I have several questions.
1) Where can I find research in the area of the martial arts?
2) Is there any such research related to the forces applied by techniques
(e.g. kicking, punching, etc.)?
3) Is there any information available on how to measure the force of impact?
4) Is there any kinematic study of this subject matter?

I am a graduate tudentorking on my master project. The subject of my
study is the difference in forces between two different styles of Taekwon Do
roundhouse kick. There have been numerous studies on the various kicks from s
orts such as football and soccer. I have even found info on a kinematic study
of a front kick. There is not enough correlation in these studies to my area
