Chinese-English Dictionary for China's Martial Arts


2012 PDF edition of Andrea Falk's A Comprehensive Chinese to English Dictionary of China's Martial Arts. 200 densely packed 8.5x11 inch pages. Includes simplified and traditional characters, and pinyin with tones. 

Countless words and phrases used by the internal and external martial arts of China to describe training, techniques, theory, forms, sparring, methods, TCM terms, anatomical terms, wrestling and qinna – the list is endless. Most of these terms cannot be found in a regular dictionary – and if the characters are there, they have a different meaning from that used in the martial arts.

This is way, way more comprehesive than the free online dictionary and the free dictionary downloads. If you want a good dictionary, get this one.
