*****MODERN ARNIS FOR THE NEW MILLENNIUM
--- 5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommend all Dan Anderson products
By Loren W. Christensen on September 22, 2014
Anything Dan Anderson puts out is a true gem. He is not only an extraordinary expert of arnis but he is also a master of the kick/punch arts, having trained since the 1960s and fought and defeated many, if not most, of the nations's top ranked tournament fighters.
Highly recommend all Dan Anderson products.

--- 5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding By Brian Mangus on September 1, 2012
I have several of Guro Anderson's books and this one is a syllabus on his take on modern arnis. Regardless of what style of FMA you study, this book is a great reference. Combined with his book on basic and core principles, you have enough material to practice for 2 years and longer.
--- 5.0 out of 5 stars Complete progression of skills from White to Black Belt in Arnis By stojoe on August 15, 2012
This recently released volume provides the complete curriculum of required skills to progress from beginner to Black Belt in Prof. Anderson's MA80 System of Arnis/Escrima.
The book is very well organized and offers clear explanations & many illustrations of the progression of techniques through the various belt levels. Instruction includes single stick, double stick, espada y daga, disarms, empty hand applications & joint locks.
I have a number of Prof. Anderson's books on Filipino Martial Arts and, while they are all excellent instructional materials, this book would likely be the best one to buy if you wanted a complete single volume explanation of his system of Arnis.
*****The Dan Anderson Encyclopedia of Modern Arnis vol. 1 by K Yee
Another winner! As with all of Professor Dan Anderson’s books, this one is jam packed with information and insights. This book sets out in alphabetical order the technical aspects of Modern Arnis including those that are specific to Professor Anderson’s school (MA80). The photographs of topics that have been covered in other Professor Anderson’s books are new to this volume and can serve to provide new insights into those topics particularly where the photographs are taken from different angles to those in other books. This book is indispensable to Arnis practitioners of Remy Presas lineage or anyone who is interested in Arnis. I look forward to the release of Volume II.
