[Clements'] final conclusions surprise . . . leaving the reader satisfied as well as educated. (Hugh David MyM magazine)

A detailed study of the interaction between folklore, nationalism, religion and politics in the east Asian martial arts . . . refreshingly frank. (NEO magazine)

From Shaolin warrior monks to the movies of Bruce Lee, a new history of the evolution of East Asian styles of unarmed combat, from Kung Fu to Ninjutsu.
