We send congratulations to Iveta Karpathyova, a second-year student in the Interdisciplinary Master’s in Art, Media and Design (IAMD) program, who won the Martial Arts Studies Film Competition hosted by the Martial Arts Studies conference in Cardiff University (UK), held from July 19-21, 2016. Her film, which she developed in her first year of study at OCAD U, was screened alongside fellow winner Philip Loy as part of the conference.

Ms. Karpathyova offered insights into her experience at the conference:
“I met scholars and practitioners of various types of martial arts over the course of three days. The most valuable experience was forming new relationships, initiating collaborations and discussing my research on embodiment with authors and experts in this flourishing field. I received a lot of insight into current topics of research within the field of martial arts including pedagogy, gender, identity, film aesthetics, historical records, culture and tradition, health and well-being, spiritual and holistic theory.
Besides gaining insight into current academic discourse on kinetic intelligence, embodied research and movement studies, I was invited to submit my animations to the Martial Arts film festival and interviewed for Dojo TV on my experiences as a practitioner and researcher within the field.”

Organizers described the award as developed “in response to the conference’s interest in moving martial arts studies work into the realms of audiovisual media. In order to stimulate new forms of research, dissemination and communication in the field of martial arts studies, this year we invited students to submit short five minute films on any aspect of martial arts. Here’s what we said: You may want to document an obscure martial arts style for posterity, or give insight into a system, culture or field of practice. You may want to deal with theoretical or practical issues in martial arts studies. You may want to showcase your own research. Your work will be helping to advance the visibility and insights of martial arts.”

The second annual international Martial Arts Studies Conference’s theme was centered on discourses that engage with the relations between two dimensions that are often regarded as opposed, or worlds apart: namely, the relations between media representation and embodied practice.
