    Arnis: A real Pinoy martial art

    A 2002 article on arnis in San Francisco as taught by Nestor Fernandez ("a 16th dan red belt of the arnis - Fernandez style"), from a Phil. newspaper.

    On another forum is a copy of a Salt Lake Tribune article on a police officer who practices Dekiti Tirsia Siradas. The article is no longer freely available at the paper's site; see this thread at Bullshido.

    Repeating from a previous post (for completeness):

    Arnis in NJ:

    Always good to see a "Stick Fighting" entry in a list of local activities:

    Middle School Eskrimador Wins Grappling Championship.

    World Champion

    She won a grappling tournament and the only art they mention is Doce Pares? I wonder if she also studies Judo or BJJ or the like?

    Warrior ethos

    A U.S. Army brigadier general teaches escrima to his troops in NC:

    On an unrelated note, this story talks about Russian President Vladimir Putin's trip to China and discusses his Judo background and a Shaolin kung fu demonstration.

    I enjoyed the foreign exchange student story!

    This is just an amusing anecdote from ED:
    On the Street: What book are you reading?

    An Iowa newspaper asks people what book they're currently person answers, "The Secrets of Cabales Serrada Escrima."

    Do you know him through the FMA, or through another connection?

    Greetings All - In regard to this post, we teach the full system of Doce Pares Eskrima at our academy - so all of our students learn their weaponry skills (doble olisi, solo olisi, baraw, espada y daga, etc) as well as their empty hand skills (punching, kicking, elbows, knees, headbutts, eye gouges, etc.) as well as their grappling (throws and takedowns, joint submissions, chokes and locks, sweeps, positional hold downs and reversals, etc.)

    My background contains a good deal of grappling and when I started to learn Doce Pares, the concepts easily flowed to the grappling range - we focus conceptually on sabayan - simultaneous attack and defense, continuous forward pressure, proper body angulation and footwork, proper hip torque within technique, etc.

    I always get a chuckle when our fighters arm is raised in victory and the announcer says that so and so of Doce Pares Eskrima is the winner and everyone in the crowd says, what the hell is doce pares eskrima??? It must be from Brazil, right? :)

    Have a great day and thanks for providing such a great forum for FMA conversations!

    DAMAG-INC Kali Combatives presentation video 2006

    I'm glad to read the feedback of both sides concerning this video. All the participants in this video (excluding myself) are all enlisted military personnel stationed at Ft Bragg and the 82nd Airborne. All the soldiers in the video (except 2 others, a rigger and a MP) are Special Forces guys that have been deployed to the "sandbox" (Iraq & Afghanistan) and have been there more than once. These guys are trained warriors, and to them this type of training is alot of fun and challenging. I take personal delight that these guys were even willing to go all-out the way we did. Many civilians would wince away from this type of training and they don't last too long as students. The training in our group is approached in a hardcore combative and dynamic approach with an equal consideration for SAFETY to avoid unnecessary injury in order to continue training. What I like even more about our approach in the way we train is that we MAKE NO EXCUSES for our desires and aim to become better fighters.

    Click the link below to view video:

    This video is a revision of both the DAMAG-INC 2005 and 2006 promo and demo videos in presentation format. DAMAG-INC Kali Combatives as taught by Daniel Arola in Fayetteville, North Carolina just down the road from Ft Bragg and the 82nd Airborne. Training emphasis via full-contact sparring and attributes drilling with sticks, knives and empty hands in all the ranges of head-on combatives, streefight proficiency and self-defense.
