This book is a collection of writings from local legend, martial artist, and philosopher James Kesterson. James had a rough road through life, and saw more violence and suffering than many will ever see. He came close to death many times — as he put it, “Another day, another near death experience” — before it finally caught up with him.
This book is a collection of things he wrote, with his musings on life and death, his anecdotes of the insanity of life on Earth, and his outlook and approach on martial arts.
James’ experiences with violence and his search for truth and peace can be seen in his commentary on training, on self defense, and on the ultimate reality of it all.
James was a force of nature, and changed the lives of those he touched. This book remembers him through his own words. Martial artists, especially those practicing ninjutsu, will find frank and honest insights. For others, his words may make you laugh, or they may make you cry. While he may not have been politically correct, he was brutally honest, and there are things he said that almost everyone can relate to.
All profits from the sale of this book will be used toward education for his children.
