9780750956185: Warrior Origins: The Historical and Legendary Links Between the Bodhidharma's, Shaolin Kung-Fu, Karate and Ninjutsu

Essential reading for martial arts practitioners and students of Buddhism

This book considers the universal question posed by both martial artists and practitioners of eastern religions regarding the origins of each style or school. It delineates the ancestries of the most famous and popular martial arts worldwide and identifies the legends and the known historical facts regarding the roots of the mainstream arts of Shaolin Kung-Fu, Karate, and Ninjutsu. By doing so it addresses the history of the famous Bodhidharma as the legendary father of Shaolin Kung-Fu and Zen Buddhism. It offers critical analysis of significant historical dates in the three disciplines and links these to modern martial arts practice and culture. The book also reveals facts on the lives of some of the most prominent and famed individuals of these arts from the modern era including Bruce Lee (Kung Fu) and Fujita Seiko (Ninjutsu).

Descrizione libro The History Press Ltd, United Kingdom, 2014. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. WARRIOR ORIGINS is an account of the history and legends of the world s prominent martial arts and how they share a common heritage. It chronicles the origins of the Shaolin warrior monks, Shaolin Kung-Fu and their celebrated founder, Bodhidharma, who is also considered the first patriarch of Zen (Chan) Buddhism. The book considers Bodhidharma s origins in the context of ancient Persia and its royal houses and continues with the rise of Karate from ancient Okinawan roots to Japan and then into a global sport. It connects the record of Ninja and Ninjutsu and the influence of some of its latter luminaries, including Seiko Fujita, whilst also revealing new evidence on renowned martial artists such as Bruce Lee. This work takes a dramatically original approach to the heart of the martial arts and their founders. Author Dr Hutan Ashrafian, who holds black belt grades in several martial art styles, including a 5th Dan in Okinawan Goju-Ryu Karate and championship medals in Karate and Judo at World and European Masters level, delineates the inheritance of these arts using innovative evolutionary approaches to find previously unidentified links between them. Warrior Origins traces the pattern from Bodhidharma to the remarkable diversity of modern martial arts. Codice libro della libreria AA79780750956185
