I started my martial arts training in 1969 and attained an eighth degree black belt with my first instructor. I've trained in Kenpo, Chin-na, Jujitsu, Judo, Tai Chi, and much more. With almost 50 years of training people how to defend themselves, I've learned that the most important skill to learn is how to recognize a threat. Experiences gained from encounters with skilled and unskilled people over the last century have provided me with a keen awareness of what to look for. In this book, you will learn how to recognize a threat from those who have 'been there and done that'. You will learn from their personal mistakes, including situations where they have become the victim and how they put themselves there. I will teach you how to recognize what a threat is and and most importantly how to avoid them. You will learn the three aspects that combine to make a credible threat - means, opportunity, and intent. You will gain an understanding of what to look for and what could have been done to avoid that threat. You will discover how to open your awareness so you can avoid putting yourself and your loved ones at risk. You will become aware of things you would never realize could put you at risk. You will gain simple but effective ways to change from being a victim to being the one who goes home, by learning how you're state of mind must change before you ever go out. Once you have this you you will learn the four battles that you must win in every confrontation. The time to think about it is now. This book is essential listening for anyone interested in self-defense. It offers practical and easy to implement techniques honed over half a century that are just as applicable to the expert as to the beginner.

Sports medicine and sports science are relatively new and rapidly developing fields of knowledge. During the past 2 decades, a significant body of scientific knowledge has been published in these areas. However, there is a demand for practical ref- ences which address sports medicine and science in the context of different sports. This demand is higher in some sports including combat sports, which are highly physically and mentally demanding, and cause challenging issues such as risk of blood-borne infections, weight reduction, head injuries, stress management, and safety for women and children. This book has been developed to meet the needs of the practitioners who work with combat sports athletes in order to improve their health and performance. Combat sports include four Olympic sports (boxing, wrestling, judo, and t- kwondo) and other popular sports such as karate, kick boxing, and Wushu. These sports are popular in most countries of the world, both at competitive and rec- ational levels. Combat sports are practiced by people of different ages for a variety of reasons such as to gain fitness and health benefits and to learn self-defense.
This manual for the complete study of sport judo includes a revised section on the official tournament rules and judging standards of the International Judo Federation.

The first volume of the Prana Martial Arts Training Guides, drawn from Master Paul Rana's 25 years of experience in the martial arts, the Prana Martial Arts Student Handbook is an innovative curriculum drawing from traditional Tae Kwon Do (ITF and WTF), Hapkido, and the practical applications of boxing, kickboxing, Judo, Jiu-Jitsu and MMA. This volume is full of historical and philosophical lessons with an in-depth exploration of the ancient characters of Korean history as well as the classical I-Ching as a primary source of inspiration for traditional Tae Kwon Do philosophy. The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali and meditation with the Eastern Chakra system rounds out this philosophical and practical handbook of the martial arts.
This ground-breaking work is the first to comprehensively document the traditions, philosophy, and techniques of one of the world's most varied, exciting, and practical martial arts-Hapkido. More than 9,000 photographs introduce over 2,000 martial techniques, including strikes, kicks, blocks, avoiding movements, holds, joint locks, chokes, throws, falls, tumbling, ground fighting, and weapons. Numerous closeups show precise grips, leverage methods, pressure points, hitting surfaces, and direction of force. In addition to self-defense techniques, chapters are included on East Asian philosophy, martial arts history, anatomy, meditation, healing, and pressure point fighting, as well as in-depth, previously unpublished interviews with the world's preeminent Hapkido Grandmasters and renowned Grandmasters of related martial arts. Because of similarities between Hapkido and many other martial arts, including Taekwondo, Jujutsu, Aikido, Judo, and Tai Chi Chuan, this book is a useful reference for practitioners of all martial arts styles, from novices to masters. This unique work of exceptional quality is the definitive text on Hapkido, and destined to become a classic of martial arts literature.
Kodokan judo, one of the most well-known martial arts in the world today, was originated by Jigoro Kano (1860-1938). Kano was a martial artist and career educator who developed the art after studying several types of jujutsu, sumo, and Western wrestling. Openness and refinement were hallmarks of his personal and professional style, and he relentlessly searched for the best way to practice, teach, and perform techniques. This biography shows how Kano saw judo as a vehicle not just for self-defense, but for physical, spiritual, and moral development as well. His teachings clearly emphasize his ideal of judo as a way of self-cultivation that leads to physical health, ethical behavior, and ultimately a better society. Kano was a tireless activist who promoted the practical application of judo's principles in all realms of life-in one's personal behavior, for education, in work, for economic benefit, and in both the local and international political arenas. Kano's students were a colorful, sometimes notorious bunch, and this book reveals how several went on to become famous-or infamous-in their own right. They include a prime minister of Japan, the leader of the Communist party in China, a famous novelist, a spy, high-level military leaders, and a media mogul, among many others. The author, John Stevens, gives a fascinating account of Kano's life and times, his teachings, and his interaction with his students.

The study of budo, or the Japanese martial arts for self-cultivation, is a lifelong path toward perfection of character. Here, Dave Lowry, a sword master who has practiced and taught budo for over forty years, addresses the myriad issues, vagaries, and inconsistencies that arise for students of karate-do, judo, kendo, kenjutsu, aikido, and iaido as their training develops. He examines such questions as: &#8226; What is the relationship between the student and teacher, and what should one expect from the other? &#8226; What does rank really mean? &#8226; How do you correctly and sensitively practice with someone less experienced than you? &#8226; What does practice look like as one ages? &#8226; Why do budo arts put such an emphasis on etiquette? &#8226; And many others Lowry also gives practical advice for beginning and advanced students on improving structural integrity in posture and movement, focusing under stress, stances and preparatory actions before engaging with an opponent, and recognizing a good teacher from a bad one.
