This volume celebrates the current high standards and promise for continued excellence in academic research and practical application, using a balanced approach in the martial arts as a fighting practice and equally important cultural or civil practices.

The Journal of Asian Martial Arts has been an important beacon of reason and class. In succession, this new book appears to be a slam-dunk hit.
