All of the major arts and styles, and many of the minor ones, are historically traced in The Original Martial Arts Encyclopedia as it explores the martial arts, its history, and martial arts pioneers around the world. There are hundreds of historical photos of of important martial artists including Benny "The Jet" Urquidez, Chuck Norris, Joe Lewis, and Bill "Superfoot" Wallace in the point-fighting days. From Judo's founder Jigaro Kano to World Judo Champion Gene LeBell, from martial arts legend Bruce Lee to his son, action film star Brandon Lee The Original Martial Arts Encyclopedia has it all. The text has been written by some of the world's finest martial arts journalists. The photography has been taken by many of the most gifted photo-journalists the arts have to offer. The Original Martial Arts Encyclopedia is a tour-de-force of martial arts facts, biographies, historical photos, and insightful contributors. Highly recommended! -- Midwest Book ReviewFrom School Library Journal:
YA-There's a wealth of information here, including terms used in various martial arts, history, and hundreds of the important men and women involved in these sports, accompanied by lots of black-and-white photographs. The narration is presented in an entertaining manner and will make readers want more details. The discussion on weapons is particularly explicit and complete with clear line drawings. Movements are explained step-by-step, but without sequential pictures. One section presents the history of martial arts in movies. Students involved in tae kwon do may be disappointed that it receives a fraction of the coverage of karate, but overall, this volume is quite comprehensive.
