I have been studying/teaching many filipino arts such as: Latosa Escrima, Sayok Kali, JKD Kali, Bakbakan Kali, Garimot Arnis, Black Eagle Arnis-Escrima, and Cabales Serrada Escrima. I was wondering what your thoughts on the filipino arts are.

Do you really train or just bore people on message boards and parties talking about it.

I studied Dumog martial arts for 2 years. Its almost like BJJ or more like greco-roman wrestling. Its effective mostly for 1on1 matches,since most of the attacks are based on lock and submission. i Give it a 8/10

I study sayoc Kali and escrima, I think they are very practical and effective. It seems they are less theoretical and romantisized than other strains of martial arts.

I dont recal Bakbakan International EVER refering their art as "Bakabakan kali".
Kalis Illustrisimo is more like it.

Kalis Illustrisimo and Bakabakan kali are similar but not exactly the same. Kalis Illustrisimo is the parent art of Bakabakan Kali and while Kalis Illustrisimo and Bakabakan kali have very similar core techniques Bakabakan Kali has more prearranged froms, drills, and training methods than Kalis Illustrisimo. It also incorporates techniques and training from other filipino arts such as Sagasa Lameco Escrima, Sinawali, and Placido Yambao's espada y daga.

Interesting! You learn something everyday! Whats the history of Bakbakan Kali is it a a split group or was it developed by Illustrisimo's earlier students (whom dont belong to Bakabakan International)?
Keep up the great posts!

Junfan, if as you stated in your intro post that Rick Faye, and MNkali Duluth have been the only places where you learned FMA, how can you claim training in Latosa Escrima, Sayok Kali,Bakbakan Kali, Garimot Arnis, Black Eagle Arnis-Escrima, and Cabales Serrada Escrima? MNkali Duluth/Rick Faye do not teach these styles. So how then did you receive this training?
As for Bakbakan go to their website, and under fighting arts there are explanations of what they do.

I was waiting for you to come around Kuya. It sounded fishy to me, but I don't have the experience in our native arts that you do.

Needless to say, I slowed down.
