  • Advancements in the Scientific Study of Combative Sports

    Combative sports, like boxing and the martial arts, have been a mainstay of competitive athletics throughout the history of mankind. While these sports are controversial in nature, the athletic endeavors of boxing and mixed martial arts have become multi-billion dollar industries enjoyed by millions of fans around the world. Research on these sports has spanned many domains including psychology, sociology, physiology, sports medicine and biomechanics. Each of these approaches to the topic of combative sports has provided many interesting findings. Further, each field has offered advancements that have improved the sports' training, judging, safety, and associated medical care. However, until now, research within each of these domains has been published in journals specifically targeting scholars in that field. Thus, interdisciplinary research on this topic has remained rare and has seldom been promoted. This book seeks to provide a central outlet for the current research on combative sports, provoke interdisciplinary approaches to the field, and provoke further research and advancements on the topic. For scholars interested in combative sports, various aspects (e.g., mental, physical and cultural) of athletics and sports medicine, this book will be useful as both a starting point and a reference guide for the field.

  • Fighting for a Gender[ed] Identity
    - An Ethnographic Examination of White Collar Boxers

    Travis Satterlund, PhD, JD, is a sociologist with expertise in qualitative research methods. As a NIAAA Ruth L. Kirschstein post-doctoral research fellow at UC Berkeley's School of Public Health, he studied prevention science, research ethics, and methodological and analysis strategies. Dr. Satterlund has been the lead researcher on a number of state and federally funded grants, and has published extensively in peer-reviewed scholarly journals in the field of sociology, public health, and law, including articles in Preventing Chronic Disease, Sociological Perspectives, and Tobacco Control. Dr. Satterlund has also published a book on public school students' rights in the wake of the safe school movement, and teaches sociology courses at Columbia College. Fighting for a Gender[ed] Identity is an ethnographic exploration into the increasingly popular world of "e;white collar"e; boxing. Travis Satterlund, a sociologist, spent over a year and a half researching a boxing gym and its participants, toiling alongside gym members, learning the boxing trade, sweating and enjoying the doses of macho from banging heads with fellow pugilists. He learned how to throw a variety of punch combinations; how to defend and parry punches; how to "e;take"e; a punch; he learned of the hard work, commitment, and dedication necessary to become even an average boxer; and, most importantly, he learned about the culture of KO Gym and its members. While expecting to find a gym filled with young, working-class, non-white men-like he saw on television and in movies-he was surprised when he initially arrived at KO Gym. Though there were indeed diverse, young men at the gym who trained seriously for competitions, the place was also filled with white men-both young and middle-aged-who were also training. Moreover, there were a couple of women training, and the two trainers were white, one of whom was a woman. This countered his expectations and piqued his interest. Satterlund wanted to learn about these mostly white boxers that he would later learn were almost entirely middle to upper middle-class. What brought them to the gym? What did they get out of it? Sociologically, what was happening?This book reveals that gym members used the cultural meanings associated with boxing as resources to construct boxing as an activity from which they could derive gendered identity rewards. As such, Satterlund shows how authenticity of the gym was socially constructed to meet these identity rewards and also to resolve these dilemmas. Moreover, while most of the men at the gym had secure middle-class jobs, these jobs were not the primary basis for their feelings of self-worth, especially in relation to their identity as "e;men."e; In essence, then, the boxing gym offered a means for the men to compensate for their inability to signify power, control, and toughness in their professional lives. Women also sought identity rewards from boxing and had reasons to want to signify masculine qualities. For them, too, boxing was a way to signify agency and strength. Yet, they also faced dilemmas in seeking to distance themselves from other "e;feminine"e; women without being viewed as too masculine. At the same time, however, social class complicated matters considerably, creating other issues for both the men and the women. Satterlund thus uses the context of KO Gym and its membership to analyze the many nuances of these gender identity-related issues, focusing not only on how social class both disrupts and facilitates how a gendered space is created, but how gender inequalities are created, maintained and reproduced in white collar boxing.Target Audience:Academic libraries, Sociology of Sport courses, Sociology of Gender courses, Men and Masculinities courses

  • Chinese Gong Fu af Gonzalez R.F. Gonzalez Spar 16%
    - Toward a Body-Centered Understanding
    af Gonzalez R.F. Gonzalez

    Gong fu, the indigenous martial art of China, was exported into American popular culture through numerous "e;kung fu"e; movies in the 20th century. Perhaps the most renowned of the martial arts in the U.S., gong fu remains often misunderstood, perhaps because of its esoteric practices that include aspects of Daoism, Confucianism, Buddhism and other syncretic elements. Using the science of embodiment--the study of the interaction between body, mind, cognition, behavior and environment--this book explores the relationships among practitioner, praxis, spirituality, philosophy and the body in gong fu. Drawing on familiar routines, films, artifacts and art, the author connects the reader to ancient Chinese culture, philosophy, myth, shamanism and ritual.

  • Lost Soul of Eamonn Magee af Paul Gibson
    af Paul Gibson

    The remarkable story of Eamonn Magee's life takes in a childhood lived during the height of The Troubles, a youth spent involved with the IRA, and the constant presence of drink, drugs, gambling and violence throughout his life. It may be hard to believe but it was against the background of all this that Eamonn won the WBU world welterweight and Commonwealth light welterweight titles. The author, Paul Gibson, has managed to decipher a very dark, very troubled, very flawed individual who happened to have an exceptional gift to box at the highest world level. The Lost Soul of Eamonn Magee reads like the screenplay of the kind of gritty rags-to-riches-to-rags boxing story that Hollywood producers seem to love.

    Questions of class and gender in Appalachia have, in the wake of the 2016 presidential election and the runaway success of Hillbilly Elegy, moved to the forefront of national conversations about politics and culture. From Todd Snyder, a first generation college student turned college professor, comes a passionate commentary on these themes in a family memoir set in West Virginia coal country. 12 Rounds in Lo's Gym is the story of the author's father, Mike "e;Lo"e; Snyder, a fifth generation West Virginia coal miner who opened a series of makeshift boxing gyms with the goal of providing local at-risk youth with the opportunities that eluded his adolescence. Taking these hardscrabble stories as his starting point, Snyder interweaves a history of the region, offering a smart analysis of the costs-both financial and cultural-of an economy built around extractive industries.Part love letter to Appalachia, part rigorous social critique, readers may find 12 Rounds in Lo's Gym-and its narrative of individual and community strength in the face of globalism's headwinds-a welcome corrective to popular narratives that blame those in the region for their troubles. 

  • Hidden in Plain Sight af Ellis Amdur Spar 20%
    af Ellis Amdur

    Ellis Amdur's writing on martial arts has been groundbreaking. In Dueling with O-sensei, he challenged practitioners that the moral dimension of martial arts is expressed in acts of integrity, not spiritual platitudes and the deification of fantasized warrior-sages. In Old School, he applied both academic rigor and keen observation towards some of the classical martial arts of Japan, leavening his writing with vivid descriptions of many of the actual practitioners of these wonderful traditions. His first edition of Hidden in Plain Sight was a discussion of esoteric training methods once common, but now all but lost within Japanese martial arts. These methodologies encompassed mental imagery, breath-work, and a variety of physical techniques, offering the potential to develop skills and power sometimes viewed as nearly superhuman. Usually believed to be the provenance of Chinese martial arts, Amdur asserted that elements of such training still remain within a few martial traditions: literally, 'hidden in plain sight.'Two-thirds larger, this second edition is so much more. Amdur digs deep into the past, showing the complexity of human strength, its adaptation to varying lifestyles, and the nature of physical culture pursued for martial ends. Amdur goes into detail concerning varieties of esoteric power training within martial arts, culminating in a specific methodology known as 'six connections' or 'internal strength.' With this discussion as a baseline, he then discusses the transfer of esoteric power training from China to various Japanese jAAjutsu systems as well as Japanese swordsman-ship emanating from the Kurama traditions. Finally, he delves into the innovative martial tradition of DaitAAryAA and its most important offshoot, aikidAA showing how the mercurial, complicated figures of Takeda Sokaku and Morihei Ueshiba were less the embodiment of something new, than a re-imagining of their past

    In the world of martial arts, many things that look amazing are less so in reality; they seem impressive but are impractical at best. In Mastery Mind-Set, author Craig R. E. Krohn delivers a real martial arts methodology that focuses on internal techniques through which truly amazing things are possible.Derived from masters of Okinawa and Japanese arts, Krohns methods demonstrate how to approach your training in a manner that can help you achieve a higher level of mastery. After a primer on the fundamentals of the mastery mind-set, Krohn delves into the concept of internal power, which helps the practitioner find a sense of body connectedness that allows the absorption of full-power blows without injury. In addition, Mastery Mind-Set shows how internal power can be used to create devastating punches and kicks that can disrupt internal organs and shatter an opponents defenses.This guide discusses specific techniques and challenges the practitioner to let go of outdated training practices that might be hindering his or her development. It presents mental exercises that can transform an external martial art practice into an internal one. Krohn shows that, with practice and mental conditioning, powerful secrets can be applied to your martial arts and your life to allow you to perform the impossible.
