Tuttle Martial Arts has just published a book by Reynaldo S. Galang, the 'Complete Sinawali', a text on Filipino Double-weapon fighing.

Somewhat pricey for its size ($16.95), it provides a very good reference into Filipion Double-weapon drills.

I have a number of arts on the Filipino Stick Arts and cannot think of one which goes into as much detail on double-stick fighting.

Tuttle's series Complete "Shotokan, Aikido, and other titles" are very good presentations on each topic.

BTW, a real hint here, if you want a personal insight to Okinawan Karate, you must purchase the text on 'Complete Aikido'.

Hi Victor,

Do you believe that the double stick drills can be easily converted into empty hand drills? Would the book be a good buy from this perspective?

Curious in Kanazawa,

Joe Swift
