Abstract in another language

For this JOMAR | Interview we decided to combine Iain’s and Jesse’s talks from 2013 and 2018 in order to show both development and consistency in their perspectives on Karate. But this is not the only reason for this JOMAR | Interview’s focus. What is addressed between the lines is the fascinating journey an ancient Asian martial art took from the Far East across America to Europe and back again over the last hundred years — and this journey is still going on. What we can study here is kind of a transcultural flow in which the flowing subject is de- and reconstructed by millions of people practicing, teaching, and researching on it.
