Must have fore historians. Martial artists, mehhhhh.

If you are interested in the history and techniques of asian martial arts, then this is THE book to have on your shelf. If you're more interested in the intricacies of the various training methods and techniques, then keep looking. The writing style is very text bookish. It's really more of the writer/translators droling on about nothing than the actual works they translated.
