From popular forms such as ju-jutsu, karate, and kung-fu to the less familiar practices of kyudo, kendo, and yabusame, this encyclopedic reference contains the rules of contest for all the major martial arts. Comprehensive and well-illustrated, its alphabetically arranged entries cover both technical and historical aspects. Hundreds of diagrams and drawings illustrate the finer points of each technique, and cross references further clarify the relationships between the martial arts of one country and another and related styles.
