Lightning Scientific Arnis

Mang Ben LemaA system founded in 1937 by Grandmaster Benjamin Luna-Lema. The system is composed of the Tercia, Cadenilla, Serrada and Espada Y Daga styles. It is known for its powerful, fluid, and fast strikes; its preference for "blind-siding" the opponent; and its focus on the stick and knife. An important principle in Lightning is closing with the opponent and 'blanketing' them with multiple strikes. Grandmaster Lema would say, "If he gives me one strike, I give him fifteen. Even if he does not give me one strike,I give him fifteen." The system is now headed by his daughter Patty-Jean Lema Caballero.
