Empty Handed

Empty Handed: A Modern-Day Miyagi tells the story of author Nathan Chlumsky, who grew up in a small town of Kansas, bullied and abused, and told he would never make it in the martial arts. Now, almost 28 years later, he has black belt rankings in multiple disciplines and is about to test for his 5th degree black. He is also a 3x Martial Arts Hall of Fame Inductee and one of the top martial arts historians in the world. This book tells how he overcame all that was thrown at him to become the Modern Day Miyagi that he is today.
