Martial Arts" by Peter Lewis was published as a history of all the Oriental martial arts. The book does not attempt to teach any of these arts; nor does it provide an exhaustive history of the arts. It is a superficial coverage of the martial arts that would serve the purpose of providing pleasant reading in the waiting room of a doctor or lawyer. Its most outstanding quality is its excellent photographs. So I was very dissapointed when I read this book. It's mostly myths and fairy tales Lewis regurgitates, he gives no sources and never tells anything about the philosophy of martial arts. So if you surf the web and collect material, you could probably write the same book.

"Martial Arts" by Peter Lewis was published as a history of all the Oriental martial arts. The book does not attempt to teach any of these arts; nor does it provide an exhaustive history of the arts. It is a superficial coverage of the martial arts that would serve the purpose of providing pleasant reading in the waiting room of a doctor or lawyer. Its most outstanding quality is its excellent photographs.

The content of the first section includes the internal and external martial arts of China, the martial arts of Korea and the martial arts of Japan. The section on China singles out Ninjutsu, TaeKwonDo, Tai Chi Chuan, Pa Kua, Hsing-I, and others, with and without weapons.

The next section, which focuses on Karate, contains excellent pictures of kata, breaking, and tournament fighting scenes. This is followed by a section titled "The Warrior Art of Japan" which shows how warriors dressed and the weapons they fought with on the battlefield. The next section focuses on the unarmed martial arts of Japan with emphasis on grappling, as in Sumo and Judo, which is followed by a section on the art of Ninjutsu.

The large sections on Japanese arts are followed by a some what smaller, but similar sections on the Korean art of TaeKwonDo.

The final martial arts section, which deals with the arts of Southeast Asia, includes great pictures on Thai boxing.This is followed by a Glossary of terms used in describing all the martial arts.

If you want to start a martial art but are unsure of which one is best for you, I recommend you read through this book. It gives a brief explanation of many of the worlds arts and as such lets you compare them and allows you to see what may best suit your beliefs and what you want to achieve from martial arts. You can then pursue further research based on this knowledge before embarking on a path of training. It is clear to read and immensely interesting.

I really enjoyed this book. It is a great primer on the history of many martial arts as well as a basic descriptor of their techniques and philosophy. As a kid in high school I couldn't put it down.

I didn't like this book, because the subtitle: ORIGINS - PHILOSOPHY - PRACTICE is very misleading. I read a lot about the origins of kung-fu, even in chinese. But I'm sure the origins are NOT a blending of the first episode of the series kung fu (with D. Carradine) and the movie "The 36 chambers of the shaolin monastery"! So I was very dissapointed when I read this book. It's mostly myths and fairy tales Lewis regurgitates, he gives no sources and never tells anything about the philosophy of martial arts. So if you surf the web and collect material, you could probably write the same book. But it's O.K. for a rainy afternoon and some good laughs, if you find something familiar, like the dim mak, known from the movie bloodsport....
