In The Warrior Mind, Jim Pritchard, a disciple of Ninjitsu and Taijitsu masters, shares insights into the mind of a warrior, used as a powerful means of self-defense. Whether you are facing challenges in your personal or professional life, the book offers tools to overcome the odds by applying martial art principles.

Based on principles of Attentive Curiosity, Undulation, Clear Intent, Grappling, Rolling Waves, and The Whirlwind, Pritchard reveals skills in maintaining focus and balance in any situation in life. These mental habits are explained with examples of real life situations, to help readers deal with any surprising situation. As the author suggests, 'The workplace is a psychological battlefield in many respects.' Feel more empowered and develop well-being as you are taken step by step through these six energetic principles. There are tips on how to handle serious set-backs, whether on the job or personal. Get into empowering stances and behaviors when going for an interview or dealing with a relationship conflict. Anything that brings on anxiety is tackled in these pages.

I recommend The Warrior Mind to anyone wishing to develop skills in conflict/crisis and anxiety management, and specifically mind strength in self-defense. Read it to gain insights on the importance of body language, mind focus, exercise, and nutrition, and how to take care of body and mind. This is an important resource for both the Martial Artist and for those seeking better inner balance in their day-to-day lives.
