Espada Y Daga With Stick...With Knife: The Essentials
by the Gringo! W. Hock Hochheim
"One topic in my hobbies is Filipino Martial Arts and one aspect of this hobby is obscure Espada Y Daga. When looking at FMA material, I am only interested in the essential aspects of it, from many FMA systems and styles. I've never been happy or satisfied with just one. Thus the pursuit of the raw essentials. What are the universal essentials of Espada y Daga, with stick, with knife, to and from all FMA systems? Since training in many systems in FMA since 1986, I believe I have collected an essential, combatives package on this subject. Unlocked it, organized it and even de-mystified it as much as I can.” - Hock See and learn:

- "I don't give out many recommendations.. So when I do you know it's in stone! Hock is one of the best teachers in the business. I tend to have this problem with giving college level material a little quick. It is something that I am working on. But Hock has this uncanny gift to bring you through the grades, elementary, middle, high school and then college and he does it in a way that you retain the information at a high analytical level. I for sure recommend his material. And especially for the person who may not want to dive head first into FMA but still wants the essence of FMA.. You will not find a better guide..." - Guro Billy Brown, Tampa, Florida

. Due to shrinking demand of DVDs, we have shrunk our DVD sales and equipment, but some people still ask for DVDs only. So we have to outsource the manufacturing, thus the cost. DVDs will go away completely soon.
