    Hi Pete! Thanks for responding to our martial arts poll. We like your ideas for new books.

    1. I do capoeira!
    2. Angola & Regional Capoeira
    3. Nope
    4. (if capoeira) More on the spirituality and philosophy of the art. And books on the angola (traditional) form. Also a book with proper guidance to the various movements.

    So far only Nestor Capoeira’s books have hit the spot.

    I would also like to see more books on muay thai (though, not just how-to books).


    Hope this helps!

    Good news! You’ll be happy to hear that we may have an upcoming comprehensive Capoeira book coming out in the Summer of 2009. The author is from Brazil, and practices traditional capoeira, although he prefers to target his book towards a universal audience, to avoid competition between rivaling schools of thought vis-a-vis Capoeira. It will include lots of hidden secrets and unknown tricks of the magical art. Although, I have a feeling he may not refer to his title as a title geared towards those who practice Angola or those who practice Regional.

    Thanks tkd-tricolore,

    We don’t have any high performance training manuals for taekwondo on any of our upcoming lists, so I’ll suggest it to our acquisitions board. Thanks for your input!

    Do you know of any good taekwondo manuals in other languages, that should be translated into English?

    1. Wushu
    2. Pak Hok Pai
    3. No
    4. I love history of the arts. There are lots, but none that I have found go any further then the begging’s of each art. I would like to see a deeper study done into the true origins of the arts and how they spread with civilization. When I read in the bible about warriors fighting 800+ men singularly with a staff over 2500 years ago and such I think there must be an even more ancient starting point in civilization from where the arts spread from.
