Martial Arts and Well-being Connecting communities and promoting health

Productbeschrijving

Martial Arts and Well-being explores how Martial Arts, such as Taijiquan, Karate and Judo, can contribute in important ways to health and well-being, as well as providing other, broader, social benefits. By using psychological theory related to ritual, perception and reality construction, the book seeks to illustrate, with empirical data, how individuals make sense of and perceive the value of Martial Arts in their lives. In addition, the book considers how the practice of Martial Arts, which are highly ritualised and culturally disciplined, can promote greater self-awareness, whilst also connecting individuals and groups. The consequences of this in terms of broader value as a social good' is discussed, alongside a discussion of how Martial Arts offer an important bridge that connects local and global communities, which, in turn, supports and promotes greater social and cultural awareness. Specifically, the role of Martial Arts in creating a shared identity and collective community of practice and the importance of this to well-being is explored. Lloyd and Fuller demonstrate that participating in Martial Arts can have a powerful influence on the construction of behaviour patterns, which have very real and direct outcomes on perceptions of health and well-being. Martial Arts and Well-being will be of great interest to a range of audiences, including researchers, academics and postgraduate students interested in sports and exercise psychology, Martial Art studies and health and well-being. It should also be of interest to sociologists, social workers and Martial Arts practitioners.
