is a rambling, eccentric website displaying pages of an illustrated instructional book of the same name. The site is roughly divided into four topics: Traveller, Physician, Sailor, and Martial Artist. It features heavily notated illustrations that demonstrate everything from using healthy breathing techniques and using aloe vera to learning martial art hand strikes, avoiding shark attacks, making survival shelters, and navigating. The author, Zeek, seems to be a sailor who spent much time in Asia.
Each page of the crowded, poorly designed website contains a dedication as follows: "The Art of Shen Ku is: Dedicated to ALL life in ANY galaxy SUFFERING FROM ILLNESS, PERSECUTION, CIRCUMSTANCE OR DESPAIR THIS WORK IS FOR YOU – DON’T GIVE UP." The site is full of eccentric, exuberant statements like that, yet also contains highly detailed instructions and drawings that could be used by travellers, sailors, and people interested in gaining a more self-reliant lifestyle.
