Sorry the Tensho link didn't work on yesterday's post.
Do a search for 'Zen Shorindo' with Nathan Johnson. He has four video clips and go to the third of four. This is Tensho in action. Again, I highly recommend his book, "Barefoot Zen".
Since I am recommending a book, here are a few more that have influenced my thinking and approach to the Martial Arts.
"Zen Mind, Beginner's Mind." by Shunryu Suzuki
"The Tao of Jeet Kune Do" by Bruce Lee
"Small Circle Ju-jitsu" by Wally Jay
"Returning to Silence" by Dainin Katagiri
"Constructive Living"..."Playing Ball on Running Water"..."Pools of Lodging for the Moon" by David K. Reynolds, PhD
"Book of Five Rings" by Miyamoto Musashi (Thomas Cleary translation)
"Tao Te Ching" by Lao Tzu
