Jedi Book Group - Living the Martial Way by Forrest Morgan

For this book club, we will be meeting at the Chikara Martial Arts Academy dojo.  If you need a ride, say so in your RSVP and we'll make sure you get there.

We will have the last of a 3-part series on an excellent book - Living the Martial Way by Forrest Morgan. This book is a inspiration to people who not only want to train in the martial arts, but live the martial arts in their daily lives.  It is an accounting of how a person views the world around them and how they interact with others, having the mindset of a "Martial Artist"

The use of this book as it applies to Living the Jedi Way is that we see being a Jedi not only as something we admire or enjoy to do, but part of a daily way of life.  It is simply who we are.  Morgan shows how a person interacts as a warrior in the world at all times.  Not just in the dojo - Or the Jedi Temple.

We are covering part three: "The Way of LIving." You need only read chapters 9 through 12.

After the discussion and interactive powerpoint we may utilize the dojo space and do some lightsaber work. So bring a lightsaber if you have one. We willl almost certainly find a place to get a bite to eat.

    Since I am somehow setup as Assistant Organizer, I have no ability to update the people who attended.

    The event went well and I think they enjoyed the topics talked about Obligation and Honor and understanding ones responsibility to those who taught them the path.
