This website offers a unique way to engage learners in basic physics concepts through Kung Fu martial arts. Concepts that play a role in martial arts include force, impulse, momentum, and conservation of energy. The resource blends video with sequenced conceptual support and scaffolded help with calculations. Voice narration makes the resource accessible to students with disabilities.
Editor's Note: The Web serves up a multitude of materials that claim to demonstrate the physics of various sports, but are inaccurate. However, this tutorial (sponsored by the UK's Institute of Physics) exemplifies an excellent resource that blends solid science with entertaining real-world activities.
