    Default Feeding The Budo Mind

    Budo isn't just the dry practice of techniques. There is history, philosophy, ethics, etiquette, psychology and more. It's a means of growing the body and mind. Practice feeds the body, but how do you feed your budo mind? My budo blog this week is about that.

    Good one, Peter- I'd agree with most of those. I'd add Musashi. For a similar modern approach I'd say read the Marine Corps manual Warfighting - based in the teachings of Boyd which were in turn based on Lao Zi, Sun Zi, and others.

    I'm not familiar with the Marine Corps manual. Thanks! I'll have to look that one up. Musashi is good. I'll have to do another reading list sometime so I can include him.

    Hello,

    As for karate A. Asato (18281906) recommended in an interview published in 1914 the Chinese
    Classics, military books etc. in general, and Suntzŭ, Wu-tzŭ, the Liu-tao and the San-leh, local books etc. in particular.

    I would add the texts of the karate pioneers as important readings.

    Regards,

    Henning Wittwer

    I would also add MCWP 6-11 Leading Marines as another modern example.

    Regards,

    Greg Quaresma
