    Available on academic.edu if you sign up (free). It's a very good site if you need any academic papers, some are excellent reading.

    The Triviality of Martial Arts Studies [Draft 1]

    This is a first draft. The paper addresses the question of whether the emergent field of martial arts studies might be regarded as trivial. In doing so, it explores possible rationales and raisons d'être of the field in terms of a reflection on the legitimation of academic subjects, especially those closest to martial arts studies and from which martial arts studies can be seen to have emerged.

    Trivial? I have some candidates that don't even reach that level of insignificance.
