    A friend gave me the Ron Balicki Fighting Sarong DVDs. Really cool stuff, but I don't really have time to work on sarong techniques. I really like his teaching style, and he seems like a good guy.

    My God, Japan and America colonized the Philippines more than once, why couldn't any of those two countries share and propagate Judo, Kyokushin etc. here in this country.

    Instead, we get TKD, when Korea barely did nothing in connection with the Phil.

    I come from Mindanao, Eskrima Birthplace, and the only place you can learn the art is in the fucking mountains, you can find 5 TKD dojangs here though, and 4 Aikido Dojos, Oh yeah, Judo and authentic BJJ is non-existent here, makes me wonder how the **** the country got so screwed in choosing it's arts, thank the Lord for Boxing though.

    Oh yeah, and for all the stuff foreigners did to us, we still don't have a Wal-Mart or a Costco, not even a Target, instead, you give us Starbucks.

    Christ, and I keep hearing these ****-load stories that Lapu-Lapu (Filipino Hero) used Eskrima against the armored hordes of Magellan, which is just pure bullshit.

    I thought the Magellan's death at the hands of Lapu-lapu was pretty much a historically documented fact.

    It is.

    The Bullshit part was Lapu-Lapu's use of Eskrima to kill Magellan. This is what many foreign Eskrimador's think.

    Filipino historians know he used swords and spears to kill him.

    Please guys, get that mentality out of your heads.

    Lapu-Lapu and his men did not use Eskrima to kill Magellan, they used swords and spears and the advantage of being prepared.

    FMA (and silat for the large part), are at their root, sword and spear arts.

    My experience is training is 80% blade to maybe 10-15% impact weapons(with empty hands taking up the slack).
