Brooklyn Monk releases book on Cambodian martial arts

For the first time, a book totally dedicated to Cambodian martial arts has hit the shelves.

Penned by ‘Brooklyn Monk’ Antonio Graceffo, the book, titled Khun Khmer Cambodian Martial Arts Diary, includes interviews with and profiles of most of Cambodia’s living masters and top fighters.

In his seventh book, 41-year old Graceffo, who recently represented Cambodia in a mixed martial art competition in Malaysia, deals with three forms of Cambodian combat – Pradal Serey (kickboxing), Jap Bap (wrestling) and the ancient discipline of Bokator.
