Engineering the Martial Arts

I have spent half of my life studying engineering, and the Filipino martial arts appeal to me because they fit hand in hand with certain engineering concepts. I learned early on in my life that memorization wasn't my strong suit, but if I could learn fundamental principles, then I didn't need to memorize thousands of things. When I found that FMAs operate under the same philosophy, I…

Bad habits

Had a great early morning training session with Dan and Janelle working on absolute basics.  I've heard it was Arnold Palmer who said "Practice doesn't make Perfect, perfect practice makes perfect".  It's funny how we all get into habits; little things that throw off our game.  I notice it myself in my daily routine.  I do my warm ups every morning at 4:30 during the week and sometimes, I phone…

Remembering Bobby.....By Ron Saturno

There was a gem of a man who once lived in Stockton, Ca. and not that very long ago. Loved by many and respected by everyone lucky enough to have had any contact with him: His name was Bobby Antuna.

I thought of him this Saturday when driving by Lindey's Dough nuts. I remembered sitting one day in Lindey's when Bobby happened to come in for some of the localy famous…

Ground Zero Post from Ron Saturno

Ground Zero.....

I grabbed a 'short' Serrada stick last night to work out with. I was visiting the old Harding Way School where Angel Cabales started Filipino Martial arts on the mainland in 1968. There is 'a lot' of history in that building.

So many famous people have gone through the doors of the Harding Way School that I can only hope that it is never torn…

The Importance of Lineage in Martial Arts

      Let me first tell you how I met GM Dr. Guillermo Lengson .



I was a high school student then when I trained under him at the gym of the Quirino Grandstand (in Luneta, Manila). To me, he was just an ordinary man and the way I saw him was he was not so impressive, like the martial art actors in a movie. He’s not tall; around 5’5 and had a big belly. I even wondered if I can learn something from this guy. But through a matter of faith, submissiveness, hard training and…

Larga Mano

Some thoughts on Larga Mano:

There is a difference between Larga Mano and using a long weapon.  Just using a long weapon does not mean you are playing Larga Mano.  Often I see long weapons used in close quarters or Medio range; even as close a Corto.  But this is not Larga Mano.  There are principles to Larga Mano that include range, footwork, timing and tactics.  Larga Mano principles can even be applied to empty hands if you think about it.  The choice of weapon is not all we should…

Here is the final report the curriculum of the 2014 Counterpoint Tactical System Iron Mountain camp. This last section covers the Standup Grappling and Double Knife level one drills that we did.

The Sundot

By: Noel Royeca (KOMBOKAN Fighting System)

Knife fighting can be a complex matter. Practical fight wisdom tells us that knife fighting must be swift and quick focusing mainly on lighting strikes. This article will focus on a simple technique borrowed from the ICE PICK (a simple sharp tool used to break a block of ice) called the SUNDOT or TUSOK.

The SUNDOT or TUSOK is to make a tiny hole by using a sharp object. In the Philippines where ice block making is a big business, the…
