Complete Sinawali is the definitive guide to the intricate and highly-refined Filipino martial art of double-weapon fighting.
The warriors of the Philippines have long been respected as fierce, courageous, and effective fighters, and the martial art of Sinawali has developed a couple of-weapon fighting to an exceptionally high degree of class. Preserved in Filipino dance in addition to martial form, Sinawali employs sinuous, polyrhythmic movements, creating an almost impenetrable shield against attack.
In Complete Sinawali, Filipino martial artist Reynaldo Galang details the idea at the back of the forms and presents an orderly progression of drills designed to show ambidexterity, quick and exact footwork, and special hand techniques which are the basis of this exceedingly powerful martial art.
