♥ What our readers are saying ♥
In regards to Sensei David Dangerfield’s book Martial Reflections; I have had the privilege of knowing David Dangerfield for 20 years and have watched him drive forward organisations, programs and practices with two hallmarks – integrity and authenticity. The book Martial Reflections chronicles a life dedicated to service and a belief in people and the betterment of society. David Dangerfield’s ideas and commitment have influenced and had a positive effect on many more people than the thousands of students, families and industry professionals who have attended his programs and seminars. Congratulations on the book! It’s depth, scope and warmth make for enlightening reading.

If you are serious about making an impact not only in your own life but in others, Martial Reflections is a must read. Relevant for both the serious Martial artist and people from all walks of life, this collection of short stories takes the heard earned lesson from the dojo and applies them in a succinct and meaningful way in everyday life. In my 30 years of studying the Japanese Martial arts, there have been many books that have inspired me but knowing firsthand the integrity, experience and skill of Dangerfield Sensei, this is clearly my favourite.

I have just finished reading your excellent book, Martial Reflections, sent to me by a friend. I would like to thank you for your signed copy and express my appreciation for the value of its content. Your depth of knowledge and ability is obvious with your adherence to traditional training values and etiquette inspiring. Your book will no doubt become a reference for many years to come as I absorb the wealth of information it contains.
I was particularly impressed with your dedication to working with NGO’s and people with disabilities. In an increasingly materialistic and narcissistic world I believe it is individuals such as yourself that can counterbalance this trend and set the example, particularly for martial artists.
Your book has helped shine a light on areas of my own life that that require exposure and analysis and for that I am truly grateful.
