Martial Arts have been a cornerstone of civilizations, culture and society for thousands of years. Not only do they provide skills and means of self-defense, but their deeper practices concern the development and self-cultivation of the individual practitioner.

The martial arts of China, Japan, Okinawa, the Philippines and other Asian countries have developed and been passed down through direct transmission, from master to disciple. These traditional practices were mind-body disciplines that forget the spirit, tempered the mind, developed the body and crafted the character of the practitioner.

TAMBULI MEDIA is proud to be a leader in the preservation and promotion of traditional martial arts and the self-cultivation they engender, through its books, videos, articles, and distance learning courses. Please browse our titles, read our blog, watch our videos, and share your favorite pages on social media.
