Author: David E. Gould
Publisher: Tambuli Media
Cover Price: $29.95
Because of my association with Tambuli Media I've had the opportunity to scratch a martial arts itch I've had for a while. The martial arts of the Philippines was something that I new very little about. Over the last couple of months I've been able to read several very good books about the subject from the perspective of different schools/systems. In most of the books, the beginning history and stories are what fascinated me the most. The techniques, while illustrative and well done, weren't as useful to me any my martial arts growth (...yet). This book then was a different take. It focuses on the life and times of one particular master of Filipino Martial Arts (FMA) Punong Guro Edgar G. Sulite and how he came to develop and train others in his creation, Lameco Eskrima.
