41. Spanish Influence On Filipino Martial Arts?
it went on to make the inaccurate and misleading statement that the Spanish rapier and dagger system of fighting has had a great influence on filipino arts .
Home About ARMA Where to Start What's New ... Index The Influence of Spanish Renaissance Swordsmanship on Filipino Martial Arts? by John Clements What the author fails to mention, is that the very reason we know of the battle's outcome is because Magellan's ship actually escapes (surely not the most decisive victory on the part of the locals). Anyway, the book cites this incident of local historical pride to emphasize how formidable the native fighting skills were/are. But wait. The very next statement is how in 1571, another Spanish explorer under orders to colonize, attacks a native force on another island and faces the "even more formidable" Kali warriors with their (and this is not being made up) fire-hardened rattan sticks. It also says (to quote) that "the native fighting skills far exceeded those of the Spanish". Indeed? Of course, this author then acknowledges that the Spanish/Portuguese actually go on to win the battle, but suggests that this was "due to their firearms." However, a few light-calibre shipboard cannon and inaccurate, slow firing arquebuses in a tropical climate are not about to win a battle over overwhelming odds (back in Europe at the time, they had a lot more guns and still they had to rely on massed pikes and cavalry). Notice also how no credit is given the Spanish/Portuguese's clear military superiority in training, discipline, armaments, tactics, organization, leadership, morale, etc.? The very fact they had high-carbon steel tipped halberds and carefuly tempered chest plates was in itself a big factor, a very formidable one (in fact a generation earlier, Spanish sword & buckler men were trashing the vaunted Swiss pikemen all up and down Europe's battlefields and over-running Italy). What is more remarkable is how a few hundred sailors and men (not even first class Renaissance soldiers in their prime), thousands of miles from their homes and families, continually outfought supposedly "superior" warriors in a hostile and unfamiliar land.

Testing is a difficult time for everyone. The testing determines whether or not you are capable of advancing in rank. If you pass, then you receive your new rank at the next class after the belts and certificates arrive, if you don't, then you train for 6 months and try again. Testing occurs only twice a year, once in January and once in July. Testing is difficult and you can fail (although I've yet to see that happen to anyone). It is meant to put pressure on those taking the test because it shows how much knowledge you have under pressure as in real life situations.

Quote of the Minute...
Mr. DePree also expects a "tremendous social change" in all workplaces. "When I first started working 40 years ago, a factory supervisor was focused on the product. Today it is drastically different, because of the social milieu. It isn't unusual for a worker to arrive on his shift and have some family problem that he doesn't know how to resolve. The example I like to use is a guy who comes in and says 'this isn't going to be a good day for me, my son is in jail on a drunk-driving charge and I don't know how to raise bail.' What that means is that if the supervisor wants productivity, he has to know how to raise bail."

Martial Arts Planet Styles Filipino Martial Arts View Full Version : the dying filipino martial arts Jordan Why is it that there is so many schools that teach martial arts, but rarely you can't find any filipino ones? I'm an Aikidoka but I love the filipino martial arts, why will no one learn them and teach them. I would love to learn them.
Are there any schools in Kansas that teach them?
:confused: YODA Filipino Martial Arts are alive and well Jordan :D
They're alive anyway. One reason is that the schools usually do not advertise themselves.
Second, the filipino martial arts are so exotic that most people have never heard of them.
Third, it is overshadowed by more popular martial arts. In fact, takwondo is more popular than arnis (eskrima or kali, its tha same) here in the Philippines.
The final reason is the most ugly. Racism. There are people out there that feel that only nurses and domestic helpers come out of the Philippines. surgingshark I agree...they're quite hard to find.
I haven't yet found a Sikaran or Yaw Yan school here in Long Beach...or people who've actually heard of the said arts, for that matter :p Andy Murray Originally posted by surgingshark

Kali - Escrima - Filipino Pesagi Tolong Brief History: Filipino martial arts was flourishing in the Philippines islands at the time of the arrival of the Spanish conquistadors in the fifteen century. The Filipino martial arts were practiced and established before this time and its roots can be traced back to the Indonesian empires and the Hindu Malayan Arab missionaries. Filipino native arts promote employment of several categories of self-defense.1.Empty hand tactics Panatukan, Sikaran Balaraw, Sisip, Klewang Baston,Olisi,Garrote 4.

    Filipino arts
    get new home
    By Joleen Oshiro
    Thanks to the unflagging interest of retired director George Ellis, the Honolulu Academy of Arts opened a new gallery Wednesday that is dedicated specifically to Filipino art. The fittingly named Art of the Philippines: The George and Nancy Ellis Gallery houses the academy's rich historical collection, including textiles, sculptures, household implements and personal adornments. Pieces on loan or donated from Filipino art collectors past and present are now on display in the gallery.
    A head cloth tapestry woven of cotton and silk was created in the Sulu Archipelago by the Tausug People.
    A large St. Thomas Aquinas wood sculpture, shown at right, for example, is among a group of wood sculpture works donated by Henry Clark. The gallery is divided into three areas of study: Art from pre-western contact times, the Spanish Colonial period and the indigenous arts of the Northern and Southern Philippines. The gallery is the culmination of Ellis's 20-year, career-long dedication to growing the academy's Filipino art collection. In alignment with academy founder Anna Rice Cooke's intention to educate isle youth about their own ancestry and the ancestry of their neighbors the collection has long provided cultural education for the community, as more than 16 percent of Hawaii's population have cultural ties to the Philippines.

    A distinctive feature of all of these filipino arts is their use of geometry. filipino arts place great emphasis on footwork, mobility, and body positioning.
    News About Us Schools Events ... Miscellaneous
    Kali, Escrima, and Arnis are all terms for the native fighting arts of the Philippines, specifically the arts that use weapons. Arnis is a Northern Term, Escrima more Central, and Kali is from the South. In this view, the terms just refer to indigenous weapons fighting systems. Arnis would be the term used in Northern Luzon, Escrima from Manila through the central islands, and Kali on Mindanao. People who use this definition tend to say that the words don't matter - every village, and often every master, has a distinct style, and that's what the important thing is - "do you study Illustrisimo, Caballero, or Cabales style?" Not "do you study escrima or kali?"
    Kali is an older art than Escrima or Arnis, and more comprehensive. Escrima and Arnis were developed as streamlined, simplified ways to teach people to fight the Spanish invaders. Hence, Kali is more of a "warrior's art" while Escrima and Arnis are "soldier's arts". Kali is usually considered to have 12 areas of combat, with Escrima containing 8 or 9 of them, and Arnis 4 to 6.
    The "full" coverage alluded to above usually contains the following:

    What's New Timeline Articles Techniques ... Contact Us
    Modern Arnis Program The art of Modern Arnis was founded by Professor Remy Presas, who synthesized his experiences with a number of traditional Filipino arts into his special method. Professor Presas fought many real life challenge matches with sticks when he was young, and his life story was one that would make an unforgettable movie! He ran away from home, stowed away on a boat, and went to another island when he was a young man as a way to test himself and improve his Arnis...he traveled the world as an ambassador of Filipino martial arts as an adult...and he created more interest in the arts of his homeland than perhaps any other single individual today.
    I have studied Modern Arnis since the mid 80's, and in 1991 was awarded my Black Belt by Professor Remy Presas. Since then, I have worked with many other instructors to learn their specific skills and insights into the Filipino martial arts, but I have always been glad to have learned the Presas Style Modern Arnis as a base to work from.
    Professor Presas always stressed that we were to take the art and learn to use it in new combinations and innovate with what we were taught. We were trained not to stick to one application or way of doing a drill, but to constantly find new ways to learn and use what we had. Professor was less interested in people copying his movements than he was with having them find ways to apply the concepts behind them in their own individual way. We all learned to better teachers by watching him, too.

    Kali, escrima or arnis de mano , stick fighting was developed over a period of many centuries in the Philippines as her people fought for their independence from foreign invaders. Each skirmish with a new culture added to the Filipino Martial Arts as Kali warriors developed techniques to combat foreign styles. Subsequently, more than 100 different Filipino Martial Arts styles developed, which can be grouped into three complete self-defense systems which utilize sticks, swords, empty hands and other weapons. The systems are called Northern, Southern, and Central. Spanish conquistadors, led by Ferdinand Magellan, invaded the islands in the early 1500s. A pirate according to Filipino history, Magellan was slain by the heroic chieftain Lapu Lapu and his men. The armor-clad Spanish, overpowered by the fierce islanders and their fire-hardened sticks, retreated. In the 1570’s, unable to match the conquistadors’ muskets, the Philippines fell under Spanish rule. The Filipinos preserved their Martial Arts by integrating it into native costumes and dances, often performing Kali movements in the form of dance for the pleasure of Spanish dictators.
