The true filipinos are those who remained patriotic to their motherland regardless which country they became another citizen. Their hearts and mind are still focused to the Philippines. How many Filipinos in the United STates, Canada and other countries who wants to be back to the Philippines. But how many despised their own country and refuse to acknowledged that Philippines is their motherland. There are more non-filipinos who want to be filipinos some got married to the filipinas and have children and were happy to be a part filipino . But how many filipinos understand the filipino culture. How many Filipinos who understand the real filipino that even the filipino language is interpreted as Spanish. How many do not accept that Kali is filipino and calling the filipino Martial arts Escrima in Spanish name with filipino stick in the Hand, How many filipinos who speaks Escrima and do not even understand what the word mean because it cannot be authenticated in Filipino language and cannot even be found in the Filipino dictionary. Those who cannot interpret true filipino culture in its right meaning has no right to practice the art because if he learn only or teach only by following without digging the meaning what he is teaching then who is he. Where are the filipinos. The filipinos are either a mixture of blood of another nationality or filipino by name but the true culture is no way to be found in his heart and his mind. As what other see they want to learn escrima because it is filipino. No you are not learning filipino , you are learning the Spanish Martial Arts escrima. How about Arnis ,Arnis is the same boat in different color but the same Blackbelt. Where are the filipinos . The real filipinos are those who practice the culture as legacy of the forefathers. Those who can stand in its right name and say I LOVE MY COUNTRY THE PHILIPPINES WITH EVERYTHING IN IT WITHOUT MIXTURE.
