Editorial Reviews:

Sinawali -- meaning "woven" -- is an intricate and devastating Filipino fighting system with ancient roots, perfectly suited to modern times, and its popularity is booming around the world. This fascinating stick and blade empty-hand defense employs a sinuous, polyrhythmic inter-weaving of leg and arm defenses and attacks, presenting a virtually impenetrable shield against potential attackers. Martial arts instructor Reynaldo S. Galang reveals the special hand techniques, the exact, quick footwork, and the working theory behind the art of Sinawali, through instructional text and clear photographs. Whether readers are interested in Sinawali for exercise, hobby, or as a means of self-defense, Complete Sinawali is their definitive guide.

Summary: best book on the subject
Comment: If there is such a thing as great "value for your money" deal in the world of MA books, than this is it! I was amazed how much information did GM Galang manage to put in such a concise and small book. It is really too bad that the hotos were not done in a little bit bigger format, or text a little bit more elaborate, but my guess is that the publisher had set some limitations regarding those issues. On the other hand, maybe that would make the book more expensive, therefore making it less of such a great deal...

Summary: it's worth picking up.
Comment: This book does a decent job of describing the movements it describes you making when picking up double sticks, however, some parts can be difficult to follow.

Summary: Sina-whaty?
Comment: I guess if you've already had some training in Kali/escrima and sinawali the book is okay, but it lacks in depth and is therefore not for the beginner. Also, there is a bit too much text on the author's school and his grandmasters and all that, but it's not too bad. This is more of an enhancer to one's training than a how-to.
