Excellent 24. Juli 2012
Von Loren w Christensen - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
Okay, I've been called many names over the years but Science Guy has never been one of them. So when I saw "Science" in the subtitle of Parting the Clouds, I immediately thought that I was the last guy to be reviewing this text. But I took a deep breath and charged up my discipline developed from training in the martial arts since 1965, and opened the first page.

To my delight, I found Harrop's book to be information rich and -- oh so important to science slugs like me -- highly readable, easy to understand, and just plain fascinating.

Finally, the answers, based on science, not speculation, rumor and guesswork, to such questions as:

Who hits harder? MMA? TKD? Kung fu?

What's the power difference between a penetrating blow and a snapping technique? Or a high kick and a low kick?
How can you hit harder, faster and more explosively?

Can you hit hard without this information? Some might but most won't. Can you double maybe triple your force, power and speed by applying the easy-to-understand laws of physics taught in this book? Absolutely.

Highly recommended for teachers, new students and veterans.

A MUST HAVE 16. März 2012
Von Raymond Adams - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
This is a book that has been long overdue. It details the anatomical physics of martial arts techniques. It will clear up disputes that have lasted for many decades as to how a technique should be executed to generate the most power. It is a book that details the proper mechanics of traditional karate. Instructors and students can easily benefit from the many illustrations. It is a must have for all styles of traditional karate.

One for the Martial Arts Library 5. Januar 2014
Von Somyunguy - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This book isn't overhyped; it is that good. I found it to round out my knowledge base by providing the math. The author takes the approach of a traditional martial artist retroactively validating the martial arts by giving the supporting math and available studies behind what they do. Interestingly in other Arts (using SGM Parker's American Kenpo as example) the concepts and principles he finds with math and attempts to explain are already defined and spelled out in layman's terms as it's basis, but in the aforesaid concepts and principles, the math is left out. So it all fits together like a puzzle, each coming from an opposite direction; one as base and one as validation.

In summary, this is an excellent book both for validation and perhaps improvement on what you may be doing, but it isn't a complete picture. I highly recommend the Encyclopedia of Kenpo (and additionally Infinite Insights Into Kenpo, vol. 1-5) which can be found on Amazon, to fully round out the picture. Parting the Clouds provides the validating math, and the Encyclopedia of Kenpo provides the names and descriptions of principles he has found with that math but lacks the definition for.

A must have for the serious martial artist.

If you are serious about martial arts, this book needs to be on your shelf! It is the real physics of any Martial art. As the author is a Shotokan karateka techniques used are Japanese Karate for the most part

should be in every serious martial arts library 8. Januar 2014
Von Shinjitsu - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Having been a student of karate for 52 years.I was alway interested in the science of how we generate our power. But was unable to find anything that explained our art in layman terms. Sensei Harrop book not only give us a scientific explanation. The fighter tips listed thu out book give both student and instructors great teaching points. Having a very large library of martial art books. This would be in the top 10% per cent of great ones. A must for every serious student and instructor.
