Product Description

This is the most readable and complete martial arts survery available. Covering Karate, Kendo, Kung Fu, Judo, and Aikido as well as the lesser known disciplines of Budo, Hapkido, and the Thai martial arts, it provides a thorough overview, including the history, basic moves, principles, equipment, and terminology of each, illustrated with 150 superb line drawings. For those wishing to pursue a martial arts discipline, a full list of addresses for clubs and organizations is provided.

The study of these ancient disciplines provides an opportunity to develop mind and body to a perfect pitch of mental fitness. The Overlook Martial Arts Handbook is quite simply the most authoritative, accurate, and reliable guide to the sport ever produced.
