32 Lethal Karate Strikes: Secrets of the Meridians
Cliff Field Paladin Press 1581607377 / 9781581607376 PAPERBACK New 
1581607377 It is said that the original martial arts masters would only give their "secrets" to the most trusted students?and never to Westerners. From the perspective of acupoint strikes it is easy to see why these claims originated: the masters knew that Westerners could not understand the underlying concepts. Until now. Veteran martial artist Cliff Field has been a physician for nearly 30 years and has used acupuncture in his practice for nearly that long. His background in both Eastern and Western medicine, as well as his years studying karate, gives him a unique insight into how strikes to specific points on the human body can cause unexpected?even lethal?damage. In this book, Field gives you a deep understanding of human anatomy, physiology, physics, biomechanics, and energetics?the flow of chi through the meridians?as it pertains to martial arts techniques. This easy-to-understand examination of karate from both a Western medical perspective and an Eastern energetic perspective demonstrates how to attack the body at its weakest points, both anatomically and energetically. Cliff Field, M.D., graduated from Hahnemann University in 1980 and finished his residency in family medicine in 1983. He received certification in acupuncture between 1983 and 1984. He began his martial arts studies in 1986 and earned his black belt in 1999 from the International Karate League (IKL), founded by Walter Nishioka. He currently holds the rank of sandan and is a sensei of a dojo. This book is a result of his combined knowledge of Western and Eastern medicine and martial arts.

38 People's History of Sports in the United States: 250 Years of Politics, Protest, People, and Play (New Press People's History)
Zirin, Dave New Press, The 1595584773 / 9781595584779 PAPERBACK New 
1595584773 New. No dust jacket as issued. Brand New! Support Pacific Northwest Independent Booksellers! Trade paperback (US). Glued binding. 302 p. Audience: General/trade. In this long-awaited book from the rising superstar of sportswriting, Dave Zirin offers a riotously entertaining chronicle of larger-than-life sporting characters and dramatic contests and what amounts to an alternative history of the United States as seen through the games its people played. Through Zirin's eyes, sports are never mere games, but a reflection of and spur toward the political conflicts that shape American society. Half a century before Jackie Robinson was born, the black ballplayer Moses Fleetwood Walker brandished a revolver to keep racist fans at bay, then took his regular place in the lineup. In the midst of the Depression, when almost no black athletes were allowed on the U.S. Olympic team, athletes held a Counter Olympics where a third of the participants were African American. A People's History of Sports in the United States is replete with surprises for seasoned sports fans, while anyone interested in history will be amazed by the connections Zirin draws between politics and pop flies. As Jeff Chang, author of Can't Stop Won't Stop, puts it: "After you read him, you'll never see sports the same way again. " "This sprawling, insightful, and contrarian book is worth reading for its portrayal of the rebel athletes to whom it is dedicated, and to whom we are all indebted. " Time Dave Zirin is also the author of What's My Name Fool! and Welcome to the Terrordome.

39 Scientific Self-defense

1581605293 New. No dust jacket as issued. Brand New! Support Radical Independent Pacific Northwest Booksellers! 165 p. One of the most highly sought volumes in the library of legendary hand-to-hand combat manuals is finally available from Paladin Press. W.E. Fairbairn's Scientific Self-Defence, published in 1931 as a slightly modified reprint of Defendu (1926), outlines the brutally effective close-quarters combat program developed during Fairbairn's renowned service with the Shanghai Municipal Police. Fairbairn's straightforward techniques for defending against various holds, dealing with assailants armed with guns or knives, applying truly effective holds and throws, using the club and walking stick for self-defense, and other areas of close-in fighting have had an extraordinary influence on the development of the combat arts. His immense impact on generations of fighting men from an elite cadre of instructors who trained soldiers in realistic hand-to-hand combat during World War II to today's practitioners of hard-core self-defense can now be studied directly from the source in this quality reprint edition of Scientific Self-Defence. Captain W.E. Fairbairn taught unarmed combat to the famed British Commandos and the U.S. armed forces during World War II. Before the war he served as assistant commissioner of the Shanghai Police Force. He was the inventor of the Fairbairn Commando Knife and the author of the classics Get Tough and Shooting to Live.

1604862041 New. No dust jacket as issued. Brand New! Support Independent Pacific Northwest Booksellers! 32 p. Radicals, feminists, environmentalists. Activists for animal rights, human rights, civil rights. There are plenty of rebels and dissidents putting their asses on the line. Conversely, there's never been a shortage of reactionaries seeking to repress such vision and passion. Learning how to fight and/or defend yourself is not the same as promoting belligerent, anti-social behavior. While talk of non-violence is understandable and the struggle for peace has never been more essential, let's face it: odds are that sooner or later you're going to end up in a confrontation that may escalate into physical violence. So, why not be prepared? Self-Defense for Radicals will get you off and running in the right direction. From eye gouges to groin punches--you'll find a powerful collection of tactics with which we can fight back. Interspersed with words of wisdom and guidance from Emma Goldman, Bruce Lee, Angela Davis, and even Patrick Swayze, this pocket-sized pamphlet will inspire readers to not only speak truth to power but also deliver a sharp elbow to power's jutting jaw. Presented in the street-smart style we've come to expect from Mickey Z., Self-Defense for Radicals dares you to re-examine what we perceive as acceptable behavior--both by the oppressors and the revolutionaries.

45 Soccer vs. the State: Tackling Football and Radical Politics
Kuhn, Gabriel PM Press 1604860537 / 9781604860535 PAPERBACK New 
1604860537 Soccer has turned into a multi-billion dollar industry. Professionalism and commercialization dominate its global image. Yet the game retains a rebellious side, maybe more so than any other sport co-opted by money makers and corrupt politicians. From its roots in working-class England to political protests by players and fans, and a current radical soccer underground, the notion of football as the "people's game" has been kept alive by numerous individuals, teams, and communities. This book not only traces this history, but also reflects on common criticisms: soccer ferments nationalism, serves right-wing powers, fosters competitiveness. Acknowledging these concerns, alternative perspectives on the game are explored, down to practical examples of egalitarian DIY soccer! Soccer vs. the State serves both as an orientation for the politically conscious football supporter and as an inspiration for those who try to pursue the love of the game away from television sets and big stadiums, bringing it to back alleys and muddy pastures.

A bicycle repair manual that is hand illustrated and conversationally toned-with an understanding that we don't all come out of the womb with an innate understanding of mechanics and bicycles. Meant to be a friendly gateway into the world of fixing your not-so-brand-new commuter bike, from Ethan and Shelley of the Plan B Bike Project and French Quarter Bicycles in New Orleans. This book also reprints the original four issues of Chainbreaker zine, whose masters were destroyed in Hurricane Katrina flooding. A great book for introduction or just someone who wants to geek out about bikes. "Shelley and Ethan obviously put a great deal of time and energy into not only riding and thinking about bicycles, but also examining their relationship to them. With warmth, charm, and knowledge to spare, Chainbreaker gives the joy of bicycle maintenance back to who it belongs: People. I got down and dirty with my bike and this eminently accessible and well-compiled volume moments after bringing it home, and I'm sure to dog-ear many copies of this book in my travels. One of the most inspiring, dedicated projects in the world of independent publishing. " [Golnar Nikpour, MAXIMUMROCKNROLL].

49 The Ancient Art Of Life And Death: The Book of Dim-Mak
Bauer, Rick; Walker, Flane Paladin Press 1581605749 / 9781581605747 PAPERBACK New 
1581605749 New. No dust jacket as issued. Brand New! Support Radical Independent Pacific Northwest Booksellers! Trade paperback (US). Glued binding. 201 p. Contains: Illustrations. Audience: General/trade. Contrary to popular myth, the original purpose of dim-mak was not the training of assassins. It was an intensive study of the medical arts that incorporated the martial arts, and its ultimate goal was to heal, not to destroy. True to the intent of the ancient Chinese masters, here is an undiluted, holistic study of dim-mak as both a martial and a healing art. A modern supplement to the handful of classical texts in existence, it preserves the integrity of the traditional teachings while tearing down the walls of mystery and intrigue that surround the art. After providing a historical overview of dim-mak and Traditional Chinese Medicine, the book explores the physiological mechanism of dim-mak from Eastern and Western perspectives. In addition, it offers a rare look at the fabled 36-Chamber training sequence traditionally used to teach dim-mak; in-depth analyses of each of the acupoints on the 12 main meridians, including their medicinal uses, martial applications and antidotes; and an introduction to the herbal pharmacology that was an integral part of traditional dim-mak training. Those seeking a balanced, professional perspective on dim-mak will find this insightful guide an indispensable resource. For academic study only. A. Flane Walker is a traditional taoist martial artist, acupuncturist, herbalist and student of Asiduedro Adlawana, Walker Pinkett, and Mastuetsu Kushubi. He was the last of Master Kushubi's students to be taught the complete 36-Chamber training sequence. Among his other accomplishments, Mr. Walker has served as vice president of Tiger Yangs Moo Ye Do International, and taught at West Coast Hotokan headquarters, where he and the late Edwin Hamile "compared and exchanged concepts. " Mr. Walker is now considered the Grand Master of the Won Hop Loong Chuan system of martial arts. A martial artist and longtime student of A. Flane Walker, Richard C.

61 Upscale Nine-Ball
Koehler, Jack H. Sportology Pubns 0962289078 / 9780962289071 PERFECT PAPERBACK New 
0962289078 UPSCALE NINE-BALL is intended for intermediate to advanced pool players. Entire chapters are devoted to shots and situations associated specifically with the game of NINE-BALL.Does a particular shooting accomplishment, on one table, have universal meaning? Not really; for example, it is much easier to run nine balls on a table with large pockets than to run nine balls on a table that has small pockets. Until now the relitive difficulty of pocketing balls had to be described subjectively. This book describes an objective way of evaluating relative pocket difficulty (Chapter 2).Have you ever wondered how your NINE-BALL skills compare to those of your friends across the country? Are you playing better today than you did five years ago? Do you play better with an 18-ounce stick than with a 20-ounce stick? Without an objective way of evaluating your game skills, you can only guess at the snswers to these questions. By using the KOEHLER SKILL RATING SYSTEM (Chapter 18) you can answer these questions objectively.This book describes, in detail, all the various handicapping systems. The value of each type of handicap varies with the skill of the players. You can now determine exactly how much each handicap is worth to you as an individual. The "skip handicap system" (Chapter 19) is a new system that can be fine-tuned to an extent that has never befor been possible.
