Top customer reviews
This volume is organized into five parts or sections. The first part provides an overview of martial art essentials. The second part explains what is required to "walk the walk and talk the talk" when it comes to the martial arts. The third part of this book is my personal favorite because it summarizes numerous martial art styles such as karate, kung-fu, judo, hapkido, and many of systems. The fourth section covers the ten rules in martial art classes and the ten qualities of a good martial arts teacher. The final section has the glossary and sources and resources.
In conclusion, this book is for anyone who desires to have a basic overview of the various martial art systems and styles.
