Guro Gatdula has written several books that we are editing to offer for purchase very soon. Please check back with us, and we will have descriptions and ordering information.

Now Here… A NEW BOOKS!!!

TECHNIQUE AND FIGHTING STRATEGY: This book took almost 7 years to write. A collection of essays on fighting technique and strategy for the FMA practitioner. This will be a part I, as part II is being worked on at this time. We had too much to fit it all into one book!

PDF copys only, sorry no paperback at this time. Introductory price:  $15! Don’t procrastinate!

  1. 8 Tips to Boosting Your School’s Income:  This book is 49 pages long, and details the steps you can follow to boosting your school’s income. There are plenty of generic sources out there to help teach how to run a business effectively, but few address the needs of the small, traditional martial arts school. Guro has been running his schools commercially since 1993 and has learned a lot of practical techniques to prospering in the traditional martial arts industry. It is a perfect complement to his first book, Make a Living with Your Backyard/Garage/Community Center Dojo. Sold as a PDF for $7…
  2. Filipino Fighting Secrets Live:  Philosophy of the Martial Arts: The first in the series entitled “Filipino Fighting Secrets Live on Hardcopy”. This is a collection of articles from the blog (many have been removed, some were written specifically for this edition) dealing with the philosophy of the martial arts. A must-have for any serious martial artist, whether student, teacher, or master! “Philosophy” is 145 pages long, and worth ten times what we’re asking! If you enjoy the blog, then carry a copy with you everywhere you go, or download it to your laptop and read it whenever you wish. Remember, many of these articles do not appear on the blog and you don’t want to miss anything! PDF versions are $19


Stay tuned for more, because we have three new books in the works!


Filipino Fighting Secrets Live:  Techniques and Fighting Strategy

If you truly want to enhance your empty handed fighting, this is your only opportunity to find it in book format.

  1. I’m really looking forward to the release of the full length book, and I’d like to buy the 22 page book too… except that I travel permanently, and I need to fit everything I own into a suitcase, so books on paper are not a good match.

    Would you consider one of the following for both books (in descending order of preference):

    (i) provide a downloadable e-book for purchase
    (ii) email me the electronic version as a one off if I pay up front
    (iii) scan the pages of the paper version and email them to me after payment

    If you’d like to sell a downloadable version of the book, and the only thing holding you back is the technology, I’d be delighted to do the techy parts for you.

    Great blog, by the way. I’ve only been following for a couple of weeks, but I’m working through all the (excellent) older posts gradually too.

    Many thanks!

    1. thank you very much, i saw your blog too, and its a nice one.

      i am getting some help with the book, which we will do an email book too, im going to have to get on my guys to hurry up and get that part together. we going to put and announcement when its done. thank you for the offer!

      we have a paypay too, but its not on this blog yet.

  2. My name is Rodrigo Sanhueza and I have been practicing fma a couple of years in Chile. We don’t have a great variation in fma schools here nor do we have many visitors from around the world conducting seminars. Our tribe is small but faithful and I have been reading your blog with genuine interest as it represents our own line of thought.
    I would greatly apprecciate if you could send me more information on both books you are offering and addittional charges for shipment all the way to Santiago, Chile.

      1. (Sorry master, I tried to email you but I couldn´t find your email adress on your page) Small world, it seems there is a Chilean in every place. I´d like to know what topics you cover in your book “How to Build a Dominant Fighter in 12 Months” and how I could order it. We are currently training to start fighting on national tournaments, but our empty hands skills are really poor since we have only been training counters and drills for the last 2 years (mea culpa). That´s why I´m interested in your book, I think it could give us a real push in achieving our goals within a twelve month period.
        Un abrazo y saludos desde Chile

  4. Master Gatdula,
    I recently read the e-book:’How to build a dominant fighter in 12 months’.
    Like,this evening.
    When i started the prompter at the top of my screen claimed it was 93 pages long!And i figured id read a bit every evening..
    Untill i had digested all its content.
    Instead,i read it all with such vigour.
    As it was presented in easy to read bold font.And spoke in a manner that has left me enthused and excited!
    I appreciate the insights shared.
    Best regards.
