Hi folks! Busy busy busy, but need a break, so here's a look at what Goodreads recommends to me based on my "Martial Arts" shelf. What I put here is books that revolve around styles of personal combat, be that Eastern martial arts, boxing & wrestling or fencing. As you might guess, this includes a lot of shounen manga. But there are some surprises as well.
