    I know one group that does Sikaran as its own complete art that includes more than just foot-fighting and another group that considers it "only" the kicking part of a larger art. The Geronimo group in the Phil. treats it as a complete martial art, I know.

    How many people think of the kicking part of their art as sipa/sikaran and don't think of it as a full system unto itself?

    I know that I teach the hands as well as the feet. I also know that without hands you are at a disadvantage in the street.

    I understood that Ric Jornales considered it (and sipa) a sub-art based around kicking in his original formulation of Arnis Sikaran as Arnis-Kali Sipa-Sikaran, but I know other groups consider it a complete system. I've seen it both ways!
