The eagerly anticipated updated return of a bestselling martial arts classic The leaders of Tae Kwon Do, an Olympic sport and one of the worldÍs most popular martial arts, are fond of saying that their art is ancient and filled with old dynasties and superhuman feats. In fact, Tae Kwon Do is as full of lies as it is powerful techniques. Since its rough beginnings in the Korean military 60 years ago, the art empowered individuals and nations, but its leaders too often hid the painful truths that led to that empowerment „ the gangsters, secret-service agents, and dictators who encouraged cheating, corruption, and murder. A Killing Art: The Untold History of Tae Kwon Do takes you into the cults, geisha houses, and crime syndicates that made Tae Kwon Do. It shows how, in the end, a few key leaders kept the art clean and turned it into an empowering art for tens of millions of people in more than 150 countries. A Killing Art is part history and part biography „ and a wild ride to enlightenment. This new and revised edition of the bestselling book contains previously unnamed sources and updated chapters.

Sports medicine and sports science are relatively new and rapidly developing fields of knowledge. During the past 2 decades, a significant body of scientific knowledge has been published in these areas. However, there is a demand for practical ref- ences which address sports medicine and science in the context of different sports. This demand is higher in some sports including combat sports, which are highly physically and mentally demanding, and cause challenging issues such as risk of blood-borne infections, weight reduction, head injuries, stress management, and safety for women and children. This book has been developed to meet the needs of the practitioners who work with combat sports athletes in order to improve their health and performance. Combat sports include four Olympic sports (boxing, wrestling, judo, and t- kwondo) and other popular sports such as karate, kick boxing, and Wushu. These sports are popular in most countries of the world, both at competitive and rec- ational levels. Combat sports are practiced by people of different ages for a variety of reasons such as to gain fitness and health benefits and to learn self-defense.

What do players across such different sports such as Buster Posey, Tom Brady, and Tiger Woods have in common? Their injuries have shaped the world of sports and how sports medicine is approached. When you hear stories of Kobe traveling abroad to receive blood platelet injections, or Olympians using low-oxygen training masks, or how an NFL player bounced back from an ACL or MCL tear, these techniques were all developed by surgeons who had to fix the broken athletes who came to them. Jonathan Gelber has compiled a list of the most impactful injuries in Tommy John’s Elbow and Tiger Woods’s Back: Injuries and Tragedies That Transformed Careers, Sports, and Society and the ripple effect they have had in how modern sports are played today. Whether it is through surgeries or rule changes, the game has had to evolve with every gruesome injury or, in some cases, even death. Among the athletes featured in this book are: • Tommy John and how the surgery that came about in his name changed the game of baseball • Yao Ming, Bill Walton, and other NBA stars, and how foot injuries affected their careers • Dale Earnhardt and how his devastating crash led to new rules and safety concerns for NASCAR • And many more! “My experience working with Skyhorse is always a positive collaboration. The editors are first-rate professionals, and my books receive top-shelf treatment. I truly appreciate our working relationship and hope it continues for years to come.” –David Fischer, author

Cody Garbrandt grew up in a rough town in the Central Appalachian region of Ohio, surrounded by a longstanding culture of fighting—and drugs. Raised in this environment by a single mom (his dad left him at the young age of three to reside in the Ohio State Penitentiary), Cody grew up fighting, and he grew up wild. His future seemed predestined to end in the coal mines, or in prison. Thankfully, Cody had visions of something more. His American Dream? Mixed Martial Arts. But a path to success wasn’t clear. He spent as much time fighting in the streets as he did in the gym—one bad decision away from losing everything. Then, at age 20, Cody’s brother introduced him to five-year old Maddux Maple. Maddux was deathly ill with leukemia, his survival by no means assured. A unique friendship developed as they made a promise to each other: Maddux would beat cancer, and Cody would make it to the UFC and become world champion. Through five long years of pain and hardship, they both persevered; Cody, through the agony and sacrifices of fighting his way to the top, and Maddux through the horrors of chemotherapy. They loved and supported each other. They served as each other’s inspiration. And in December 2016, they made good on their pact: Cody won his UFC Championship belt, which he promptly presented to Maddux—the boy who had beaten cancer into remission. This is their story.

An in-depth look into the physics behind martial arts Whether you are an experienced martial artist or a curious enthusiast, this book gives you an “unfair advantage” by unraveling the complex science of effective fighting techniques and examining the core principles that make them work. Did you know? • Momentum is for knocking people over • Energy is for breaking bones and causing pain • A haymaker travels 3.14159 times farther than a jab • You are only an “object” when you are rigid Fight Like a Physicist blends inquiry, skepticism, and irreverent humor—all while punching holes in myth and mysticism. Highlights include • Making physics your “unfair advantage,” in the ring and on the street • Examining center of mass, pi, levers, wedges, angular momentum, and linear momentum for martial artists • Reducing traumatic brain injury in contact sports • Exposing the illusion of safety provided by gloves and helmets • Overturning conventional wisdom on compliance during an assault • Busting up Hollywood action clichés Fight Like a Physicist reads like a manifesto on the rational practice of martial arts. It’s intelligent, fun, and dangerous—and nothing short of iconoclastic.
