Book Description:

Films from Hollywood to Hong Kong and such competitions as MMA and Ultimate Fighting give us vivid, if oversimplified, images of martial arts in action. But the realities of the world's martial arts traditions—their histories, philosophies, codes of honor, and methods—are richer than any pop culture portrayal can suggest, with centuries-old combat disciplines practiced in virtually every corner of the globe.

About the Author:

Thomas A. Green is associate professor of anthropology at Texas A&M University, College Station, TX.

Joseph R. Svinth is an editor for the Electronic Journals of Martial Arts and Sciences (http://ejmas.com).
