Book Review

Secret Fighting Arts of the Warrior Race, Volume 1 - betleH yIqel

Written by HetaQ DoqwI'
Published by: Pacific Warriors Inc.
ISBN: 1-890065-00-5

This review has taken me considerably longer that I had intended. There is a very good reason for this. This is not a novel that you sit back and read. This is not a light paperback book that you flip through in a day or two and then forget about. This is a font of information that you study, a group of lessons that you practice and learn and absorb.

HetaQ and Pacific Warriors Inc have done every true Klingon Warrior on the planet Dirt a great service. We have been honoured with a way to learn and build upon the knowledge of fighting techniques designed by a sensei.

Included in the 170 pages of this book are well over 300 photos and illustrations showing the proper stances to be used in handling the betleH. These include photos of warriors using the weapon as well as foot charts which will allow you to know that you are in the correct position before you proceed to the next lesson.

Also included are detailed instructions on movement, when and how to shift your body weight so as to most effectively carry out an attack or defend your position.

If it were with in my authority, I would order each and every member of the KIDC Security Division to purchase a copy. This includes the KBA, the Ambassador's elite corps of all-female bodyguards. There are lessons contained here that would make the smallest of our members the equal of any attacker.

I will not even attempt to rate this book on my normal scale, to do so would be an insult to the warriors who's labour it is. Instead, let me say that, anyone who holds true warrior batlh in the esteem in which it should be held will buy a copy of not only this book but the others in the series if they come out.

For purchasing information contact the Klingon Imperial Embassy, a limited number of these now rare books are still available.

Survive and Succeed,
Commander Makin Sutai Cheghjihtah-Kasara
KIDC Chief of Security
