The Way of the Warrior Description
This book is the sequel to the underground classic Secret Fighting Arts of the World, and chronicles the further adventures of the Indiana Jones of exotic martial arts, John F. Gilbey. His fistic and foot festivities take him in and out of dojos and gyms in the United States: to Iceland, Brazil, Iraq, and even an outer Tahitian island. Investigating claims of seemingly supernatural powers, Gilbey gives a strong nod to developed and carefully school inner disciplines, but has strong words for the fast buck artists who degrade serious martial arts like karate, kung fu, and jujutsu.
'On the Back' of The Way of the Warrior
IN 9163 a textile manufacturing millionaire named John F. Gilbey regaled martial arts enthusiasts with a collection of amazing tales about some outrageous and totally unknown fighting masters on three continents. Now Gilbey is back. His fistic and foot festivities take him ion and out of dojos and gyms in the United States: to Iceland, Brazil, Iraq, and even an outer Tahitian island. Investigating claims of seemingly supernatural powers, Gilbey gives a strong nod to developed and carefully schooled inner disciplines. Abhorring the violence interwoven in American life, he also has strong words for the fast buck artists who degrade serious martial arts like Karate, kung fu and jujitsu.
About Gilbey's feats:
"Here we have, bared and betrayed, all the secret fighting techniques of the choicest fighters - an ungodly throng including the Thugges, with the niceties of strangulation; the lightening-like destruction inflicted by a Peoria bookworm; the unfeeling finger tips of an obscure Mexican...and a lot more besides..." - South China Morning Post, Hong Kong
"It is all fascinating reading and in what a racy, pleasant style these fabulous revelations are presented!...One can well believe the publisher's claim that the author is perhaps the ablest all round fighter in the world..." - The Japan Times
"...fascinating reading (some of the things which Gilbey witnessed are downright incredible)and will give the serious student of the arts cause of deep reflection ..." - The Journal for the Association for Physical and Mental Rehabilitation
"The book is full of reports on different secret ways to beat up people..." - Army Times
