After 20 years of being out-of-print, GM Wiley’s book Filipino Fighting Arts: Theory and Practice is finally back in print.
The fighting arts of the Philippines are so vast and dynamic that few are able to grasp the true scope and essence of their training methods, techniques and fighting strategies. With this in mind, Mark Wiley, a renowned expert on Filipino martial arts, set out to write a book on the Filipino systems that would offer a structured comparison of 25 Filipino systems in terms of their training methods and progressions, fighting concepts, theories and strategies. In researching this book, Mark traveled to the Philippines a dozen times to meet and train with the masters and to uncover the secrets of these deadly arts. Profusely illustrated with over 500 photographs, this book reveals the incredible diversity of the martial arts which thrive today in the Philippines. Many of the photographs and much of the information in this book have never before been presented to the world at large.

“Guro Mark Wiley, and Sensei Russ Smith, are simply top notch. Guru Wiley’s skill is unparalleled with any eskrimador I have met, and teaching/presentation methods dwarf any teacher I have met. Another great experience.” — Joshua Durham
“Today I attended an “Integrated Eskrima” seminar conducted by Mark Wiley and hosted by Russ Smith. Mark’s concepts around timing, range, and their consequences related to technique are revolutionary. If that was not enough, his teaching methods are inspired. He is able to break down complex techniques, like disarms, into manageable steps and bake the lessons into very learnable steps.” –Kevin Andrew Helleran

“The Ground Never Misses” – Blog
“Mastering Eskrima Disarms” – Book Review
Dead Turkey day is literally right around the corner and I cannot think of a more appropriate martial art to discuss then the Filipino Martial Arts (FMA) of Eskrima / Arnis / Kali!? And what better topic then Mark Wiley’s latest book, “Mastering Eskrima Disarms.” A long overdue text on common defensive measures found in all styles and subsystems of the FMA (and really in all martial arts), addressing disarms would seem simple, but when looking at the broader scope of the subject we find it to be much more difficult to organize and pedagogically formulate. I am grateful that a seasoned researcher such as Mark Wiley tackled this subject, as I consider him the Tom Clancy of FMA writing.
Mark Wiley is a special kind of duck. Not only are his research skills top notch, but he has a kind attitude and honest love for the arts that grant him unprecedented access to teachers in all sub-styles of the FMA; something unheard of within a traditionally closed off and paranoid culture… Read the full blog review here…
