Is there such a thing as a Polish martial art? I recently read an article on the Internet quoting someone from the Martial Art World. She claimed that there was such a thing and she could prove it. So who’s she quoting from? The Martial Art world, of course!
Now then, I am not sure if she actually said that there was such a thing, but she did say it, and she did say it several times. In fact, she said, “It’s actually more correct to call [her] a martial arts geek than a geek.” Okay, I’d like to step out of that line of thinking here. Let’s look at what she said then.
First of all she said, “I spent three years studying Japanese Karate under the tutelage of an extremely well-known professor. The professor had a very large library filled with all different types of martial arts material. He held all these different martial arts books in his office.” Now I’m not familiar with his work, but this does sound a bit more scientific than what I had previously thought. And she went on to say that her grandfather was a martial arts expert and that he “was not only a black belt [in martial arts] but a very accomplished fighter.” Okay, I get it now; martial arts is a very broad subject matter.
So let’s take a closer look at what she wrote in her article. She claims that there is such a thing as Polish kickboxing and that she trained in it for some time. She also claims that her grandfather knew martial arts as a martial art and that he was the one that taught her how to do it. Now I know that this is quite interesting and if it is true, it is quite impressive that someone so advanced in age was able to teach her as a young woman.
Now then, I have to admit that I was skeptical about this book before I read it. In fact I almost cancelled my subscription to the martial arts magazine in my hometown when I found out that this book existed. But once I got the book and started reading it, I realized that while it may be quite impressive, it definitely has much more to offer than that. In fact, she goes so far as to say that learning a martial art like Polish kickboxing is like getting your fill of martial arts fun for one day. She even includes a couple pages on how to get pregnant in that book.
This is a really cool book and I think anyone who is interested in learning a new type of martial art or wants to learn how to protect themselves or their family from some sort of attack, should really consider purchasing this book. The reason I think this is so great is because it comes from a woman who knows what she is talking about and who has actually experienced the training herself. If you are like me and are a little bit hesitant about participating in a martial arts class, I recommend that you look into this book. You will not regret it.
