Book: "The Second Life of Judo"
I wanted to make mention of an interesting little book by Alan Rafkind called "The Second Life Of Judo". If you've ever been injured to the point of no longer being able to practice, you begin to understand something about the psychological and emotional implications. You also begin to understand some of the deeper lessons associated with the arts.
In Alan's words: "When a serious nerve injury sidelined my participation on the mat I found a special way to give back to the Judo community that has given me so much! As you all know- Judo teaches us so much more then good technique and Japanese words and how to defend ourselves....... Its lessons about life and 'growing up' are invaluable. The principles that are at the very core of playing Judo can enhance the quality of anyone's life no matter what difficult situation one finds themselves face to face with. This is the message of The Second Life Of Judo".
Here's a sample:
And no, I don't get a dime from doing this; just trying to help a fellow judoka :)
