I concur with the foregoing! Let me add..and let me be straightforward about it. This story has no basis in fact and obviously fabricated to give a more "Eastern flavor" to Western boxing. I grew up in Cebu City, am still living in Cebu City considered the capital of eskrima and boxing in the Philippines and I've watched and talked and boxed since childhood... all I can remember from the great Cebuano boxers of yore like Flash Elorde, Tanny Campo, Kid Independence, Francisco Balug, Tony Jumao-as, Carl Penalosa, Tito Gonzaga, etc. was that contrary to what Inosanto et al are espousing, it's the reverse. These boxers were influenced by American hall of famers like Gene Tunney, Joe Louise, Sugar "Ray" Robinson, Kid Gavilan, Jersey Joe Walcott, Sonny Liston, Willie Pep, Sandy Sadler, Floyd Patterson. Panantukan is a non-existent martial art in the Philippines, likewise Kino-mutai (spelling deliberately changed ot give it a more oriental motif) by Paul Vunak. Kinomotay in Bisaya translation means - squeezing fight or mashing game. it's derive from the root word Komot, to squeeze. Among Cebuanos it also connotes a fight among women or homosexuals - not a deadly martial art but a sissy game! IMHO, I like WEstern boxing the way I learned from the great American boxers! These exotic sounding martial arts like Panantukan and Kinomutai have been fabricated long before the internet revolution. Their story tellers took comfort in the fact that in those days long before broad band, no one would be silly enough to go through the arduous job of digging into libraries to refute the veracity of these stories - like the kali urban legend!
