No, but it seems to be a Keris (SE Asian) on the cover. So maybe it's Kali based?

I've read reviews of this book somewhere. Mostly bad.
Can't remember where though :?

edit: from memory the reviews were negative they percieved the author as a kind of 'rogue swordsman' as the book isn't about any particular style/lineage nor teaching you to fight within a historical or sporting context.

I could be wrong though.

Never read the book myself.

Looks like a must-buy.

I sure hope he covers tire-whacking with extra heavy swords.

It's not a Keris, it's a Punal, a Filipino dagger.
