Book Featuring Early Women Pioneers in Martial Arts Released on Kindle by Bold Visions LLC


Women in the Martial Arts is now available on Kindle. This book of essays, originally published in 1992, contains writings by 23 women, who averaged 15 years of experience in 12 different martial arts at the time of writing. This book was the first to collect the writings of women who had this depth and breadth of experience in the martial arts.

Seattle, WA, June 29, 2013 --(PR.com)-- Although women training in the martial arts is common today, the 1970s and 1980s were a time when women often struggled to be accepted as serious martial arts students. The book Women in the Martial Arts, originally published in 1992 and now available on Kindle, provides a view into this time.

Women in the Martial Arts is an anthology of essays by 23 women, who averaged 15 years of experience in 12 different martial arts at the time of writing. This book was the first to collect the writings of women who had this depth and breadth of experience in the martial arts. Essay topics range from oppression and empowerment to teaching martial arts to self-defense. A recurring theme is that the martial arts are a mirror for life, a way to see oneself.

By releasing the book on Kindle, editor Carol Wiley wants to provide a record of the early years of women becoming extensively involved in martial arts training.

According to Wiley, "I know that being a woman in the martial arts is far more common now than it was when I started training in 1979, and far more women have 20+ years of training under their belts than did in 1992 when the original version of this book was published. Women and the martial arts are in a different place now. My fervent hope is that women continue to find the strength inherent in martial arts training and bring that strength to their daily lives."

Women in the Martial Arts is available on Kindle at http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00DD24WUG.
