    I plan to try out Cacoy Doce Pares Eskrima as taught by the Patalinghug family in January. So far the internet research I have done has not raised any red flags. I am curious if this is a respectable style/lineage of Eskrima or something I should stay away from?

    The style and lineage is good. The question is who will be teaching you?

    Unfortunately I don't know enough about GM Cacoy's people to be able to advise you.

    I have trained in the past with one of Garrett Sensei's students, and been to seminars with him. He is legit when it comes to Gendai Budo, but his Jujutsu style should not be confused with Koryu. I am not saying that to be mean or to knock him, just as an FYI. When it comes to Cacoy Doce Pares, you might check with Zach Whitson http://www.tacticalmartialarts.com/. Zach is highly ranked in PTK, but has also studied Cacoy Doce Pares in the PI and should be able to help you when it comes to determining legitimacy. I have spoken on the phone with him in the past and he is very willing to help people find good places to train.

    Funny to find a thread about oneself. Rob, I hope you enjoy training with me!
