A highly effective and well-rounded Filipino martial art, Cabales Serrada Escrima uses basic stick-fighting movements whose applicability extends into both unarmed engagement and knife fighting.
In Secrets of Cabales Serrada Escrima, Mark V. Wiley offers not only a clear presentation of the strikes, blocks, counters, and disarms unique to this style, but goes beyond mere self defense techniques into the concepts underlying the fighting art, explaining how and why the moves work, and when best to use them.
This revised and expanded edition of Mark Wiley's authoritative volume presents the heart of the Cabales Serrada system in six clear parts: an outline of the history and development of the system, personal accounts of Grandmaster Angel Cabales, discussion of the dynamics of body positioning and distance control, sections on the art's core single-stick and empty-hand defensive methods, as well as a comprehensive set of drills.

I have read the book and it doesn't get any better than this. Mr Wiley is very accurate on the system and techniques because he is an Escrimador. He didn't just read some books than write this book. This book is long overdue. No one has given credit before like this book does, to the early students of G.M. Angel Cabales. In the early days G.M.Angel didn't have one paper, no application, class out line, or certificates of any kind. Everything you learned, you kept in your head, that way other students wouldn't know what number or how many blocks you really knew. Mr. Mark Wiley has given our great Master, Angel Cabales the highest honor by rewriting this new book. Tuttle Publishing has a top notch author of Fililino Martial Arts, and should be very lucky and proud of his quality products.
