The Martial Apprentice

4 Comments, Posted by: Roy Dean in: Articles, Media, News

I’m very pleased with my latest project, “The Martial Apprentice,” and even more pleased to be offering it for free.  This electronic book is available in 3 formats:

1.  iPad:  In color, and enhanced with slideshows and video.  The premier experience. 

Available as a free download here.

2.  PDF:  In color, and similar to the iPad format, but without the enhanced media. 

Available as a free download here.

3.  Kindle:  Text only. 

Available on Amazon for 2.99 here.

“The Martial Apprentice” details my introduction to Judo, Aikido, and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, and the adventure of serving as a live in student to a Japanese Jujutsu master.  It will be followed by “BJJ Journey,” set for release in summer of 2013, which explores a decade of dedicated Brazilian Jiu Jitsu study, from blue belt to black belt, with video and text to put you in the heart of the action.  It will be a book like no other, and I hope it inspires others to stay on the path of jiu jitsu, which is not an easy road, but well worth the journey.

  3. Was a wonderful read. I just started BJJ but I am intrigued by eastern culture over all. The most smiles were cast on my face, reading your personal remarks every now and then. It makes you even more .. human. Sorry I cannot find better words, but Roy is an inpiration to me.
