Summary Sport Science and Studies in Asia encourages readers to be reflective practitioners, as students or researchers, or thinkers of sports, to be independent seekers of future sport knowledge, and yet mindful and grounded in a full knowledge and awareness of the social, cultural and country-specific nuances of sports. It invites discussions and debates on a diversity of topics covered, and is suitable text for undergraduate and graduate study of sports in Asia. This publication hopes to "light the fuse" that will fuel enthusiasm of sports-associated outcomes as well as heighten sport interest among the more discerning consumers of sport, result in more extensive research and development in sports, generate greater spin-offs in sport innovation in terms of new training approaches and sport products, and a greater appreciation that sports and human kind are inseparable.
