What Teacher/Coach??? What Style????

Posted on January 4, 2013 at 1:00pm 2 Comments

I always hear talk and discussions on "WHO" do or did you train with? What "STYLE", what Lineage?

You hear conversations on Digests and Networks like this and more. 

Many people in my humble opinion, take the STYLE, TEACHER, etc. as to being more important, because they think it legitmizes them and what they do ! After all, if they train under a well known teacher from a well known style, they must know what their doing and must be good ! Right??

                                                           Combat vs Art


                   In the Filipino martial arts you have the translation of techniques from weapon to empty hand. This is one of the unique qualities we have, and one that sets the Filipino systems apart from others. You use the same techniques, weapon vs weapon, empty hand vs weapon, empty hand vs empty hand, with little or no modifications. What a beautiful, compact, effective fighting…
