I know that GM Presas had written a few books, and that Master [SIZE=-1]Galang also has at least 1 book out, but, how many books are there? I'd love to have an FMA Reading List stickied here :)

Dan Anderson's books have been very helpful in my FMA journey.

Mark Wiley's FMA books have also been insightful.

Since we are talking about it, anybody know any good web sites I can look up FMA schools?

FMATalk (run by the same folks who run MartialTalk) and FMAForum.org both have directories of instructors. I used to administrate the FMA forum at MartialArtsPlanet.com. That might be another place to inquire (though their specific schools directory is on the blink at the moment). Lots of knowledgeable people out there.

My teacher, GM Mike Vasquez of Modified Tapado, has two books out, Modified Karate and Fundamentals of Tapado. Here follows a write-up about the books:


tapado%20book.jpg
The book "Fundamentals of Tapado, Arnis Long Stick Art of Fighting" is the first book on Tapado in the world. The author, Sensei Mike Vasquez, is licensed by its founder, Grandmaster Romeo "Nono" Mamar, to spread Tapado all throughout the world. The book, set to published early next year (2005), contains the history of Tapado, its technical uniqueness to its predecessors and the fundamental skills of the art. Please note that in the end portion of the book, the primary modifications of Tapado innovated by Sensei Mike Vasquez are discussed to increase the effectiveness and efficiency of the art.


The Modified Karate book, set to be published next year, will certainly influence positively the martial arts world through its innovative techniques such as Cross Method of Tournament Fighting (CMTF), Defense Breaking Method (Penetrating Punch and Kick) and Stopping Hands Penetration Principle (Highest technique in Modified Karate). These techniques were tested and proven by several local and international top martial artists.





I couldn't find the two books on Amazon, but they are in the National Bookstores in the Philippines, which are in every major metropolitan center of the country.
