....and I highly recommend it. Great stories of the early days, how his philosophy has evolved over the years, and he really pulls no punches when it comes to his feelings/personal life. Truly a warriors memoir.

The only minor, and I mean very minor, disappointment is I wanted to read way more about the Yakuza and his interactions with them. He tells a few different stories, but I want to hear them all! From what I understand, there will be more volumes to come in the future, so I'm sure more tales will be told.

Great book sir!

It was really good except the kindle version I got had screwed up editing. Like it jumped around a bit. Still a great read and actually affected my training a bit...

Enson writes a lot about fighters mind set in preparation and during fights. If you like that, I would highly recommend Sam Sheridan's "A Fighters Mind", he interviews a lot of great trainers and fighters on their mental state as they prepare for combat.

It's quoted multiple times in that order in the book, so yes. It makes much more sense after you read it. The man is deep.

What are you waiting for man? If I recall correctly, he's on 3 separate times, all of them were fascinating.

Just finished it as well. Went through it in a couple days. Some really great stories and so enriching to hear the mindset of Enson during his fights and some problems he ran into. Addressing fears and his mindset about them was my favorite.

Enson, if you read this, thank you man. You've always been a huge inspiration. Looking forward to part 2.
