I hesitated a lot before writing this review because the idea of resurrecting the past using original sources is something wonderful and scary, wonderful because having againg what was, is in itself worthwhile. Scary because it is extremely difficult. Guy Windsor with his books, videos, essays and personal work is doing more than his share to accomplish a rebirth of our past.
The pun on Caesar's often quoted VENI VIDI VICI (I came I saw I conquered) is quite nice.
If you are interested in the old weapons of the West and on the fact that combat used to include all the weapons available (dagger, sword, wrestling, etc.) perusing this book is like travelling in time. An almost complete system that even includes different animals and symbols that gives a flavor very similar to what we have today in the martial arts of the orient and it is also a useful aid-memory.
Only for those really in love with western martial arts. Enjoy
Veni Vadi Vici is a great resource for people who want to have a deeper understanding of the Italian fighting arts as defined by Fiore and Vadi. For those who love German, or other nationalities, it will help you gain keen insight into the strategy used by Italian fighters.
