Featuring translations of terms from Korean, Chinese and Japanese this dictionary is a must have for any serious martial arts practitioner.

The modern martial artist requires more than a mere vocabulary listing. The modern practitioner wants an in depth exploration not only of the equivalency of meaning but also the cultural and historical background of the terms relevant to the martial arts. To answer that need, this dictionary includes:

  • Over 7,100 of the most important martial arts terms in Korean, Cantonese, Mandarin, Japanese, and Okinawan
  • Full description of techniques
  • Weapons
  • Styles
  • Martial Arts Masters

This martial arts dictionary is a must have for every martial arts student. With its culturally relevant terminology, this book includes everything to satisfy both traditional purists and eclectic practitioners. As this is the combined work of four separate compilers, each a specialist in a region's language and martial arts, this is in fact four dictionaries in one. Each compiler's expertise contributes to the consistent high quality and linguistic accuracy throughout.
