GMA believes that differentiating between martial arts practitioners and martial arts
students is not a question of semantics. Either one is legitimate, depending on personal
motivations. Those individuals who practice the martial arts for solely recreational and
social reasons can enjoy being "practitioners." But if someone wants to truly make a
commitment to gain a deeper understanding and excel in the martial arts, then that person
becomes a "student," which implies he/she should do just that - STUDY.
The GMA reference guide is intended for both practitioner and student -for enjoyment or for
more serious examination. References are selected in part for their consistency with GMA
curriculum, to provide our students and practitioners a more cohesive experience, but we hope
that anyone and everyone can benefit from these quality resources.
Much to our dismay, other earthly demands prevent us from investigating every resource out
there. Thus, our reviews are not only limited to those we have examined, but to those we
have found to be the best and most essential. That is not to say there are not other quality
works out there, but this is a safe place to start. Of course, opinions vary, we trust you
will accept these reviews as written in the good spirit we intend.
