I'm trying to get into panantukan. But i dont know where to start. I'd like to know where is comes from how is it different than Western boxing and how can I add open handed strikes to it.( I dont want to break my knuckles and cut my fists on teeth.) Does  anyone have a set of combos/ drills I can add to it. Thanks.

Find a fma school some of them have separate panantukan classes you can take its referred to as dirty boxing eye gouging, biting, locks, elbows, limb destruction and so on

There are a number of folks in the central valley who do this.  GM Art Gonzalez is one, up in the Acampo/Lodi area.

Check out Guro Michael Cardenas of the VEA Academy in Manteca...They are well versed in panantukan with the Decuerdas system from Gilbert Tenio and Max Sarmeinto.

Hello and good day. 

I have meet a couple of guys that are pretty proficient in panatukan.  I have trained with both of these guys and they very knowledgable.  Ed Burris in syracuse, new york and he does silat as well.  Tony ortiz in NYC and he learn under tom bisio (san miguel eskrima).  I hope this helps.

Hi Ben, I'm not sure where you live.  However, if you live in the Minnsota Area look up Rick Faye.  He has a great book on Panatukan as well teaches it.  Here in Michigan, we have Sifu Dave Hatch and Chris Malgeri that teaches the art as well.  Dave's web site is he is a student and instructor under Guro Dan Inosanto.

 Hey Ben, Michigan is host to a number of qualified instructors in Panantukan or Sinawali Boxing, Trapping Hands and Dumog in Modern Arnis. "It Is all the same!" I teach this at the American Martial Arts and Fitness Academy in Lansing Michigan. School website is or for GuroScott. Best of Luck!

Wow its been a year. Since I posted. I am still obsessed with Panantukan. Terry I have trained at Guro Mikes school for a bit. His stick-boxing is amazing and his empty hand is awesome as well. I started taking American boxing to improve my strikes and speed.  There are some things I noticed.

1) most FMA fighters dont train against commited boxing attacks.  Taking USA boxing will help make you a better training partner.

2) The offling in pekiti is amazing for jab and cross. But once the distance has been bridged. hooks start coming its best to use silat/usa boxing elbows.

3) Judo will really improve your dumong.

I totally agree...u need to test your training, against un cooperative opponents!.
