Along with "Journal of Asian Martial Arts" (JAMA), this is one of only two historically serious martial arts periodicals that I know of. While JAMA has more of an academic overtone and prints articles on a wide variety of subjects, CFA is more engaged in the dirty work of digging up and reporting primary source material and has a narrower focus. My main criticism of CFA is that it has an overwhelming amount of advertising, but I buy it anyway because it is the only place to get certain information and because I value the work that its contributors do.
Please note that the other 3-star reviewer did not really review this magazine.
Classical Fighting Arts magazine review
As a martial artist practicing kenpo karate, kali and jujutsu, I find the historical reference articles published in this magazine to be superb.
Nationalism In Force
I read 'Classical Fighting Arts' for years, ever since they first switched from the name 'Dragon Times,' and though there is much to admire in CFA, such as the interviews with Okinawan karatedo masters and articles examining the evolution of karatedo since the early 20th Century, I often find more to disdain in this magazine than to enjoy.
Much of the magazine attempts to look like a scholarly study of the classical and historical Asian martial arts, but with just a little closer of a reading, the shoddiness of much of the scholarship, as well as an overzealous sense of Okinawan nationalism, shows through.
