"The contribution regarding the philosophy of martial art and what To Shin Do represents teaching which I feel has great value. The first six chapters as well as the last chapter were of particular interest to me as my own passion as an instructor and practitioner of martial arts always asks the questions on how to explain the mental aspects. Hayes and his editors I feel have done this very effectively, using relative and easy to understand terms with realistic but hypothetical situations to increase the readers understanding of these terms for practical use and further reflection." --Cyril Jackson, White Cat Publications
