Martial Arts Behind the Berlin Wall

By Stephen V. Hoyt, Ph.D.

Martial Arts Behind the Berlin Wall

This work traces the Asian martial arts movement in the former German Democratic Republic. The movement was essentially disorganized and is only traceable through interviews and some sketchy records kept in Berlin. The Communist prohibited “non-judo” Asian martial arts from being practiced, so small groups practiced in secret.
