    Welcome to the FMA Talk forums, Jason!

    I'm in Florida, but we have people on these forums from all over the world!
    Are you a student of the Filipino Martial Arts? I'm pretty new to FMA, but I'm really impressed with what I've seen so far.

    :)

    I'm not a student per-say, but I am learning modern arnis from my girlfriend who is filipino and from the philippines. She's not really into the modern arnis though. She likes kino mutai better, thats more her style and personality.

    Err.. unless I'm mistaken, I think Jasin was just trying to be funny. "Kino mutai" in the Visayan dialect means a catf1ght or a fight involving clawing, scratching and squeezing, preferably each other's faces. It comes from the root word "komot" which in bisaya means to squeeze or crumple.

    I think it was Paul Vunak who popularized "kino mutai" here as the art of biting the opponent. There is, well, "some debate" as to whether it's an authentic Filipino style!

    Oh it's authentic alright, as far as catf1ghts in the Philippines go. But as to whether it can be considered an art, I'm not so sure. Besides, I'm not sure any full blooded Filipino male would wanna be associated with that term, if you are a bisaya and you are accused of being involved in a "kino mutai" incident, they usually mean to imply that "you fight like a g1rl". (No offense to the women)

    I am Bisaya and full Blooded Filipino, and if unfortunately i am pinned down and not capable of using anything else to protect myself other than bitting my attacker ala Mike tyson, than call me 'bayot' or 'bakla' for all i care. It's typical of Filipino's to be close minded about anything. It's Machismo I think.

    I agree, I probably would do the same under the circumstances too. But to go so far as to actually market it as a separate martial art form and get paid to teach it is a bit too much I think.

    It's called american marketing at it's finest. For the geographically disadvantaged filipino martial arts practitioners who fall for anything that has a remote link to the Philippines, they snap it up in a new york minute..
    Everytime I see stuff like this, I am glad that I have a degree in marketing and glad that I don't prostitute the training that I've had over the years

    Or "Agi" for all the Hiligaynons/Illonggos in the house. I know the PTK practictioners would want to know what words to look out for when GT Gaje loses his temper and falls back into Hiligaynon. :)

    Hmm.. does that mean I can start marketing an art called "KuKagKalSab"? That's short for "Kurutan" (pinching), "Kagatan" (biting), "Kalmutan" (scratching), and "Sabunutan" (hair-pulling)...
