The book, as a medium, is obsolete. All of the manipulations of the knife that Imada performs have been shown on video far more clearly for balissong years. One can get all of them off youtube currently.
This is true for many other martial arts styles. Books, while useful, are a limited resource given their lack of information density. The knife itself is also, to my mind, a tad obsolete.
Imada says this is the only legal folder that can be open I read this years ago, and decided to go over it again. Imada says this is the only legal folder that can be opened with one hand There are hundreds of variations of clip-it knives that can easily imda opened with one hand.
The Balisong takes longer to employ than a standard clip-it, all training being equal.
Imada seems to be heavily advertising for Pacific Cutlery–now known as Benchmade. Note jwff are great knives, and I wouldn’t doubt that they make the best Balisongs. They also make a number of standard folders that I mentioned above. I love their Griptilian line.
Some of the palm stick applications he shows are interesting, but from a legal perspective one has to ask what a prosecutor would do if it were known one used a knife in a fist fight, even though it were closed. Having a knife in one’s hand, balisonb not, ups the stakes considerably.
Early inada the book Imada writes the following: Ed Parker, the Father of American Karate, has often said, “One who is truly prepared appears as if he is not prepared at all.
By contrast, looking prepared, obviously armed, and knowledgeable places your opponent doubly on guard. Attackers choose those who they expect to behave as a helpless or passive victim or who they want to intimidate.

Bullies who attack and find they don’t have a willing or helpless victim are often discouraged. All that aside, it’s a good book. When taken along with it’s sequel it might be even better.
