The journal started in 1979 as an attempt to add to the scholarly studies of martial arts with contributions from yogis, Sartre-mopers, Art Bell listeners and chiropodists.
Although the journal promised semi-annual publication on its subscription card, it appeared to have trouble finding worthwhile contributions. This letter from the JISMA editor was inside the edition I found. Was the mysterious Mr. Kim able to save JISMA? Maybe some of my readers battling it out in my Lin Kong Jing post can help me out.
