    Hello, I was wondering how many people here have backrounds in dumog.

    I do realize that their are many many styles of Filipino wresting just as their is Filipino arnis styles.

    However, I was thinking if there is any authentic Filipino wrestling that can be used in the ring of mma or be considered its own thing.

    When I say considered its own thing, I meant something along the lines of dumog being indigenous to the Philippines and being able to stand up on its own against other martial arts with out relying on foreign fighting systems to accomplish the job. People now a days have the attitude that "why do I need to take this martial art if the other can get me there better"

    An example would be how most people tend to take bjj or judo or something like chiense or european jacket wrestling or folk wrestling.

    I'm simply asking if dumog is something that can stand on its own with out relying on foreign arts

    I would also like to ask/add, if grappling chokes, pinns, armbars are also native to Filipino Wrestling as it is pinn wrestling, judo and jiujitsu.

    How many arms and legs do Filipinos have compared to other human beings? :confused:

    For some styles, yes. For example, Garimot Buno.

    I don't see how that applies to my question considering that I"m asking how dumog itself can be used in the ring. I mean i'm pretty sure its significantly different from what I"ve seen compared to stand up judo, western wrestling, and ground fighting bjj.
