Eye of the Hurricane - Tales of the Empty-Handed Masters

SILVER BENJAMIN FRANKLIN AWARD FOR EXCELLENCE IN INDEPENDENT PUBLISHING

Can you discover the secret in the riddle of the Empty-Handed Masters?

"What is it that...
You cannot see if you look,
You cannot hear if you listen
You cannot take hold of if you grasp,
Is silent when you speak,
Speaks when you are silent,
And you can only have when you don't want it?"

If you can discover the secret of this riddle, you will discover how the Martial Arts can become a way to Peace!

Dr. Terrence Webster-Doyle demonstrates convincingly how conventional instruction in martial arts—focused on physical skill only—is not enough to help young people understand and resolve conflict. However, if they are introduced to a whole martial art, one that teaches how to avoid and therefore prevent conflict, young people can learn to deal with threatening situations powerfully and effectively, without resorting to physical violence.
