Martial Arts

The titles here were selected, not because they teach a particular art, but because the principles demonstrated can be applied to different systems. Often, in the commercialization of a system, important components are lost. By looking at different arts, one often can find concepts that were once part of your own system, but are now missing. For example, the Fighting Footwork of Silat/Kuntao series by Bob Orlando can be used to find lost trapping footwork within your own style. (Did you even know your style attacked with footwork other than kicks?) These titles provide principles and concepts that will help you in the understanding and application of your art.

On this page we offer a short description of the items. By clicking on the picture or title, you can get a more in-depth information on the product. The Order Now link will take you directly to check out.
