Most Hilot in the Philippines are either learned from relatives, through hands on practice, or inherited from their forfeathers, passing the arts from one generation to the next. Anywhere you visit in the Philippines, most Filipinos are exposed to the curative value of Hilot.… Continue

Maharlika Kuntaw

I wonder why it is that many Filipino arts have incorporated Japanese Karate styles into their arts. I don't think they are really compatible.
