Master Martial Arts Like Bruce: Learn the Basic...

Fast forward to the early '70s. It was at this time the "Bruce Lee Phenomenon" hit the West. Enter the Dragon, a major Hollywood-backed film, hit the silver screens. It was explosive; here was a guy who could do almost magical things at blistering speeds, and so, as a direct result of that film, so was born the modern age of martial arts in the West.     The first martial art to really explode as a result of Lee's film was karate. With schools already well established in the UK, they capitalized on the phenomenon by coming out of the back streets and into the school and church halls. Inevitably, this boom faded; people left because it was too hard; to get anywhere was a lifelong commitment, not something achieved in a matter of weeks or months, but years of hard graft. In some ways, it is sad that as a result of the modern age, there are also some excellent but increasingly forgotten martial arts worth investigating.  Today, choosing which martial art you want to do is actually much easier than you think. A great many clubs will offer you a first lesson free, so take advantage of that fact and go and try as many as you can. In this way, you can find out which one suits you best. 1. Language: English.

Kung Fu Panda - Kung Fu Master Edition
3,10 € *
zzgl. 3,99 € Versand

Die Legende erzählt von einem legendären Krieger, dem Drachenkrieger, der es sogar mit den 10.000 Dämonen des Dämonenberges aufnimmt. Insgeheim ist es der größte Traum des liebenswerten, aber tollpatschigen Pandabären Po ein ebensolcher Kung-Fu-Kämpfer zu werden. Sein Vater, eine Gans, hat jedoch andere Pläne für ihn: Po soll eines Tages sein Nudelrestaurant übernehmen. Als der gefürchtete Schneeleopard Tai Lung das Tal des Friedens bedroht und Meister Oogway auf dem Tempelberg den Drachenkrieger erwählen will, der das Tal beschützen soll, möchte sich Po diese Gelegenheit, seine Helden aus nächster Nähe zu bewundern, natürlich nicht entgehen lassen. Nie hätte er jedoch zu träumen gewagt, dass er der Auserwählte sein könnte. Zum großen Entsetzen der Furiosen Fünf - Tigress, Crane, Mantis, Viper und Monkey – und ihres Meisters Shifu soll der schwergewichtige Pandabär, der nichts als Essen im Kopf hat, die Drachenrolle erhalten, die das Geheimnis grenzenloser Macht in sich birgt. Wird es Po, der kaum die Treppenstufen hinauf zum Tempel bewältigen kann, gelingen, seinen Traum zu verwirklichen und ein großer Kung-Fu-Kämpfer zu werden? Nach Shrek und Madagascar präsentiert Dreamworks ein Martial-Arts-Spektakel der besonderen Art: Ein Außenseiter, über den sich alle lustig machen, muss zeigen, was wirklich in ihm steckt und wächst dabei über sich selbst hinaus. Der liebenswerte Po, der alles andere als perfekt ist und ein paar Pfunde zu viel auf den Rippen hat, tritt an, um zu zeigen, dass man alles erreichen kann, wenn man nur an sich glaubt. Vor allem – aber nicht nur – Kinder werden mitfiebern und mit dem dicken Pandabären bangen, wenn er Tai Lung gegenübertreten muss. Dabei kommt weder der Humor zu kurz, noch fehlt es an rasanten Actionszenen, die auch jedem Realfilm zu Ehre gereicht hätten. Denn Kung Fu Panda ist in erste Linie ein richtiger Kung-Fu-Film und erst in zweiter Linie ein Animationsfilm, der auch Kindern gefällt. Insbesondere die Liebe zum Detail, etwa ein wahrer Blütenregen, der Meister Oogway mit sich fort trägt, sowie die Dynamik der Kampfszenen überzeugen voll und ganz. Die Sprecher leisten – sowohl im Original als auch in der deutschen Fassung – ein Übriges, um ihre Figuren glaubhaft zum Leben zu erwecken. Ob Jack Black oder Hape Kerkeling, Dustin Hoffman oder Gottfried John, Angelina Jolie oder Bettina Zimmermann oder Jackie Chan und Lucy Liu - die Rollen sind wahrlich meisterlich besetzt. Der Film ist freigegeben ab sechs, richtet sich aber eher an Kinder ab acht Jahren. Das rasante Tempo könnte jüngere Kinder überfordern und vor allem die Szenen mit Tai Lung sind stellenweise recht beängstigend.

The Art of Learning

Josh Waitzkin knows what it means to be at the top of his game. A public figure since winning his first National Chess Championship at the age of nine, Waitzkin was catapulted into a media whirlwind as a teenager when his father's book Searching for Bobby Fischer was made into a major motion picture. After dominating the scholastic chess world for ten years, Waitzkin expanded his horizons, taking on the martial art Tai Chi Chuan and ultimately earning the title of World Champion. How was he able to reach the pinnacle of two disciplines that on the surface seem so different? 'I've come to realize that what I am best at is not Tai Chi, and it is not chess,' he says. 'What I am best at is the art of learning.' In his riveting new book, The Art of Learning, Waitzkin tells his remarkable story of personal achievement and shares the principles of learning and performance that have propelled him to the top -- twice. With a narrative that combines heart-stopping martial arts wars and tense chess face-offs with life lessons that speak to all of us, The Art of Learning takes readers through Waitzkin's unique journey to excellence. He explains in clear detail how a well-thought-out, principled approach to learning is what separates success from failure. Waitzkin believes that achievement, even at the championship level, is a function of a lifestyle that fuels a creative, resilient growth process. Rather than focusing on climactic wins, Waitzkin reveals the inner workings of his everyday method, from systematically triggering intuitive breakthroughs, to honing techniques into states of remarkable potency, to mastering the art of performance psychology. Through his own example, Waitzkin explains how to embrace defeat and make mistakes work for you. Does your opponent make you angry? Waitzkin describes how to channel emotions into creative fuel. As he explains it, obstacles are not obstacles but challenges to overcome, to spur the growth process by turning weaknesses into strengths. He illustrates the exact routines that he has used in all of his competitions, whether mental or physical, so that you too can achieve your peak performance zone in any competitive or professional circumstance. In stories ranging from his early years taking on chess hustlers as a seven year old in New York City's Washington Square Park, to dealing with the pressures of having a film made about his life, to International Chess Championships in India, Hungary, and Brazil, to gripping battles against powerhouse fighters in Taiwan in the Push Hands World Championships, The Art of Learning encapsulates an extraordinary competitor's life lessons in a page-turning narrative.

Budo: Teachings Of The Founder Of Aikido
21,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Morihei Ueshiba is rightly known as one of the world's greatest martial artists for his creation of aikido, the synthesis of his superb technique and his profound spiritual insight into the nature of the universe. Aikido is much more than just another fighting style, it is a holistic approach to life that Morihei described as 'a divine path inspired by the gods that leads to truth, goodness, and beauty.' Sadly, Morihei left few writings to explain his martial arts philosophy, preferring to teach his disciples by direct example. Aikido students will be familiar with photographs and film footage of Morihei as an old man, effortlessly defeating his much younger opponents, but very little has been published about Morihei's prewar years, when he was perfecting aiki-budo, as aikido was then known. In 1938 Morihei wrote Budo (Martial Way) as an instruction manual and a statement of the aims and spirit of his martial arts philosophy. Budo, however, was never made available to the general public, and it even contains the injunction that 'these techniques ... should not be disclosed indiscriminately to the public.' Now with the worldwide popularity of aikido rivaling that of judo and karate-do, the Aikikai Foundation and the Ueshiba family have decided that it is time for this historic treatise of the martial arts to be translated into English, and made available to general readers and students of aikido all over the world. Reproduced faithfully from the original, this seminal work contains one of the founder's few personal statements of his basic principles, expressed both in prose and mystical poetry. The text is accompanied by photographs of Morihei illustrating the aikido techniques he describes. This martial arts classic is preceded by an introductory biographical essay on Morihei by his son Kisshomaru Ueshiba, the present chairman of the Aikikai Foundation. This enlightening work recounts the founder's early life, his inspirational 'encounter with the religious mystic Onisaburo Deguchi, and the spiritual revelations that led him to develop the art of aikido. The volume concludes with a series of action photographs of the founder demonstrating aikido techniques, taken at a private dojo in Tokyo in 1936. This section also includes selected photographs of Morihei in action in 1951. The more than 400 historic photographs shown here provide an unequalled opportunity to observe the lifelong devotion to aikido and the continuity of performance that characterized Morihei's approach to his art.
