PREFACE " WHEN I WAS WRITING THIS BOOK, I WAS GREATLY INSPIRED BY THE ANCIENT FILIPINOS WHO FOUGHT AND DIED PROTECTING OUR MOTHERLAND FROM INVADERS. THEY WERE THE FIRST TEACHERS OF FILIPINO MARTIAL ARTS (FMA). NOW THEY ARE NAMELESS, LONG FORGOTTEN BY THE YOUNGER GENERATIONS. THIS BOOK AIMS TO REACH THE BASIC MOVEMENTS OF SOLO BASTON (SINGLE STICK) IN ORDER TO PROMOTE THE FMA OF ARNIS KALI, AND ESCRIMA, ESPECIALLY AMONG THE YOUTH TODAY. IT ALSO SEEKS TO IMPART THE POSITIVE VALUES AND DISCIPLINE THAT COME FROM THE PRACTICE OF THESE MARTIAL ARTS. FINALLY, THIS BOOK HOPES TO CONTRIBUTE TO THE PRESERVATION OF OUR AUTHENTIC FILIPINO FIGHTING CULTURE AND TRADITIONS, IN HONOR OF OUR HEROIC ANCESTORS." -- RICHARDSON C. GIALOGO (AUTHOR)
