The group of Haring Bakal in the Metro Manila area finds its roots in the group in Mindanao called "Ilaga". These group were trained by Dodong Aquilino "Lagari" Gulang, also called "Tatay Lagari" and Commander Aguila (Eagle). Many of its blessors in Mindanao who migrated to Metro Manila formed their own group called "Haring Bakal". In essence, an initiate is being hacked by a razor sharp bolo 6 times, 21 times, 36 times and 57 times, for a total of 120 times strike (full swing). Actually, the more conservative members of the "Ilaga" ang "Haring Bakal" forbid their group to show their skills on Youtube or any form of video. This is a highly secretive Filipino art.

just to make a stand on this,I'm also a Haring Balkal in Bacolod acquired from Davao during the time the late Founder of the group Tatang Lino Lagari or Ka Aguila non of the group ever give this old man a honor on this film.
Haring Bakal in the late 80's in the height of insurgency is a secret org.of vigilantes armed with bulos and amulet.If any wish to ask about this group I can also answer that interesting question thanks.By the way I am also a Blessur of this group but none ever want to atemp to be hack by me.
