    Sailing Simplified is a literal and simple sailing training guide with a little tongue-in- cheek diversion.  A person with a little boating experience, and some, or minimal, common sense, should be able to grasp the simple concept of using wind power to travel over the world’s waters.  This lesson plan will take you from stepping aboard a typically equipped and rigged small to medium-sized sailboat to sailing it about the local waters. It will also prime you in a small amount of the mysterious sailor’s language. 
    Warning, warning, this may lead you to a lifetime of casual sailing or lure you into a whole new way of speaking and/or acting like a sailor geek.
    I wish you blue skies, high tides, fair winds, light seas, loads of fun and a bone in your teeth.

    The goals of the budo—the martial arts and Ways of Japan—lie in refining the body and spirit. The techniques, methods, and rituals of the budo can provide invaluable lessons for today's martial artists—and serve as guides to a well-lived life.In Traditions, Davy Lowry discusses unique aspects of the budo ranging from hacho, or deliberate asymmetry, to uke-waza, the art of "receiving" an attack. The spirit of ryomi, the process of self-evaluation and improvement, is illustrated through the story of Kaofujita, a master swordsman who never stopped practicing the first movement he learned. You'll also learn the importance of yuyo, the distance where an attacker must focus his strike, from the story of Jubei, whose mastery of yuyo saved him in a life-and-death encounter, and the significance of shikaku—, the dead zone, on maintaining balance in combat and in life.With its focus on traditional martial arts, and fascinating stories that illustrate key martial arts principles and philosophy,Traditions will be required reading for serious martial artists.
