This book represents an international gathering of friends who happen to be highly qualified martial art scholars and practitioners. We have come together in celebration of the more than twenty years the Journal of Asian Martial Arts inspired scholarship in this field to higher academic standards while encouraging all aspects of responsible practice. Each article was written specifically for this banquet, with topics representing the rich variety found in the Asian martial traditions. But what’s a party without guests? As a reader, you are a special guest and part of this celebration. CONSTRUCTIVE THOUGHTS: 9 articles by leading martial art scholars covering history, media, healing, and spiritual and combative components. PRACTICAL APPLICATIONS: 27 articles by renowned masters demonstrating their favorite techniques and offering practice tips.
