Self-Transformation and the Martial Arts in the American Cultural Environment

By Frederick W. Lohse, III., M.A., Ed.M.




Self-Transformation and the Martial Arts in the American Cultural Environment

By identifying, or contrasting, ourselves with shared ideas and images, we construct an identity that is both salient to ourselves and understandable to those around us. The author examines some aspects of how practitioners in the U.S.A. use the martial arts as one means of constructing their narratives of Self.
