Editorial Reviews:

For nearly half a century, the work of Placido Yambao has intrigued Filipino Martial Arts (FMA) aficionados all over the world. Yambao's manuscript, "Mga Karunungan sa Larong Arnis", was the first widely released documentation of a popular, and at the same time, esoteric art. Written in archaic Tagalog, Placido Yambao's book remained an obscure resource understood nad appreciated by only a select few. Now, with over 500 photos and exclusive supplementary materials, the enigma surrounding Yambao's art is unraveled as FMA master Rey Galang unveils the secrets of Placido Yambao's legacy.

Summary: excellent book
Comment: This is another excellent book by Rey Galang. I also received it in two business days. This is a must for any afficianado of the FMA (filipino martial arts). Just like his other books, Mr. Galang does a great job writing about and showing the techniques. This book is mainly about espada y daga, however, it also touches upon sinawali. I highly recommend this book (along with his others-Masters of the Blade, Warrior Arts of the Phillipines, and Complete Sinawali)to anyone wanting to learn more about eskrima, arnis, kali. One can use this book as a reference or actually use and practice the techniques shown.

Summary: Very good Book
Comment: This book is a surprise; it is all double blade work. Lots of information. On the down side, sorry but the Tagalog names are distracting. The pictures are too small; it's hard to pick up at times what each blade is doing. BUT......big but..... there is more good stuff packed in this book that in a good 90% of other books on the subject. Get it and get really good reading glasses : )

Summary: Hands down....The Best Arnis book I own
Comment: I really didn't understand what I was buying when i ordered this book....but I'm so glad I did. This is the first written record of Arnis in the philippines, that can only be found in the Philippine national archives; originally in archaeic Tagalog that modern Filipinos can't understand. Rey Galang just brought all this wonderful mystery to the modern world. Believe there are no sticks here..this is all blade, all the time! Now I can really see what the old folks were talking about! The best part is the Classic Espada y Daga...not stick and knife. Sword and Dagger! Been looking arond for a real good book on Espada y daga this is it! Plus the extra Sinawali techniques...thank you Rey Galang I will be waiting for your next book...please don't stop writing.
