[headline_georgia_small_left color=”#000000″]How do you feel about learning from a book, in general?[/headline_georgia_small_left]
Do you think it’s the best way? Or do you only learn in a class or from a video?
[features_box_light_green width=”75%” + border=”2px”]Note: I love to learn from books. So much so, that our family, at times, gets overrun by our book purchases. For example, this Spring Break, we’re going to have a garage sale. Our goal is to reduce our book collection by a mere 2,000 books. Does that sound like a lot to you? Not to us.[/features_box_light_green]
I think you develop a more rounded and complete skill when you work from a book. Videos can make us lazy. Sometimes the shortcuts bypass an important skill.
Reread that last sentence; it’s important.
Figuring it out by feel has a lot of benefit when it comes to martial arts and self-defense.
If you combine the time in print of both the original version with rough line drawings and the revised edition of Wrist Locks: From Protecting Yourself to Becoming an Expert (Revised and Updated)
(423 photos), you’ll see that it has been in print for well over a decade. The vote is in: people love learning from this book.
This is NOT a sales message, and I am not trying to sell you on my book.

Most people would say that it’s a no-brainer. The portable eReader folk would say that all books belong in an electronic format, but I’m not so sure.
When I learn an active skill set from a book, I like to have the book right there with me, sort of like a workbook.
Would a Kindle or Nook be safe from harm in a martial-arts practice situation?
If you are practicing outside, can you easily read the screen in bright sunlight?
And I am sure there are other considerations, too.
So, my question to you is … What would be your favorite format for reading a Wrist Locks book?
