Oh yeah, another good read (even if it's more strategy than martial arts) is: The Art of War by Sun Tzu

Given enough time, any man may master the physical. With enough knowledge, any man may become wise. It is the true warrior who can master both....and surpass the result.

Patrick,

You put on there: "Tang Soo Do by Kang Uk Lee - Recommended by karatekid1975"

Eventhough I have that book and it is good, I recommended Authentic Tang Soo Do by C.S. Kim. Which you can get from the ITF (Not the TKD one ... http://www.tangsoodo.co.uk/book.htm ).

"Aikido Exercises for Teaching and Training" by C.M. Shifflett:: If you're just starting out in Aikido, this book will help you get right into it fast. It's absolutely great. No Aikido student should train without it.

"Hapkido: Traditions, Philoisophy, Technique" by Marc Tedeschi: This book is one of the best books on any martial art, ever. It's so comprehensive. Expensive but worth it.

"Aikido for Life" by Gaku Homma: This was the first book I read on Aikido. I knocked it out in a few hours. It's a very good introduction to AIkido.

"Tao of Jeet Kune Do" by Bruce Lee: It's a very informative book, although probably better if supplemented with training. I read it before I ever set foot in a Dojo/Dojang.[/b]

Comprehensive Applications of Shaolin Chin Na (Qin Na: The Practical Defense of Chinese Seizing Arts for All Martial arts Styles)
Jwing-Ming Yang

The Power of Internal Martial Arts: Combat Secrets of Ba Gua, Tai Chi, and Hsing-I
Bruce Kumar Frantzis

I looked through these two today and loved them, especially the latter.

What's going on with the books page with the broken link? It sounds like it would be a great resource.
