Asian Martial Arts - About

QUALITY Martial Arts Material for over 25 years! 


First recognized world-wide for publishing the quarterly Journal of Asian Martial Arts, Via Media Publishing built a reputation for works based on high academic standards and practical experience in the martial traditions. Founded in 1992, the journal was also published in Greek (Athens) and in Spain (University of Leon). Although it ceased being published in 2012, the nearly 500 individual articles in our archive continue to be sought after as authoritative references by serious scholars and practitioners. 


Since 2012, Via Media has focused on producing anthologies from journal materials to conveniently provide rich collections of writings on specific martial topics. Over 30 anthologies published to date are on this website, along with other books we’ve published. 


We hope the articles, anthologies, and books by Via Media will benefit your academic perspective of the Asian martial traditions, as well as assist and inspire your practice for self-defense and health.
