Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Martial Artist's Book of Yoga opens with a brief introduction describing the ancient connection between yoga and martial arts. Next the authors explains some limited but important background anatomy.

However, the vast majority of the book is the practice sections. Each of these sections focus on a specific martial art practice, such as kicks, strikes etc. Each section explains the varies elements that are needed to be successful with the particular practice and examines in depth specific movements from different traditions, such as a karate kick etc. Each of these sections then ends by teaching specific yoga poses that will help the reader better develop the strength, flexibility and mental focus to succeed in that area of practice.

Synopsis:

The perfect training supplement for martial artists, The Martial Artist's Book of Yoga shows how the ancient practice of yoga was the genesis of all martial arts. It clearly illustrates how specific yoga poses can directly improve one's martial arts abilities, with asanas that the reader can easily incorporate into a balanced workout.

Designed for those practicing any martial art including judo, karate, kung fu, tae kwon do, jujitsu, and hapkido, the book explains the training needs and challenges of the various universal techniques: kicks, strikes, blocks, throws, falls, joint locks, and grappling. Then the author identifies the underlying fundamentals necessary to advance one's skill in each area and presents a series of yoga poses specially selected to make those improvements - from increased flexibility and strength to better body control and balance.
