    In the mid 1980's Grandmaster Brock asked Grandmaster Rose to put into written form Brock's thoughts on BST. Grandmaster Rose had several audio tapes transcribed of Brock teaching BST. From this, he crafted not only an organized format for the philosophy, but added his own slant in many of the areas. Grandmaster Rose also showed how Brock's thoughts, though very Western in style, were the same as those voiced through the centuries by other thinkers and philosophers. Whereas Brock's original work reflected a very narrow approach to viewing life, Grandmaster Rose's version is much more broad based.
