The term “martial art” has been defined for thousands of years and continues to have its own definition to every practitioner who has ever donned a gi, or a sash, bowed to an opponent in the ring, sat in contemplative practice on a mat, or defended their home and family from danger.
Inside the Book:
Martial arts instructors and masters will define martial arts in their own way and they will impress that upon their students. That message will be received and changed by every student to come after them and will be a function of their own situation, their own beliefs, their time in history and their place in the world. The definition of a martial art is ever-changing, and like the oceans of the world, will continue to change and reshape themselves, and transform the lives of those involved.
No definition will ever be correct, nor will it ever be incorrect. This book distills the definition of the martial arts to the single greatest lesson learned by some of the most distinguished names in martial arts from around the world. By answering this one question, martial arts masters and amateur students alike share their lesson with others, be it simple or profound.
