Descr. The pages of this unique book bring together two worlds: The world of “Martial Arts” and the world of “Fine Arts”. It is a collection of the author’s expertise in Martial Arts combined with his own drawings and paintings. Master Marc Sattler has put together an instructional manual with ten easy to learn wooden sword techniques in the traditional “One Step” format. The fantastic art work makes the process of understanding these basic moves very easy for any Martial Arts Student to follow.
This book is collectable to anyone who appreciates art as well as those who enjoy Martial Arts books. The visual artwork is both well done and a joy to look at. The Martial Arts techniques explained in this book are basic enough for most beginning students to learn. At the same time it offers some more advanced techniques so the more skilled practitioner will benefit as well.
The old saying of-“A picture is worth a thousand words,” certainly applies to this book. Any Martial Arts connoisseur would be happy to add it to their collection.
