To all students of mine in the field of martial art (NHS Arnis Pilipino,U.E. and P.S.B.A. Karate Arnis Taekwondo Alliance) the styles and method of training we use is called PALIS-SAGASA taught to me by the late Dr.Guilermo Lengson Grandmaster in Arnis and Karate ( KAFEPHIL). Palis (Palo-Alis) or Attack and side stepping,dodging.slashing techiques and away from the line of attack . SAGASA - a series of attacks and blocking techniques,a physical and mental conditioning of the body, using swift and superior force against an opponent (formulated by Dr.Guilermo Lengson and Johnny Chiuten). Sagasa was also used by the late Christopher "Topher" Ricketts, a senior fellow-student when we were under Doc. Lengson. But the "arnis-palis" part I was lucky enough to have been taught by Doc its complete series which I have not seen anywhere else as of this time. The term SAGASA was coined by Doc Lengson...the term PALIS is my own description of the entire complete series. I joined the club Black Banders Fraternity in 1975 and graduated seminarian 77 First Dan Blackbelt in Karate-Arnis. I was recruited then by Mrs. Celia Lim-Aquino who I considered as my 2nd mentor (after Doc). She was a business partner and co-producer of the KARATE-ARNIS PILIPINO TV SERIES in Channel 7 from 1975 until the early 80's alongside that of Doc as well as the FULL CONTACT MARTIAL ARTS TV SERIES in channel 4. She conferred upon me the LAKAN LIMA rank in ARNIS in 1983. For more historical backgrounds : www.fmadigest.com Vol.7 No. 1 2010.
