Grazia Magazine on Kickboxing
Following up my emails to John Birmingham, I've defended John Wayne Parr's decision to promote his daughter's recent fight.
I'm quoted as making the negative case: that martial arts are safer than they seem, and often involve less injuries than many 'feminine' pursuits, like ballet.
But I also made the positive case: that martial arts encourage a number of important virtues. I don't have a link, but if you want to read more:
- The Age, on the virtues of Mixed Martial Arts (here).
- The Sydney Morning Herald, on the educational importance of martial arts (here and here).
- The Australian, on the philosophical value of martial arts (here).
