I’ve been attempting recently to understand more about the biology and physiology of why our martial arts moves work the way they do, and this book was part of that quest.
This collection of essays by female martial artists was published in the early 90s, and many of the themes which come up are still relevant today.
This book is an excellent introduction to both Western and Eastern anatomy concepts. It is not excessively detailed, but gives a good grounding in both systems.
I found this book in the library, and I was drawn in by the contents page, which spans large swathes of history and seemed to be quite comprehensive.
From the Edge of Humanity Magazine, a book review relevant to us all.
