Chinese Martial Arts
They are not pretty! Feb 17, Gahlord Dewald rated it really liked it Shelves: physical-culture. Another one that will mess with the mystical creation myth of your martial art. But in a good way. Focus of the book is on actual martial arts, as in combat skills. So you learn a bunch about various soldier skills, weapons, tactics and their development. Dec 19, Andrew Shinn rated it it was amazing.
This is actually a nice historical overview. It's surprisingly balanced for such a short volume.
