I'm very pleased to announce the completion of my newest project, "Sound of the Way: Music for Martial Arts."

This 10 track album, available exclusively on iTunes, was composed specifically for martial arts, against the backdrop of Aikido, Japanese Jujutsu, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, and submission grappling.

It's perfectly suited for working out, driving, or rolling around on the mat. I often play the album while conducting classes, and with no lyrics, it's motivating without being distracting.

It can be found on iTunes by searching for "Sound of the Way: Music for Martial Arts".

Many consider the fourth track, "Aikido," to be a standout. I would love to hear your thoughts.
