Sword and Brush: Spirit of the Martial Arts by Dave Lowry

Sword and Brush If you’re familiar with key Japanese terms found in the martial arts – Ki, Do, Kata – Lowry will take your understanding a stage deeper. He examines the written characters that make up these concepts, explaining their origins and meaning in a way that often leads to a fascinating new perspective.

Sword and Brush is the perfect illustration of the link between art, poetry and the practice of ‘Bugei’ (martial arts). The descriptions, in true Zen style are brief, but Lowry packs a great deal of insight into each piece. The vitality of his writing is an achievement in itself. A rare treat.
