Hi all! I am very interested in starting training in escrima. at the mo i live in quite an isolated area and haven't really got the chance to go to a club that teaches it. could you guys recommend any good training vids or books that i should get? additionally, what type of escrima is best. i had a look @ the dogbrothers vids and their tek looked pretty direct, simple & to the point. this really appeals to me. however, as there are so many styles out there, i just wanted to know the opinion of ppl who had tried various phillipino styles.

also if anyone knows any good books on yawara/kubotan techniques, i would be grateful for your suggestions.
