Black Belt in One Year - A Manifesto
by David Parks-Kennedy
Here is what I want to "manifest" in this book. My goal is to wake people up to the fact that just because "everyone" says something is so, that doesn't necessarily make it so. This book is based on my first hand experience as a teacher. The goal is to "make manifest" what has been ingnored, forgotten or never really understood in the west regarding how the martial arts really work.
