Welcome
This little e-book is based on a series of articlesI wrote for myUrban Samurai blogand I be-lieve it fills somewhat of a gap in the market forbooks of this nature. The reason I wrote it isbecause I couldn’t find any other books thatdealt specifically with mind training for martialartists, at least not in a practical sense. Iwanted information that I could use to help mebecome a better martial artist and whilst I foundplenty of relevance in different sources I couldfind no publication that really brought all theinformation together in one easy to read book.So I thought by bringing together informationfrom different sources and more importantly,including techniques that I have tried and tested myself, I’d be doing people a favour.I have compiled here then a short guide that will get you started in training your mind formartial arts success. I have went as in-depth as I thought I needed to go without wishing tooverwhelm you with too much information. You will still get a good grounding in the subjectscovered and the exercises included are practical and easy to follow so you can try them outwithout too much trouble.Don’t be deceived by the simplicity of the techniques on offer here. Although the book is briefthe content is still very valuable and you can use it to make very profound, positive and longlasting changes, not only to your training but to your life in general. Like everything else, youwill get as much out of the techniques and exercises as you put in. They are also not meantto be substitutes for physical training, but merely a complement to it. Keep that in mind asyou read.I hope you find the book useful and enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it.Good luck with your training!Neal Martin
