Do you know your ashiwaza from your elbow strike? Find out with The Way of the Warrior, which features every major style of martial art in existence, bringing ancient and modern arts together in one complete work of reference.

It looks at the history, philosophy, guiding principles, key moves, weaponry, founding members, and famous exponents of individual arts, as well as highlighting unbelievable feats, such as drilling wood with a finger or deflecting swords with the abdomen. Specially commissioned photo-narrative and first-person features trace the daily training schedules of key exponents, providing human-level insights into ways of life and often complex and mystical disciplines.Biographie de l'auteur :
