Reviews - What do customers think about Giron Escrima: Memories of a Bladed Warrior?

leaves things to be wished for  May 15, 2007
Well... First of all, I do not agree with the previous reviewer regarding the technical portion of the book. Namely, GM Somera did a good presentation of the system, though I would prefer more systematic approach to individual styles within the system, as it would give the reader better opportunity to gain some understanding of the underlying principles.
However, I must admit that the textual body of he book is not as good as I hoped for. first of all, there is quite a bit of reocurring information, which hence becomes redundant, and the space could have been used to gives us more of new/different stuff. I was also surprised to see that the author chose to dedicate more attention to the history of filipino societies in USA, not necessarilly related to the escrima background of the late GM Giron, at least not in the extent I would like it to be. Sure, these things are important to know and it is nice to spread that information, but than again I would rather see it available publicly in the Internet, since we're talking cultural background here. The money I paid for the book was hard earned, and I would rather spend it on the more narrow scope of interests, in this case FMA.

BTW, I do not know how to contact mazon department in charge of doing shipments, but when I choose to have my books shipped via regular mail, I really mean so, I DO NOT want them shipped via UPS, whose services are more expensive than the books themselves. This happened twice already, and I would really be gratefull if you people paid more attention in the future.
