    Kabaroan Kalirongon Eskrima
    By OCman44 - 06-26-2009 03:59 PM


    I was curious if anyone happen to know about this type of Kali. I recently came across it online about a trainer who teaches it.

    Im wondering what the differences are between this system - Kabaroan Kalirongon Eskrima and the Inosanto/Lacoste system seing as how the facilities near me teach the Inosanto systems.

    Is it Tournament related or Self-defense related? Im looking more for the self-defense aspect of it but not sure what Kabaroan Kalirongon Eskrima teaches.

    Any info on it and what it teaches would be appreciated.

    Kalirongon doesn't ring a bell with me!

    I believe that Sensei Advincula made a name for himself in Isshin Ryu circles; he also produced a set of eskrima tapes with Panther Videos a while back. As I recall his eskrima was simple and realistic, blade oriented and more rural than town.

    That's a great way to word it. I found his tapes to be simplistic in approach, but his application lacked nothing. Not a flashy system, very basic attack-defend methods with solid footwork. He didn't come across as a man who was overly concerned about how long his sash was.

    I've heard both Kabaroan and Kalirongon terms before, but not in the same system.

    The way it should be IMHO...fancy & flashy will get you dead as a hammer quicker than crap through a goose.

    "Kabaroan" and "Kalirongan" are terms used to refer to fighting arts in the Ilokano-Pangasinan areas of Luzon (provinces of Ilocos Sur, Ilocos Norte, and Pangasinan). Other terms used are "Didya" and "Sinkatan".

    Hey Citom, thanks for citing the region the terms are used in!

    It's a pity Mr. Anthony Manansala no longer posts here.. I understand he is an instructor in the Estalila Kabaroan System..
