Kris Wilder and Lawrence Kane
In a world where honor and strength collide, an unlikely hero embarks on a journey of a lifetime... to find the heart of martial arts. A down-on-his-luck young man joins forces with a Japanese journalist. They travel the West of America to see for themselves what martial arts have become, what they have been, and hopefully what they can be. Discover the strength that lies within, joining David, Seiji, and the beautiful Yo. The world and the not-so-hidden enemies from David’s own karate club block the path.
