Martial Mechanics is a comprehensive, easy-to-read guide that explains the science behind essential martial arts techniques. Drawing on his decades of experience as a martial arts student and teacher, Phillip Starr describes how martial artists of all systems can tap into the laws of physics and kinesiology to become faster, more powerful, and hence more effective in actual combat. The book features instructive photographs that demonstrate the correct positioning for practices including stances, footwork, body actions, breathing, alignment, combinations, blocking, and striking techniques.
