A collection of interviews and quotes from a broad spectrum of famous martial artists, this book gives rare insights into the physical, mental and spiritual path one must take to achieve the status of a master. JKD icon Don Inosanto, kickboxing champ Bill "Superfoot" Wallace, Eskrima msater Edgar Sulite, grappling legend "Judo" Gene LaBell, Wing Chun master Wong Shun Leung - just to name a few - share their thoughts and experiences in the martial arts. These interviews are unusually candid and revealing - a reflection of a now-vanished era when martial arts were new to America and when training and tournament competition often brought together the pioneers of different martial styles.
