    [FONT=&quot]An FMA Digest Special Edition has been released highlighting Rapid Journal, the leading martial arts magazine based in Manila. For those unfamiliar, Rapid Journal has been in circulation for over a decade and has featured top experts of fighting systems (both native and foreign) practiced in the Philippines. Major Filipino writers including Felipe P. Jocano Jr., Celestino Macachor, Alexander L. Co, Jopet Laraya and Jose G. Paman have contributed works to the quarterly over the years. [/FONT]

    [FONT=&quot]Unfortunately, and perhaps as a sign of our trying times, Rapid is ceasing publication with its last, upcoming issue. The FMA Digest Special Edition, whose link appears below, pays tribute to this remarkable magazine. It offers a complete list of back issues (available, it is noted, while supplies last), some representative articles and editorials, and contact information for those interested in purchasing remaining copies. Notably, US-based folks are able to order locally through Michael Bowers, through a telephone number listed on page 4 of the Special Edition. [/FONT]

    [FONT=&quot]Don’t miss the chance to obtain your copies because, as the man said, When they’re gone, they’re gone! [/FONT]

    [FONT=&quot]Here is the link... [/FONT]

    What a shame! I'm sorry to hear this. Magazines are having trouble in all categories, and both in print and in electronic form.

    What a shame indeed. For years, Rapid Journal has served as a guiding light, showcasing people and styles in the Philippines otherwise doomed to anonymity (just look at the Contents Pages to the back issues featured). The magazine will likely become a collector’s item over time.
