Not very useful as a martial arts book, but good for understanding Filipino Martial Arts history and culture.

An interesting read in its diversity and breadth (it is a collection of essays from various authors), and for the ways in which it challenges many of the dubious myths that are perpetuated in Eskrima circles without detracting from the actual Filipino Martial Arts themselves.
