Tip of the hat to Cook Ding for this find!
Martial Arts Studies is a new academic journal focusing on the study of martial arts. From the journal’s “About Us” section:
Martial Arts Studies is a peer reviewed online open access academic journal that publishes the highest quality academic work on any aspect of martial arts studies. Its aim is to foster the most informed cross-disciplinary discourse on martial arts via the cross-fertilization of perspectives. As such, it encourages interdisciplinarity. The journal publishes both themed and open issues. All contents are subject to peer and editor review.
Looks like we can expect the first issue this fall. Being an egghead I’ve always kept my martial arts hobby separate from my academic life.
I may have to ponder contributing…
