    Hi,
    Im looking to study Balintawak Arnis from GM Bobby's system and want to know if there is any empty hands,knife,stick and dager,sword material in his curriculum apart from the single stick?if there is ,can anyone help with informing to me of its movements and methods of play within the system and does the blade work centre around palakaw if there is any?

    Thanks,
    Long Range.

    The curriculum centers around the use of the single stick. Empty hands skills are derived from the stick. There is no specific sword or dagger material in the curriculum.

    I see GM Bobby Taboada calls his system Balintawak Arnis Cuentada. I know he taught Teovel Balintawak. Is it a different style or system now?

    Bobby Taboada is from the lineage of Teofilo Velez, yes. He was not, however, part of the Teovel's organization. He had left the Philippines for New Zealand shortly before the formation of the Teovel's clubs with their color-coded chapter designations. Some people have incorrectly affiliated him with the Red Chapter.

    Even on Bobby Taboada’s absence he was honored and given the title to represent the Red Chapter under the Teovel’s Balintawak Arnis Group. He was like a son to Mr. Velez where he live, learned and trained for free. He was one of Mr. Velez’s early students in the 70’s who became one of the school instructors.

    Yes, he always speaks very fondly of those days and his time with the Velez family. A lot of the stories are very funny, too.

    Whereabouts in Europe are you? Perhaps the European Team might be of assistance: www.balintawakarnis.eu

    The site is down for maintenance, it says--but I'm encouraged to know there's a healthy Balintawak presence in Europe!

    GM Taboada,

    This sounds like an incredible event, and I hope my wife will give me some time off, so I can attend.:)

    It is always amazing when you can get instructors of this calibur in the same event. To whom ever is organizing this event, I would humbly ask you to consider that Sam Buot is not too far away. Also, I have learned that Sir Bobby Tabimina will be here in October as well. Imagine not three, but five of Balintawak's treasures in the same venue.
