Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This comprehensive work outlines the essential principles and techniques that define the art of striking in most martial arts. More than 1400 photographs introduce over 400 practical techniques encompassing all types of strikes: hand strikes, elbow strikes, standing kicks, aerial kicks, ground kicks, head and body strikes, advanced combinations, avoiding and blocking skills, defenses against punches and kicks, and pressure point attacks. Introductory chapters present important technical priniciples, East Asian energetic concepts, and 109 fundamental skills encompassing hitting surfaces, stances, footwork and common methods of falling. Precise anatomical illustrations and descriptions of 106 common Oriental pressure points, and a visual comparison of different martial arts make this an invaluable resource for all martial styles.
