Publisher Information

Turtle Press (CT)

Turtle Press was founded in 1989 with the publication of our first book Teaching: The Way of the Master. At that time, there were no materials designed specifically to educate martial arts instructors on the methods and strategies of teaching. Turned down by all of the major martial arts publishers as being too radical or revealing too much information, this book spawned a revolution in the martial arts world. Prior to 1990 there was nowhere for martial arts instructors to turn for information on teaching. Today there are plentiful resources. Turtle Press is proud to have led the martial arts world in a bold new direction, improving the quality of instruction available to students worldwide. Even today, in its expanded second edition, Teaching Martial Arts is one of our top selling titles, educating a new generation of instructors. As one of the most innovative and forward thinking companies in the martial arts world, Turtle Press has achieved several other firsts that opened the door for those who followed. We were the first to release an organized sparring curriculum for students and instructors, the first to publish a book specifically on the sport, rather than the art, of taekwondo, the first to expose the traditional arts of ssireum, muye ehsip saban and kuk kung to the western world, the first to translate the classic Muye Dobo Tongji into English, the first to publish a book about weight lifting for martial artists, the first to offer our complete product line on the internet, the first to film team training sessions in Korea and release them to the world, the first to create a training diary for martial artists, and the first (and still only) company to offer free online previews of every one of our products.

Specifically interested in books with these subjects or themes: children's fiction and non-fiction (books and resources on martial arts themes - training/instructional and stories of characters in the arts)
