Abstract

The various senses, including the classical five (sight, sound, smell, touch and taste) of Greco-Roman thought, are key to contemporary ethnography and other evolving qualitative research traditions. The sociology and anthropology of sport have made advances to the understanding of everyday and exceptional bodily experience,
and this has extended to the field of martial arts and combat sports, as well as other bodily arts. This paper explores the novel and ever-evolving use of the method known as auto/phenomenography, which connects to approaches in autoethnography. Drawing on the pioneering work of Allen Collinson and Hockey, as well as that of
their collaborators, we first examine the nature of what auto/phenomenography entails as a unique form of automethodology through field notes, reflections, audio recordings and also photography and other visual methods. Following this introduction, we consider some of the recent studies using this first-person, longitudinal design in the martial arts and other fighting systems,
