Riassunto: In The Principles of Unarmed Combat, Black Belt Magazine columnist Mark Jacobs breaks down the essential skills of empty-handed martial arts. Whether you train to win in the ring or survive on the street, this book will show you why some fighting skills work and why some don't. Plus you'll learn how to troubleshoot problem areas in your training, no matter what style you practice. Mark Jacobs has interviewed doctors and physicists, analyzed key scientific studies and synthesized the best available information about how to make martial arts work better. The result is a comprehensive, heavily researched guide to everything you should know about striking and grappling, offense and defense, and even the mental aspects of training. The Principles of Unarmed Combat is made up of over 50 chapters, organized into 10 information packed sections. You'll get all of the topics you'd expect to find in a comprehensive guide to the fighting arts: posture, footwork, positioning, striking, kicking, takedowns and groundfighting. But unlike most how-to books, you'll also get hard-to-find insider information on advanced topics like transitioning, fighting from the clinch, pain compliance, fight psychology, real world defense strategies and the dark side of sport fighting. Mark Jacobs has combined his decades in the martial arts with his skills as a professional journalist to create one of the most comprehensive books ever written on the skills, techniques, strategies and tactics of unarmed combat.
L'autore: Starting his martial arts studies as a child with goju karate, Mark Jacobs went on to train extensively in boxing, kickboxing, shootfighting, the Gene LeBell grappling system and kali, among other styles. As a professional journalist, he has written on martial arts related topics for publications such as Sports Illustrated and Men's Fitness. He currently serves as a contributing editor and monthly columnist for Black Belt magazine.
