Review#1 Bujin “Patrick McCarthy” (Brisbane, Australia) – Something of a mystery-man, Richard Kim was a Zen priest, trailblazer and veritable pied piper of the martial arts. His charismatic personality, encyclopedic-like knowledge and penetrating wisdom made him one of the most revered teachers of our time. A tall tree in the forest of martial arts he provoked the pride of winds and was the giant upon whose shoulders many stood to see further than others. Paraphrasing the words of Zen prelate, Matsuo Basho, Kim urged us all, “not to seek to follow in the footsteps of the men of old but rather to seek what they sought.” Hanshi of the Dai Nippon Butoku Kai, Richard Kim is remembered as an artist of life and the last of the Classical Men, and who better qualified to the present the Master’s legacy than long-time Canadian student, Don Warrener. “20th Century Samurai” is an informal testament to the remarkable journey of Richard Kim, and a wonderful publication that offers more than just an account of his accomplishments and contributions.
