Too bad. It's not like we have a huge wealth of good Fiore/Vadi tradition books out there to choose from.

Fiore di Battaglia

Postby David M. Cvet » 16 Feb 2009 15:39

Given the rather negative reviews, I don't think I will purchase the book. I do recommend, for those who seriously study Fiore to consider purchasing the Getty's high-rez CD-ROM of MS Ludwig XV13 (codice "GETTY") It is absolutely stunning in its clarity and beauty. A must for any serious researcher and practitioner studying Fiore's works. It will cost around $212 USD per CD, but if you can get your pennies together, it would be a great resource. There are constraints though, as they will NOT sell it to martial arts schools, but would sell to an academic or academic insitution, or someone working on their Ph.D. in a related subject.
