Jeet Kune Do: Its Concepts and Philosophies, by Paul Vunak
Anatomy of a Streetfight, by Paul Vunak
Krav Maga: How to Defend Yourself Against Armed Assults
Russian Style of Hand to Hand Combat: by INc Aarmacs.
Mark Wiley's , "Filipino Martial Arts" First Edition. (this is the one on Caballes Serrada Escrima that was later updated and published under a new name).
Mind & Body Mastery I can't remember the author right now. When I get home I will post it.
How is the Vunak book, arnisador? I've heard good things about it.
Still working my way through it. It's certainly much better than his Jeet Kune Do: Its Concepts and Philosophies, which was a disappointment.
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Basics, Gene "Aranha" Simco.
Just finished rereading "Kodo: Ancient Ways", by Rev. Kensho Furuya, and just began "The Elements of Taoism", by Martin Palmer. The last one is not a martial arts book per se, but I am definitely finding all kinds of parallels.
I'm currently reading the "Martial Arts Book of Five Rings" and also "Hagakure: The Book of the Samurai." I've just started both but so far it's interesting.
"A Study of Taijiquan" by Sun Lu Tang (trans. by Tim Cartmell)
SPADA: An Anthology of Swordsmanship
I've read some of that--there's some good stuff in there. See:
The Martial Way and it's Virtues by F.J.Chu
Great book so far. I finished about 1/2 today after buying it. I didn't know it when I picked it up, but he goes into a detailed history of Kenpo as well.
Just finished The Russian System Guidebook by Vladimir Vasiliev.
The Throws & Take-downs of Sombo Russian Wrestling, by Geoff Thompson
The Path To Excellence
by Skip Hancock
Living the Martial Way by Forrest E. Morgan
The Unfettered Mind by Takuan Soho
Bruce Lee Library Vol. I: Words of the Dragon: Interviews, 1958-1973, by John Little
On the Warrior's Path: philosophy, fighting, and martial arts mythology - By Daniele Bolelli
I have read "The Art of War" Before.
Yet I have borrowed a book called "Sunzi Speaks"
An Illustrated version of The Art of War.
Adapted and Illustrated by Tsai Chih Chung
Translated by Brian Bruya
I have enjoyed how quick of a read it is. There are a few differeneces in the Translation, yet I would expect this. Translating Ancient Chinese into Modern English, might require a interesting perspective.
