9781475251289: Why Fight?: Inside the Body and Mind of the Combat Athlete

Why fight? It is a question asked by those searching for insights into the world of sport fighting, and it is a question to which fighters themselves seldom know the answer. For millennia, people have squared off against one another in contests of unarmed combat, often for glory, sometimes for money, but always at great personal risk. And yet, the fundamental reasons why sports such as boxing, wrestling, mixed martial arts flourish through the generations have never been explained. Until now. Why Fight? Inside the Body and Mind of the Combat Athlete critically examines aggression and violence, their impact on human evolution, and the roles of the body and mind in making the combat sport experience a transcendent one. By plumbing mankind's biological and philosophical depths, it uncovers what truly motivates the sport fighter.
