Parting the Clouds the Science of Martial Arts
Welcome to the official website for “Parting the Clouds: The Science of Martial Arts” by author and martial artist Grenville Harrop.
Parting the Clouds is not a typical martial arts book. Rather than only concentrating on showing you how a punch or kick should be performed it also shows why it should be done a certain way – to gain the speed and mass (or weight) needed to deliver maximum force.
It’s a book that takes an in depth look at the science and physics of martial arts. Kicks and punches and other martial arts techniques are critically analyzed and scientifically explained like never before; showing why the body is trained to be used in a particular way for maximum effect.
Parting the Clouds is considered a must have for any serious martial arts enthusiast, practitioner and instructor.
