From the Inside Flap:

Foreword
by Master Sean Elliot Martin

First of all, congratulations. By picking up this book, you show that you approach the martial arts with seriousness and wisdom. There are various reasons why people study martial arts. Students pursue physical health, mental discipline, spiritual enlightenment, friendly (or not-so-friendly) competition, artistic expression, cultural preservation, and / or self-defense through martial arts training. No matter your interest in the martial arts, this book is an absolutely invaluable tool, and there is no one more qualified to write it than Dr. Jolie Bookspan. Dr. Bookspan's achievements in the fields of sports medicine, exercise physiology, and martial arts are too many to be easily listed, and I am among the many who literally believe her to be the greatest fitness expert alive. She is a tireless researcher and teacher who has traveled the world in the pursuit of knowledge and better ways to communicate that knowledge. She is a student who has the patience and the humility to continually learn from others. She is a martial artist of astonishing discipline and physical ability. Perhaps most importantly, she is a strong and dedicated person who has seen and experienced physical suffering first-hand and has healed herself and others. I have literally seen tears of gratitude in the eyes of individuals who returned to thank Dr. Bookspan for stopping their pain.

Although I did not realize the true significance at the time, I came to a full appreciation of Dr. Bookspan's miracles when I recalled the afternoon that two of my advanced students, Christopher Michael Emmolo and Elizabeth Pallack, and I spent at the Philadelphia museum. We joined Dr. Bookspan and her associates to take photographs for this very book. Between shots, Christopher and I slung each other around like rag dolls as usual (our idea of having a good time). Elizabeth turned handsprings and back flips with one of Dr. Bookspan's students. We had fun, but I thought nothing of it at the time. It was only later that I realized the importance of that afternoon. Less than a year before, Christopher believed that he would never be able to train as a martial artist again due to crippling arthritis. Elizabeth had been told that any kind of gymnastics would be impossible for the rest of her life due to a very severe ankle injury she suffered as a teen. These conditions had robbed them of their lives. That was before they began to work with Dr. Bookspan.

Perhaps the key to Dr. Bookspan's miracles lies in her ability to demystify the methods of healthy living, and to empower the individual to take control over his or her own well-being. You just need the knowledge to do the job right. Depending upon your own background, you may already be aware of certain principles of healthy martial arts practice that are covered in this book. However, I believe that every reader, no matter how educated, will learn crucial information from this work. The benefits of such knowledge are numerous: personal health, avoidance of injury for one's self and one's students, increased efficiency of particular techniques, and perhaps even (dare I say it?) avoidance of lawsuits. Whatever your motivation, your choice to study this book is a sign that you are ready to take personal control of your own life and health in the martial arts and begin a new phase of your journey. May this journey bring you more than you ever hoped for.

About the Author:

Dr. Jolie Bookspan is a 4th degree black belt in Shotokan karate and undefeated full contact Muay Thai fighter, earning the title Kruu Muay. She trained with several of the pioneers of martial arts and with the monks of Japan, Nepal, and Thailand. Former military research physiologist, professor of anatomy, and sports medicine specialist known around the world for innovative techniques that change medicine for the better.  Her training and injury rehabilitation techniques, used by police, military, athletes, and top rehab centers, are so successful that Harvard Medical School clinicians named her "The St. Jude of the Joints." Paralyzed in a non-fighting accident, she rehabbed herself over years using the methods in this book to be able to walk, and started over as a white belt until earning her black belt a second time. Severely injured in a second non-fighting accident, she again worked years to walk, train, compete, and teach. Jolie and her husband Paul were inducted into the Eastern USA International Black Belt Hall of Fame. Together they teach martial arts at Temple University, and were named Black Belt Man and Woman of the Year 2004 and Instructors of the Year 2009.
