Heros and Titles

Here are some cool links about important stuff I didn't know.  

The Real Lone Ranger is way cooler than the fictional one!

Two Guns-Cohen!  Personal Bodyguard to Sun Yet-sen?  This story is epic and yet it is completely new info to me.


I was thinking the other day about the bright future of Martial Arts Conferences that mix academic and practitioner interests so that we may have a long love affair.  Here are some Conference titles that I hacked out:

  • The Martial Body, Enlightenment and Morality.
  • The Search for Authenticity: Autonomy vs Community.
  • Self-Defense and Sovereignty- Changing Laws and Social Norms within and between Cultures.
  • Martial Arts as Expression- Symbolic and Ritual
  • Social vs. Asocial Violence and the Endocrine System (Martial Arts as Physiology)
  • Expressivity in the Martial Arts-Spontaneity, Creativity, Discipline, Innovation, and Inter-Arts Collaboration.
  • Martial Arts and Social Thought- How Institutions Think- Community, Hierarchy, and the Market.
