Jamie Clubbs New Book!

Jamie Clubb’s book is soon to be released! Jamie is a good friend and I believe him to be one of the most thoughtful, insightful and erudite martial artists I’ve ever met. Phone calls between Jamie and I are never short affairs (“quick chats” typically last over an hour) as we share thoughts and bounce our various martial musings off one another. I’m really delighted that this book will offer some of Jamie’s thoughts to the wider martial world. Definitely a must have for every thinking martial artists; regardless of your background.

“The intellectual dimension in reality training, putting the brains behind the brawn” - Mo Teague

“Truly a critical thinker [who] accepts nothing at face value. He believes in research, the scientific approach, and unbiased analysis. Jamie has trained with some of the world’s leading personal combat specialists, and he has received remarkable accolades from men who are not easily impressed. Not content with merely teaching a set of physical techniques, Jamie seems to have a unique mission… he wants his students to experience the joy of discovery on their own. He presents them with skill sets not only to learn to fight and defend themselves but also how to research their own approach and learn to think. Jamie is truly a modern-day Renaissance man”. - Ron Goin, founder of P.U.M.A. (Practical Urban Martial Arts)

"These articles ask important questions about tradition, ethics, and several other martial concepts. He regularly challenges the reader with simple reason and logic to break through misconceptions and limiting beliefs in the area of self-protection. Jamie shows himself to be very knowledgeable in a wide array fields. These fields include martial arts history, zoology, evolutionary psychology, and sport specific training - to name a few." – T.J. Kennedy, founder of Canada's Hybrid Fighting Method.

“The writer is erudite and extremely well read and practised, the writing is literary and compelling and the prose is articulate and challenging for all the right reasons”. - Geoff Thompson

“One of the most insightful martial artists it’s ever been my pleasure to meet. His direct and practical approach cur right to the heart of functional self-protection”. – Iain Abernethy

Reviews of Jamie Clubb’s  New Book Mordred’s Victory and Other Martial Mutterings

"The book Mordred’s Victory and Other Martial Art Mutterings is brilliantly written by Jamie Clubb, a Mixed Martial Art (MMA) expert. Author teaches self-defense to his students at his own martial arts school, CCMA (Clubb Chimera Martial Arts) and has written this piece of non-fiction to throw light on its importance. The book is in four parts that takes a reader from the history of the Martial Arts to the professional training one must take in order to be good at Martial Arts in a beautiful and interesting manner. It’s a book with so many good references, quotes and examples that any reader who is looking for a good piece of intellect would surely admire it."Read the full review at the OnlineBookClub

"Masterful Insights from a Wandering Warrior. Jamie Clubb is a master of his art. Unfortunately he doesn't hold the title master because his journey has been more classical than traditional. Throughout his training he has always tried to find the most practical, easiest to learn and effective way of fighting. Fortunately, he is also a relented presenter and writer. This means that we are able to benefit from his thoughts on the martial arts no matter where we are in the world, without having to travel to some remote part of the globe and climb a perilous mountain. Insightful, engaging, entertaining and fun to read, this collection of articles is a valuable addition to any martial arts library"Matthew Sylvester, Martial artist and author

"I'm really pleased to see Jamie's very impactive range of articles brought together in one book, Mordred's Victory. For many years we have always been pleased that we could publish some of these intriguing articles on the British Combat Association website as Jamie has been one of our leading Instructors and exponents of modern combatives and martial arts within the Association. Personally, I have a great enthusiasm for Instructors who are able to produce thought provoking and well written articles on the key issues and concepts of the combat world and articulate the reality behind what many people often over-simplify when it comes to translating traditional martial arts to conflict situations. Mordred's Victory has a wider brief, however, than just dealing with practical issues and covers a host of key issues, especially the teaching of children - an area I know Jamie is passionate about. I recommend this book to anyone with a real interest in martial arts and self protection, training, or teaching."Peter Consterdine, 9th Dan Karate, Co-Founder of the British Combat Association
