Sort order. Great book, an epic story. I bought this for my 9 year old son who has a tast for reading. As soon as he finished it he immediately asked for the next book. When he sprinted through that one as well I thought I should see what the book is about. Growing up in the 80 with movies like American Ninja the fact that Jack Fletcher is British simply made the book better for me , the book did have a bit of a nostalgic feel to it.
However I did not think that the story have such a high level of authenti Great book, an epic story. However I did not think that the story have such a high level of authenticity of detail about feudal Japanese culture, and about martial arts themselves.
It is an action packed story, which perfectly capture the essence of the Samurai and martial arts. Another great thing about this book is like the book says it is about the journey. Jack does not start out as a great warrior or even great warrior material, however his pre-Samurai training life leaves him with a strong core which is essential for martial arts. He makes gradual progress in both Martial arts, language, lifestyle and the Japanese culture all the way through the book.
Not only improving physical but breaking down prejudice as well. I also like the way the introduce the spiritual part of martial arts as well. All in all a great book. Thoroughly enjoyed by 2 generations of Alavi's. View all 4 comments.
Megan McMillen Would you say this is a 9 year olds level then? Khurram My son read it when he was younger then 9. The book Is not gory but there are killings in the book. I would call this my for young teens.

Young samurai : the way of the warrior
Chiefly for the young though adult readers will enjoy the ride is the plot. Yes, it's predictable and sometimes pushes the suspension bridge of disbelief, but it's what the people want! And then, for adults though young readers will be willing to "eat their mental vegetables," given the cheese sauce plot , a wonderful embedding of Japanese culture, history, and vocabulary.
Bradford knows his stuff, in other words, and he makes a point of making HIS appreciation of the Japanese OUR appreciation thanks to this book. Finally, good or bad, this is the first of gasp! Overall, satisfying and educational.
And I, of course, liked the meditation teacher best, Sensei Yamada. Keep your eye on that one. He's bound to play a role in sequels.

The only problem is that it's been done before and so much better! The "similarities" go on! There is even a crew member called Ginsel which was not even a very popular Dutch name! Throughout the book Chris Bradford gives credit to the people who's quotes he uses, but at no point does he make any references to James Clavell! Not once! Okay, next part of the book!
Book: The Way of the Warrior
Again, this may also sound a little familiar! He gets to go to a unique school, where he's friends with a clever girl and a clumsy boy and early on he earns the enmity of a rich classmate and one of the few teachers, who goad and belittle him throughout school.
Another of the teachers, a wise old man, befriends him and teaches him how to protect himself. An inter-school competition sees the young boy faced against his rival, thankfully, with the help of his plucky friends and the secret knowledge taught to him by the old master, he over comes his rival and his thug-like friends!
Come on! Chris Bradford writes really well! It's just a shame that most of the ideas aren't his! Taking inspiration from others is one thing but in that case you at least give them some credit!

Dalam lingkungan Masamoto lha, Jack belajar banyak. Belajar menjadi seorang samurai dan belajar memahami kehidupan. Cerita dalam buku ini gampang sekali ditebak bagaimana akhirnya.
Tapi itu tak menyurutkan saya untuk melanjutkan membacanya. Penulisnya sangat cermat meramu cerita, khususnya untuk bagian seni bela diri. Penulisnya menggambarkan sangat detail, setiap gerakan kaki, badan, tangan, kepala betul-betul autentik. Layaknya saya sedang menonton film silat jepang dalam slow motion. Selain itu banyak sekali petuah kuno samurai yang diterangkan penulis. Tujuh Prinsip dalam bela diri samurai dan menjalani kehidupan, sehari-hari yaitu: Prinsip 1; Gi , Integritas adalah kemampuan untuk membuat keputusan yang benar dan keyakinan moral dan untuk bersikap adil dan sama kepada semua orang tanpa memedulikan ras, warna kulit, gender dan usia.
Prinsip 2; Yu , Keberanian adalah kemampuan untuk mengatasi setiap keadaab dengan keberanian dan keyakinan. Prinsip 3; Jin , Welas Asih adalah gabungan antara kasih sayang dan kemurahan hati. Prinsip 4; Rei , Hormat. Prinsip ini berarti menghormati orang lain. Prinsip 5; Makoto , Kejujuran artinya bertingkah-laku yang benar secara moral dan selalu melakukan hal-hal dengan kemampuan terbaik.
Prinsip 6; Meiyo , Martabat. Dicapai dengan sikap positif dalam berpikir serta mengikuti perilaku yang tepat. Prinsip 7; Chungi , Kesetiaan adalah dasar dari semua prinsip; tanpa dedikasi dan kesetiaan pada tugas yang sedang dikerjakan dan kepada sesama, seseorang tak dapat berharap mencapai hasil yang diinginkan. Tujuh prinsip itu hanya sebagian filosofi yang saya temukan dalam buku ini.
Masih ada banyak petuah-petuah yang mungkin terasa simpel tapi memberikan efek luar biasa bagi yang membacanya cat: Ini contohnya; "Teman tidak dipisahkan oleh perbedaan. Mereka justru bersatu karena perbedaan" P Saya masih ingin belajar banyak dari kehidupan Para Samurai dari mata Chris Badford, jadi langsung lanjut baca buku ke duanya "Kendo". View all 12 comments. Nov 28, Asamii rated it really liked it Shelves: The beginning did not grab me immediately and I was prioritising other books over this one but I do admit that I was hooked after few chapters.
Since I'm a fan of Japan , this book was really entertaining since it revolves around Japan's traditions and cultures! Im really grateful for my friend who lend me this book. I might buy the rest of the trilogy: Jul 24, LittleBookDruid rated it it was amazing. So I loved it a lot. Based on the feudal era Japan, this story takes off when a ship from England, searching for this mysterious land, catch up with a really nasty storm and ends up being dragged to a smaller piece of land.
While trying to repair the ship, they are attacked by Japanese pirates and all of them are killed 4. While trying to repair the ship, they are attacked by Japanese pirates and all of them are killed except a twelve-year boy named Jack who somehow survives. Who is dragged to the land by a savior, he is a really looked up to Samurai of the village that's near this port. His own son was killed by a ninja exactly two years ago, so he considers it a sign and takes Jack into his adoption.
Things happen and Jack is taken to the Samurai school in Kyoto, where he has to learn all the arts of being a Samurai while dealing with quite a lot of racism. I just love myself a book with Japan. I have grown up watching solely animes, so it was like a throwback to my early middle-grade life.
I also will always love a book with Academy aspect. Especially I enjoy reading about training though it is always in the danger of being dragged. Luckily, Bradford was really good at keeping it minimal and interesting.
The pacing of this book was really strong. Though the beginning felt like a retelling of Shogun is middle-grade version. A nice, breezy book with really interesting characters, I loved it. Though as I mentioned, it's a me situation. I love all of these tropes and Bradford played with them nicely thus I adored it. I will still recommend it but read it with that in mind. Sep 11, Nicolas Lukasik rated it liked it.
What made me start reading Young Samurai was the front cover picture. It has a shadow with a sword and some red background which completely caught my eye. I thought this book was a genuine idea and really interesting how Jack manages to pass so many challenges without failing.
What also caught my eye was the back, it said, Jack has to learn to become a Samurai and fight against a ninja called Dokugan Ryu. This novel has real characters and not alien-like creatures everywhere. While reading this What made me start reading Young Samurai was the front cover picture. While reading this story you can also feel the sadness that Jack sometimes feels when he is thinking about his sister that got taken by Dokugan Ryu and now has to live in solitude.
I also really enjoyed how at the beginning, everyone at his samurai school thinks he's eccentric, but at the end, his schoolmates respect him except for one person, who the whole time, never appreciated him and becomes an antagonist halfway through the series.
This novel brought back memories of my travels to Japan. In particular, I once attended a traditional archery temple training. While reading passages of Young Samurai, I could picture vividly the concentration by the masters taking precise aim with bows before hitting their targets. This book changed the way I look at the history of Japan. Feb 24, The Styling Librarian rated it it was amazing Shelves: The Way of the Warrior by Chris Bradford - Young Samurai Series - This felt like quite the well researched book filled with philosophy in an approachable manner.
I really appreciated the perspectives on different cultures shared in the book and actually marked chapter 8 as the perfect chapter to read aloud to introduce world awareness and developing cultural respect and understanding, even when you don't understand what you're doing initially. In another portion of the book, chapter 15, I loved The Way of the Warrior by Chris Bradford - Young Samurai Series - This felt like quite the well researched book filled with philosophy in an approachable manner.
In another portion of the book, chapter 15, I loved how a boy was learning about how to understand the Japanese culture through their language. Not for those who dislike violence.

Looking forward to reading more! Ich finde es gut, dass es in dem Buch vorkommt, auch wenn die meisten die wahre Bedeutung vielleicht nicht so ganz wahrnehmen werden. Ungemein irritiert hat mich aber das japanische Begriffe in unserem Schriftsystem geschrieben werden also z. Zudem geschieht dies wahllos.
