The Art of Regulation: Martial Arts as Threats to Social Order

By H. Richard Friman, Ph.D.




The Art of Regulation: Martial Arts as Threats to Social Order

This article offers a first step toward a systematic exploration of government regulation of the martial arts. The author argues that the martial arts are more likely to face government regulation when authorities perceive them as posing challenges to the state’s monopoly over the means to create and maintain order.
