Angry White Pyjama's

Hi Rachael, Some books I really like are Angry White Pyjama's (dont lynch me Yoshinkan folks) by robert twigger,
I have that book. Actually, I bought it before I started training in Aikido. I'd really recommend it to all martial artists. I especially loved the description of one guy who started banging his head against the floor after a long session spent in seiza. I truly sympathise with him. Thanks to an old horse riding injury to my knee I can't spend a long time sat in seiza (at least, that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it!! ) and I've often felt like bashing my head against the floor too.

Thanks everyone for your welcomes!!

Shodan, Shotokan karate & 6th kyu Aikido
