Reader's Review: This book sucks!

I made the mistake in buying this book. I thought it was about Filipino Martial Arts....it's about how a supposedly avid practitioner of the FMA keeps refering to Japanese and Indonesian arts trying to lump everything and anything under FMA. It's really sad because these so called 10th degree grandmasters let these guys crap all over Filipino Martial Arts and get away with it. It's not Japanese or Indonesian..it's Filipino....The author wrote a book with nothing but his own opinion...he probably never been to the Philippines.
Sorry but Sarongs and Kerambits are not Filipino...Guys need a reality check. Stop bastardizing the art! I'm sorry I bought this book and I'm sad that this is how some Filipinos are teaching the art just to make everybody happy and to fatten their wallets!

Reader's Review: Knife fighting at it's best!

This book is an excellent resource for any martial artist, be they a beginner or veteran . Using the many detailed illustrations provided in this book, you will be able to draw not only from the vast experience of the author, Mark Edward Cody, but also Ray Dionaldo, the Founder and Grand Master of Filipino Combat Systems (FCS). Through this book you will become acquainted with the amazing techniques of some of the most well known and highly sought after knife fighting instructors in the world. I really like that not only does the book cover the core concepts of FCS, basic martial principals, and the basics of self defense, but it also goes into more detail on the origin and fighting techniques of the Kerambit and the Sarong. A very comprehensive book, a must read for anyone interested in knife fighting or martial arts.
