This popular selling book has been available on Amazon since 2007 and has recieved many favorable reviews. The book represents the personal memoir of Kyoshi Vellucci and details what is is like to train in a traditional karate dojo in Okinawa. Straightforward and full of amusing recollections and anecdotes, several thousand copies of this book have sold to dedicated martial artists around the world.

Here is the blurb from the publisher:

This is the inspiring story of an ex-Marine who sought out the one form of martial arts that would polish his mind and strengthen his spirit- Shorin Ryu Karate. Finding the right dojo would lead him to Okinawa and a Sensei (teacher), a seventh degree black belt, who would show him what lay beyond the pain, beyond the exhaustion. He was taught Nintai: the art of patience, perseverance, and endurance.

“The reason there are mirrors in the dojo is to allow the student to always face his greatest opponent: himself. It is the aim of the true karate practitioner to overcome the ego, and focus on the higher goal of unifying the mind, body, and spirit. In Okinawa, it is the Sensei’s responsibility to help the student become humble enough to attain this objective.”

When Nintai is accomplished, one can pursue a higher spiritual path.
