Product Description

With more than two thousand entries, this pioneering reference includes a wealth of terms and technical nomenclature, techniques, styles, weapons, and advanced fighting theories pertaining to the martial arts, together with phonetics, literal translations, and customary meaning. The entries are culled from English, Japanese, Korean, Chinese, Indonesian, Hindustani, Polynesian, and Philipino--all the languages of the martial arts lexicon. "Terms for martial arts disciplines including judo, karate plus lesser-known forms such as Thai kickboxing are defined clearly and precisely." (Library Journal)

Emil Farkas is an internationally acclaimed authority on self-defense and author of The Complete Martial Arts Catalogue. Co-author John Corcoran has written more than three hundred articles on the subject of martial arts, and has been the editor at both Professional Karate and Black Belt magazines.
