Description - The Secrets of Giron, Arnis Escrima by Tony Somera

The history of the Philippines and its martial arts is one of resistance and revolt, and the biography of Leo Giron is the life story of one of those revolutionaries. Giron learnt martial arts as a necessity of survival, not a luxury, and practised them in jungle warfare during World War II. Tony Somera, the world's leading practitioner of the Giron style, tells his story and explores the twenty fighting styles that make up Giron's system. With over 300 historic and instructional photographs, this book truly reveals the secrets of Giron arnis escrimna.
