The Lethal Art Of Filipino Knife Fighting
by Sid Campbell, Gary Cagaanan, and Sonny Umpad
Three experts of FMA Contributed to authoring this book, it covers how to conceal, draw, flip and grip the balisong as well as the usage of the live or open hand for checking, monitoring, passing and parrying.
the photos are nicely laid out and informative. GM Sonny Umpad is a legend in FMA circles for his Visayan Corto-Kadena eskrima method and his utter mastery of blade methods & his deceptive footwork. it was nice to read such a well laid out book with alot of history and information on the tactics of this uniquely filipino weapon. the knife cutting drills and patterns of attack were very informative and gives great insight into visayan Corto-Kadena eskrima methods.
a worthy addition to ones FMA library.
