Our goal is to spread and educate the people about the Philippine Culture and to expose the effectiveness,simplicity and realism of the Filipino Fighting arts.
Our group practice The Pakamut System from the Island of Cebu, which involves:
Impact weapons such as single sticks, and double sticks.
Bladed weapons such as; Pinuti (Filipino Swords), Knives, Daggers, Balisongs (Butterfly Knives) and Karambits.
Empty Hand section in the art is called Suntukan (Filipino Boxing). Suntukan is known to be the "Dirty"Boxing in martial arts. Suntukan is a street based, survival fighting techniques that are not designed for sports. Suntukan involves not only punches and kicks. It also includes hammer fists (Similar to stick striking), limb destructions, elbows, knees, groin kicks, "dumog" (Filipino Wrestling and grappling), joint manipulation and joint breaking that is applicable for self defense situations
For competitors, we schedule a private/small group training session once or twice during the week.
