    Well, this is an interesting one! While I have already been well acquainted with the works of Mr. Vargas and Mr. Loriega, this book is different. There are several things that make it well worth your time. First, the authors have managed to truly get to be all over the map - from South Africa in the South to Scandinavia in the North; and from Japan in the East to USA and Argentina in the West. That said, the book presents several recognizable proponents of the blade aspects of combat (Scott Babb, Ramon Martinez, authors themselves), as well as quite a few of those that most people are unaware of, but deserving of recognition. At the first glance I was bit thrown off by the uniform survey, i.e. questions to all of the featured experts, but it didn't long to see its advantages. This format enables the reader to really take notice of the differences among different approaches and philosophies of their exponents, but even more importantly, to see what are the common themes and principles... More > that seem to be universal, which means should be focus of one's own training. In conclusion, after having read the book, I can only hope the authors will at some point be able to put together another volume...or two!< Less

    MASTERS OF THE BLADE is the latest addition to a growing body of work produced and published by this tireless team. They seem to pick the right subjects, know the right practitioners, and ask the right questions. Part of their skill is in uncovering individuals that we've all heard of but have no ready access to. In this current work, we are able to glean perspectives from masters, the likes of Ramon Martinez, Rick Wigginton, and Blaise Loong. We also get a chance to read the personal teaching methods of the editors themselves—Loriega and Vargas—both well-known and well-traveled. Masters of the Blade is a must-have for any martial artist who regards him/herself adept at wielding a blade.
