Blue Eyed Samurai free pdf The last uchi deshi (live-in student) of Sosai Oyama Masutatsu, Nicholas Pettas, takes you along on his adventure as an eager, 18-year-old boy going from Copenhagen, Denmark to the other side of the globe. Here, in Tokyo, Japan, he doesn't just find himself in another country, but in a different world altogether. The rigorous life of an uchi deshi is filled with drama and the struggle to survive. Even more so for a Western uchi deshi, thrown into an environment where everything is different - the food, the language, the life-style and, above all, the karate. Literally having to fight for his survival on a daily basis, Nicholas turns to his inner self to search for the strength needed to fulfil his dream of completing the daunting 1000-day karate course. Becoming a true lion in the art and sport of karate, and the last non-Japanese to complete Master Oyama's course, today, author Nicholas Pettas is known in Japan as "The Blue-eyed Samurai", an acknowledgment of his true Samurai Spirit.

Today, he still regularly appears on Japanese TV, acts in TV dramas, and runs his own radio show. Now, Nicholas is happily married with three daughters and a dog named Tyson, after the real Tyson. He lives in Tokyo and enjoys teaching karate and kickboxing. In his free time he goes racing on the track with his monster bike, a GSXR 1300 Hayabusa, or just crushes WODs crossfit style in the gym.
