English | ISBN: 9781004088461 | 2022 | 8 hours and 4 minutes | MP3 | M4B | 221 MB
Before 1871, Germany was not a nation but an idea. Its founder, Otto von Bismarck, had a formidable task at hand. How would he bring thirty-nine individual states under the yoke of a single Kaiser, convincing proud Prussians, Bavarians and Rhinelanders to become Germans? Once united, could the young European nation wield enough power to rival the empires of Britain and France – all without destroying itself in the process? In a unique study of five decades that changed the course of modern history, Katja Hoyer tells the story of the German Empire from its violent beginnings to its calamitous defeat in the First World War. It is a dramatic tale of national self-discovery, social upheaval and realpolitik that ended, as it started, in blood and iron.

Make no mistake, when a real fight happens you will get hit. If you haven’t conditioned your body to give and take punishment, you will be at a huge disadvantage. All the fighting skills in the world are useless if you can’t survive getting hit by your opponent. Warriors of the past knew this, so they used Iron Body conditioning methods to prepare themselves for combat. Many of these methods have been passed down through the martial arts for generations but they are not often used by modern practitioners. In Iron Body Conditioning Methods for the Modern Martial Artist, the author shares simple but highly effective exercises that will toughen the body to give and take punishment. Topics covered include; proper posture to protect yourself from strikes while standing and on the ground, recovering from the ground, conditioning for falling on hard surfaces, how to breathe when being hit, conditioning the natural weapons of the body, a simple Iron Palm training routine, preparing to take a punch, mental conditioning and more. There are no magic tricks or stunts, just proven conditioning methods that will turn your body into iron!
