BLURB

People have been punching one another for thousands of years, and today is no different. It’s in our blood. But if you found yourself in the midst of a fight, with no time to think and nowhere to turn, what would be the best way of defending yourself?

Punching Above Your Weight tells the story of how many people across the globe tried to answer this apparently simple question. From Kung Fu and Karate to Wrestling and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, the book explores the role of martial arts in society whilst investigating how they’ve merged, changed, and evolved over past millennia.

Is it best to mimic a dragon when someone pulls out a knife?
How do you learn to punch at six times your bodyweight?
Why is it that fighting and philosophy go hand in hand?

This is the untold story of the martial arts.
