Research of Martial Arts is a much needed breath of fresh air in the otherwise stale world of martial arts literature It is a solidly researched work that attempts to take on one of the most hotly debated topics in martial arts namely, the difference between Internal and External martial arts and, in my opinion, provides one of the most reasonable and thought out arguments on the subject I have ever read The second section of the book is comprised of a number of the author s personal Research of Martial Arts is a much needed breath of fresh air in the otherwise stale world of martial arts literature It is a solidly researched work that attempts to take on one of the most hotly debated topics in martial arts namely, the difference between Internal and External martial arts and, in my opinion, provides one of the most reasonable and thought out arguments on the subject I have ever read The second section of the book is comprised of a number of the author s personal reflections and thoughts on martial arts After reading his essays, one can see a littleclearly how his theories in the first section of the book developed The final section of the book is a real gem, however In it, the author skillfully interviews a number of very respected martial arts teachers, among them people like Chen Zhonghua and the late James Cama, and gets them to reveal a treasure trove of valuable information.The book s only downside is that it could have used another run through by a skilled editor There are many typos throughout the book and black and white graphs are referred to as if they were in color While it does not make the information inaccessible by any means, it does take away from the overall professional image of the work.All in all, if you were to only read one book on martial arts this year, Research of Martial Arts would be an excellent choice There is something in there for practitioners of all martial arts styles and it will give you a lot to think about as you continue your practice I recently had the pleasure of reading a book I thought would provide some esoteric insights on Martial Arts as a whole, but turned out to be farthan what it seemed.Research of Martial Arts by Jonathan Bluestein isn t the type of book you read cover to cover though you could It sakin to a reference manual in my opinion Something you go back to time and again to refresh your

on Martial Arts as a whole, but turned out to be farthan what it seemed.Research of Martial Arts by Jonathan Bluestein isn t the type of book you read cover to cover though you could It sakin to a reference manual in my opinion Something you go back to time and again to refresh your memory on the many basic and advanced concepts he has discovered through his own studies and from other Masters Jonathan Bluestein covers a wide variety of subjects from his own perspective, with chapters addressing the fundamental differences and similarities between Internal and External styles, the philosophy behind why Martial Artists move the way they do and a fascinating section discussing psychology and body mechanics.One section, in particular, cemented my respect for the author, Part III The Wisdom of Martial Arts , wherein Mr Bluestein shines the spotlight on the thoughts of other Master practitioners in the form of interviews and anecdotes.When I decided to get this book, I though I would be adding just another martial arts book to my library that might contain a few nuggets of useful information What I ve since discovered is that this book contains as much depth of knowledge as it is thick 418 pages.I recommend the purchase of Jonathan Bluestein s book, Research of the Martial Arts.Jesse BernalOwner InstructorColorado Martial Arts Academywww.aurorakarate.com Martial arts

effects of martial arts practise on youth show contrasting images While some refer to enhanced personal and social opportunities for those that participate, others warn against increased levels of aggressiveness and antisocial behavior among its participants The aim of the present review is to provide, firstly, an overview of the major findings of studies concerning the social psychological outcomes of martial arts practise Secondly, the limitations of those studies are discussed Fromthan 350 papers, collected during a two year lasting literature study, 27 papers met all criteria to be included in this study This review revealed that even though a considerable amount of research on social psychological outcomes of martial arts practise has been conducted over the years, to date, it has not brought clarity in the existing duality regarding the possible effects of martial arts involvement It is proposed that a better understanding can be provided if specific influential factors are taken into account in future research i.e., participants characteristics, type of guidance, social context and structural qualities of the sport Research of Martial Arts is truly three books in one I loved Part 1, and enjoyed Parts 2 and 3 The FIRST PART attempts to initiate a fine grained analysis of the differences between the hotly debated topic of internal and external martial arts, a division that is broadly, but incorrectly attributed to certain martial sects i.e., taiji is internal, shaolin is external The truth is that the lines are not nearly so clear whatever the form one is practicing, the real question is what one is Research of Martial Arts is truly three books in one I loved Part 1, and enjoyed Parts 2 and 3 The FIRST PART attempts to initiate a fine grained analysis of the differences between the hotly debated topic of internal and external martial arts, a division that is broadly, but incorrectly attributed to certain martial sects i.e., taiji is internal, shaolin is external The truth is that the lines are not nearly so clear whatever the form one is practicing, the real question is what one is doing with one s body as one practices the form, and there are significant differences in how one cultivates one s body through training an external art as opposed to an internal one, regardless of what martial sect form, one is attached to.Bluestein discusses this subject in step by step detail, attempt to inter relate traditional Asian theories on the subject along with modern Western exercise physiology and sports medicine His discussions on pengjin and tantien are, in particular, valuable due to his attempts to integrate various Western theories concerning training and coordination of connective tissue At this stage, NONE of the theories about how high level internal strength physiologically works are satisfactory One test will be that the quality of an explanation metaphoric or scientific will be determined by the results practitioners get as they use that metaphor for their own development As many explanations are extremely culture bound, translating concepts in a workable manner into Western languages is truly an important goal, and Bluestein has made some really wonderful strides here for all of us interested in the subject.THE SECOND PART, a short section of fifty or so pages, focuses on Bluestein s thoughts on martial arts, taking his own development as an example, as well as integrating several short interviews from other teachers He takes a very common view of the arts as a kind of character spiritual development, and does that very well Because I tend to disagree with this viewpoint, seeing as much possibility of character spiritual development in MMA or kick boxing, and as much possibility for self delusion within higher, spiritual arts, this section resonated less for me Some of the best men and women I know are practitioners of modern combatives, their training being how to most effectively kill other human beings, yet they are finer andtrustworthy than many, if not most, who are a product of classical martial arts, with all those philosophical and spiritual underpinnings.I want to be clear that this is not to denigrate the quality of Bluestein s discussion he interweaves his personal odyssey with a meta perspective of traditional Asian thinking on martial arts, and does it very well I simply have a somewhat different viewpoint.THE THIRD PART had a chain of interviews of varying quality some are treasures, while others are merely quite enjoyable encounters with intriguing personalities What is most useful within the interviews are the small tidbits of essential knowledge that some of the interviewees offer training techniques, and ways of using one s body These are gems.I ve self published a number of books myself, and this one carries some of the same flaws that are rife in the genre There are many typographical errors, as well as grammatical mistakes On the other hand, one of the best qualities of this very long work is that the chapters are short it is so information rich that it is much easier to take in knowledge in short bites Others might disagree, but I almost wish this were divided into three books The first section is already five stars The second could usedevelopment and perhaps, some other viewpoints The third could easily be amplified to includeinterviewees who would be exhorted to includeconcrete information on training specifics that make their training either unique or exemplary Even so, this massive book is a very important contribution to the study of martial arts most specifically those of Chinese derivation, but beyond it, any cultivation of the body through the study of martial techniques ( Free ) ☩

book is to present the reader a coherent, clear cut, and in depth view of some of the most perplexing and controversial subjects in the world of martial arts, as well as providing a healthy dose of philosophical outlook on these subjects from various individuals At its core is the author s aspiration to build a stronger theoretical foundation for the discussion of martial arts, while addressing matters in innovative ways, which he had come to believe, would help people to better grasp the nature of these arts There are books by authors who will tell you that some aspects of the martial arts

provide you with the solid, applicable answers and ideas that you could actually understand, and take away with youThis book is chiefly comprised of three parts Part I From the Inside Out External and

their manifestation in our daily lives, with guest articles by various martial arts teachers Part III The Wisdom of Martial Spirits Teachers, and the Things They Hold Dear This part includes various interesting and comprehensive interviews with distinguished martial arts masters, spanning dozens of pages each Every one of the interviewees is a person whose views and ideas are thought provoking
