The ‘Risk Society’ and Martial Arts Training in New Zealand

By Diana Looser, Ph.D.




The ‘Risk Society’ and Martial Arts Training in New Zealand

This article explores relationships between sociological theories of the “risk society” and martial arts training in New Zealand. Martial art studies provide a solution for anxieties regarding: 1) personal safety; 2) personal health and fitness; 3) lack of social solidarity; and 4) lack of meaning and purpose in life.
