“Secrets” of the Filipino Fighting Arts
Words from a Modern-Day Warrior


Master 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… 2 NEW BOOKS!!!

  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, and on hard copy for $19, plus $2 for shipping and handling.
  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 $15, and hardcopy (printed and bound with a soft cover) is $29, we pay shipping and handling!

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


Filipino Fighting Secrets Live:  Techniques and Fighting Strategy

This is the first book we are offering of the Filipino Fighting Secrets Live on Hardcopy series! In this series we are sharing our fighting philosophy that is unique to Filipino fighting arts, and can be applied to any striking system you practice.Guro Gatdula offers training tips, fighting techniques and fighting strategies not found in any FMA book on the market. Don’t fall for cookie-cutter empty hand FMA that is really Wing Chun and Eskrima-without-sticks. If you truly want to enhance your empty handed fighting, this is your only opportunity to find it in book format.

This book has been placed on the shelf until further notice.

Filipino Fighting Secrets Live:  Martial Arts Philosophy

Filipino Fighting Secrets Live:  Teaching Philosophy

  5. 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!

    • 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.

  6. 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.

    • chile? me cunyada ay de chile!

      gracias! que te gusta sabir de el libro? email me y te puedo decir mas!

      • (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
