It has a history that goes back over a thousand years, and there is some evidence that perhaps it is even older than that. The Rules of Chess is a free book, in electronic format, that will teach young and old how to play the “Royal Game." Written by one of the great instructors of the modern era, Bruce Pandolfini, it is in fact a small excerpt from his extremely popular book Let’s Play Chess (2nd edition). After the material is presented, there is a section listing and describing the chess books published by Russell Enterprises, Inc. which are also available in electronic format. In the meantime, we hope you enjoy The Rules of Chess by Bruce Pandolfini...

The Fault Tolerant Forehand: Succeed Under Imperfect Conditions

”Most forehand inconsistency is not proximally caused by small mistakes, but rather by a swing which lacks the fault tolerance to handle them.”The Fault Tolerant Forehand explains the stroke from the ground up, starting from the premise that a forehand is only useful if it can succeed even when struck slightly imperfectly. On the tour, successful, imperfect strikes occur all the time. Players routinely slightly mistime or slightly mishit their forehands, and yet they hardly ever miss them outright. That property – success under imperfect conditions – is known as fault tolerance. A fault tolerant stroke is able to tolerate a fault, like a small mistake in preparation, timing, or execution, and still succeed. If, as you set up for the ball on the forehand, your mind feels nervous and shaky, like the smallest mistake will send the ball flying into the back fence or spiraling down into the bottom of the net, that is because you are performing the forehand mechanically wrong.Luckily, this problem is completely fixable. Fault tolerance on the forehand is a fully attainable goal for all ALL players. This book is your road map for achieving it.

How to win the Premier League: On a Shoestring

A few wealthy clubs dominate the English Premier League and almost lockout every other club from the top slots. But what if your mid-to-low level club was to power it’s way to the top, without the help of untold riches. What if less-wealthy clubs made a habit of overcoming their disadvantages and regularly winning the league. You might think this is almost impossible. And you might be right unless you and many others read this book. This book outlines several strategies which could help propel your club to the top. Also rule changes which would make it more difficult to ‘buy’ the league, therefore making it fairer and tilting it back towards the majority. We might then have frequent ‘Leicester City’ type of events and a completely unpredictable top five every year. The book is a short read; you could finish it in a couple of hours. To reduce the book buyer feeling short-changed, I have included the first chapter of my forthcoming (in late 2018) book called “Ministry of AfterDeath” as bonus material. - Ash Nehmet

With God on their Side: Sport in the Service of Religion

'Sport' and 'religion' are cultural institutions with a global reach. Each is characterised by ritualised performance and by the ecstatic devotion of its followers, whether in the sports arena or the cathedral of worship. This fascinating collection is the first to examine, in detail, the relationship between these two cultural institutions from an international, religiously pluralistic perspective. It illuminates the role of sport and religion in the social formation of collective groups, and explores how sport might operate in the service of a religious community.The book offers a series of cutting-edge contemporary historical case-studies, wide-ranging in their social and religious contexts. It presents important new work on the following fascinating topics:* sport and Catholicism in Northern Ireland* Shinto and sumo in Japan* women, sport and the American Jewish identity* religion, race and rugby in South Africa* sport and Islam in France and North Africa* sport and Christian fundamentalism in the US* Muhammad Ali and the Nation of Islam.With God on their Side is vital reading for all students of the history, sociology and culture of sport.

Mixed Martial Arts The Basics of Jujitsu & MMA

Jujitsu is a name used for Japanese martial arts techniques.  The meaning of this word is the “art of softness” or “way of yielding”.  Jujitsu came from Japan as a way of defeat of an opponent without using any weapons.  Since hitting the opponent didn’t do much justice, they would be attacked with pins and throws.  This worked against the attacker’s energy.There are different ways that people do jujitsu.  Some of the techniques used include, holds, throwing, trapping, biting, gouging, striking and kicking.  At one time, there were self-defense schools that taught their students how to use weapons, but that is no longer the case. Jujitsu is practiced all over the world, including being used in sport form.  It has been used in the Olympic Games competitions.       Other methods of combat with jujitsu include:Striking (kicking and punching)Throwing (body throws)Restraining (pinning, wrestling)Defense moves (evading, blocking, escaping)Sport jujitsu has many forms.  One of the most popular is judo, which has been implemented into the Olympic Games.  Mixed-style competitions are the ones that are most seen at these Games.  With these competitions, there are throws, strikes and holds in order for the competitors to get points. Kata competitions, which is where competitors use techniques of the same style and get graded for how well they perform.  You will also find freestyle games where the competitors go after each other.  The defenders are graded on how well they perform.With the jujitsu system, there is more attention paid to pinning, throwing, choking and strangling techniques.  This is different than other systems of martial arts like karate.  Even though jujitsu is originally a Japanese system, there are some jujitsu schools that use some Chinese moves.   The danger of jujitsu is that with training, some of the moves can be fatal.  Students that have jujitsu classes are usually taught in an environment that is not competitive.  Because of that, there is not a lot of risk. With jujitsu, you will find five main sectors, otherwise known as the arts of training.  The five sectors are:

Boxing, Masculinity and Identity: The 'I' of the Tiger

Boxing is infused with ideas about masculinity, power, race and social class, and as such is an ideal lens through which social scientists can examine key modern themes.

Essential reading for anyone interested in the sociology of sport and cultural representations of gender, Boxing, Masculinity and Identity brings together ethnographic research with material from film, literature and journalism. Through this combination of theoretical insight and cultural awareness, Woodward explores the social constructs around boxing and our experience and understanding of central issues including:masculinitymind, body and the construction of identity spectacle and performance: tensions between the public and private person boxing on film: the role of cultural representations in building identities methodologies: issues of authenticity and ‘truth’ in social science.

Swords in the Time of Corona

When this coronavirus, SARS-CoV-19, emerged at the beginning of 2020, I didn’t worry too much about it, because I recognised it as being outside my area of control. There was nothing for me to do, so I just ignored it. Then bit by bit things started to change—the twin threats of death by plague and economic ruin came front and center into our collective awareness.As lockdown progressed it was soon obvious that many of my students were struggling. Things they depended on for their physical, mental, and economic health were simply gone. I realised that I had to focus on my core mission, which is to help my students. Normally, that means help them with their sword problems, but the whole point of practising swordsmanship is to improve your quality of life. And not all the help they needed was directly sword related.Then I thought of the things that were working for me: the mental postures learned from swordsmanship training, that were easing my way through lockdown with minimal stress. I started blogging these ideas as they came up, between March and June 2020, and before long was getting requests from readers to create a book of them. So here it is.Guy’s Lockdown Survival Guide, or, Swords in the Time of Corona. Some of the advice here is lockdown-specific, but most of it is applicable to all sorts of crises. I hope you find it useful.

Luis Suarez: The Psychology Behind the Biting

In this new and exciting work, Tom Ackroyd takes a look inside the complex mind of footballer, Luis Suarez in order to uncover some startling facts about the now infamous World Cup bite. Ackroyd combines psychological insight with detailed analysis in order to put forward a new and intriguing account of the incident that shocked the football world. Ackroyd opposes those who are quick to see Suarez’s actions as the result of uncontrollable violent aggressive impulses, and instead presents a far more sympathetic view of the complex mental life of this controversial striker.In fact, Ackroyd goes as far as saying that Suarez’s biting, seen at the World Cup (and on two previous occasions), was in fact a form of ‘acting’ that was planned well in advance. The overall picture that Ackroyd paints of Luis Suarez is of a highly charged, competitive athlete striving to utilise his mental and physical capabilities to their maximum potential. Ackroyd even suggests that there is a rational side to Suarez’s biting that many would feel too controversial to consider plausible. A captivating insight into one of the most brilliant and tempestuous players, this book is a must read for all those who are interested in what makes Luis Suarez's mind tick.
