Uechi-ryu practitioner Paul Sweeney has written an excellent book . . .”Gleanings of a ten-year odyssey in Asian clinics, temples and dojo”. . . which all martial artist and alternate health enthusiasts should enjoy reading. Paul sent me this email along with a copy of his book:
Hi Mattson Sensei:
I just wanted to update my phone number under Arizona dojo listing if possible. I originally had the good fortune to train under Sensei Walter Mattson many years ago before heading to Japan(uechi) and China(whooping crane) to train in dojos and hospitals for 10 years. I received my yon-dan in Uechi from Uehara Sensei in 2000. As I became so busy with patients and research for many years, I got away from teaching. I will be back in Asia training and doing hospital work(acupuncture) again this summer. Hope to start a new class in the Fall at my Phoenix clinic/dojo.
I wanted to let you know that I published a book called “Health Over Harmony” a few years ago about insights I learned training in Asian clinics and dojo for ten years. It has patient case studies, oriental medicine essays, and microbiology/raw food research(paleo diets including raw meats). There is also a chapter called “Martial Arts and Brain Coherence”.
It is on Amazon etc and I will send you a copy just in case there is something in it which you may find interesting.Hope you and your family are well.
Thank You, Paul Sweeny
