This book covers the general laws governing human biomechanics through an extensive review of martial arts techniques and references to fundamental theory. Using straightforward mathematics and physics, this work covers indepth the anatomical foundation of biomechanics and physiological foundation of human motion through specific and relevant martial arts applications. This book also covers the kinematics and kinetics of biomechanics via examples from martial arts and their comparison to different sports techniques. It is written to be used and referenced by biomechanical professionals and martial arts enthusiasts.
