to the creation of this book where I was able to collect the articles that I thought were the most significant or had the most positive impact on readers.

Some topics include:

  • Expanding your ability to decipher bunkai in kata
  • Real world tips for increasing your self defense abilities
  • Philosophical considerations regarding the purpose and direction of traditional martial arts
  • Tales of old martial arts masters and their contributions
  • Discovering ways to improve your body, mind, and spirit through training

Also included are 4 new articles that I created specifically for this ebook. They range from tactical advice on creating a self defense “touch reflex”, to commentary on how we can return to the old methods of Okinawa using the tools right in front of us.

Why Charge For This One?

You may have noticed that I decided to charge for this ebook while I offered my previous one for free. This was a pure time-commitment decision. If I wish to continue dedicating significant effort to this website and to the creation of unique ebooks (which I definitely want to), I have to make sure that I do not neglect my financial obligations in “the real world”. Although I’d like to do everything for free, I’m going to need to charge small amounts from time to time out of necessity.

On the plus side, charging has inspired me to include all of the bonus material here that you won’t be able to get anywhere else. My plan is to always make these products worth your while!

A Prize-Inducing Thanks For Your Support

There are about 80 trillion websites on the internet, and I feel fortunate to have you visit my little corner. If you choose to support the site and purchase this ebook, it is my plan to create some fun ‘thank you’ rewards. In the near future I intend to conduct two giveaways – one for anyone who buys the book (I’ll have a complete list of receipts), and one for anyone who reviews or links to the book from their own website.

In the meantime, if you’d like to help get the word out, here are some options:
