Karate, kung fu, t'ai chi, and thousands of other forms of martial arts have been practiced for centuries worldwide. Through movies, cartoons, television, and video games, these fighting techniques are gaining in popularity in the United States each year. But the martial arts are much more than kicking and punching. This well-crafted book explores the underlying concept of the martial arts -- that a strong, disciplined mind is as vital as a powerful body -- through legends and stories, biographies, and a simply written text liberally sprinkled with diagrams, vignettes, and photographs. Thought-provoking and easy to digest, this book is the perfect introduction to the martial arts.
