Summary
CRUSHES MYTHS. UTTERLY BRILLIANT! An in-depth look into the physics behind martial arts Whether you are an experienced martial artist or a curious enthusiast, this book gives you an "unfair advantage" by unraveling the complex science of effective fighting techniques and examining the core principles that make them work. Did you know? - Momentum is for knocking people over - Energy is for breaking bones and causing pain - A haymaker travels 3.14159 times farther than a jab - You are only an "object" when you are rigid Fight Like a Physicist blends inquiry, skepticism, and irreverent humor-all while punching holes in myth and mysticism. Highlights include - Making physics your "unfair advantage," in the ring and on the street - Examining center of mass, pi, levers, wedges, angular momentum, and linear momentum for martial artists - Reducing traumatic brain injury in contact sports - Exposing the illusion of safety provided by gloves and helmets - Overturning conventional wisdom on compliance during an assault - Busting up Hollywood action cliches Fight Like a Physicist reads like a manifesto on the rational practice of martial arts. It's intelligent, fun, and dangerous-and nothing short of iconoclastic
