BOOK DEDICATION:  EVE CARSON & LAUREN BURK

This past week marks the first anniversary of two tragic events; one, the slaying of UNC-Chapel Hill student Eve Carson and two, the murder of 18-year old Auburn student, Lauren Burk.  I didn’t know these girls personally, but as someone whose passion is in teaching individuals about personal safety and defense, the impact lit a fire in me that has not yet be squelched.  My book was already in its conception, but it wasn’t until March of 2008 that I felt compelled, and in some way, obligated, to write this concise, and easily-readable book of 118 pages. Violence is wild, and in some ways, it can’t be stopped.  It endures…. but as I’ve said in my book, “so does love.”  Sometimes love alone cannot stop the violence, whereas with love & compassion, awareness, knowledge, courage, and solidarity… we carve ourselves a much larger chance.  To the families of these two beautiful girls, our thoughts go with you.

THE GOLDEN THREAD is the first book, of taijiquan and self defense coach Michael Joyce.  Praised by many of the great martial artists in the field today, it serves as concise and scientifically-sound volume in the quest for understanding personal self protection.  The book is available online only and can be purchased at the following link: THE GOLDEN THREAD: ESSENTIAL PRINCIPLES.  Proceeds for this, and all the various products located in my online store go towards educational aids for my wushu and self defense courses.  Thank you very much.
