It has long been a custom here at the Mountain academy of Martial Arts for a student testing for their Black Belt to provide us with a thesis or paper on any subject concerning Martial Arts.
We have always wanted to make these papers public and thanks to Mrs. Barrow our webmaster, we now can.
It has been a pleasure to read these for the first time, again. It is truly a wonderful collection of ideas, thoughts, instruction, verse, fiction and history.
The following papers are published with the consent of the authors either verbally, written or implied. Take some time, read and enjoy!
Yours in Martial Arts,
Grand Master John W. Rankin
