<DIV><B>Go beyond <I>The Art of War</I> and discover the hidden teachings of history’s lost masters of battle strategy and mind manipulation.</B><BR />  <BR /> While many are familiar with Sun Tzu’s <I>The Art of War,</I> few readers have encountered the deeper truths of strategy and mind manipulation. Until now, only the most devoted scholars—dedicated to deciphering the ancient scrolls and mastering the nuances of lost languages—have learned the dangerous wisdom of lesser-known masters.<BR />  <BR /> In <I>Lost Arts of War,</I> popular author and martial arts practitioner Dr. Haha Lung brings together an array of teachings from the dark corners of history for those who dare—perhaps unwisely—to attain a higher level of battle dominance. Fully translated and collected in one volume for the first time ever, these writings include:<BR />  <ul><li>The 12 Cuts: Yoritomo’s Art of War </li><li>The War Scroll of Spartacus</li><li>The 99 Truths: Hannibal’s Black Art of War</li><li>Musashi’s 6 Ways to be Victorious</li><li>And much more</li></ul>BE ADVISED: For academic study ONLY; publisher assumes NO responsibility for content use/misuse.</DIV>

Track & Field is mostly a sprint sport. All things being equal, speed<br />usually wins the race. The pure sprint events include the 100 meters,<br />200 meters, 400 meters, and the 4x100 and 4x400 relays. Sprint speed<br />is also a crucial component of the hurdles, horizontal jumps, pole vault,<br />and middle distances. All told, these comprise 12 Track & Field events.<br />To have winning teams, you must be able to teach and train your<br />athletes to run with speed.<br /><br />How to Train Sprinters by Coach Jay Edwards is the book that teaches coaches the process of challenging their athlete to become sprinters of the hishest order.<br /><br />Basketball coaches have been known to say, “you can’t coach height, so you better recruit it!” Similarly, coaches and athletes in all sports have surrendered to the belief that speed, like height, is a trait predetermined by genetics and something which cannot be improved much by training. The truth is that speed can be significantly improved through training and an awareness of the essential techniques common to the fastest sprinters. The development of running speed is not simply a gift of genetics. Speed is a skill, and it can be learned and developed by athletes at every level of competition.
