My goal is to promote the great Martial Arts and traditions of Filipino Weaponry. I am proud of our quality people who are here to learn and share the art of Kabaroan Kalirongon Eskrima.
I have been very blessed to have GrandMaster Ramiro Estalilla Jr as a mentor both throught FMA and through my spiritual development. I am dedicated to his teaching that, "No matter how deadly the technique may be, it must be done within the sphere of good motives behind a background of peaceful intentions".
IS KABAROAN KALIRONGON ESKRIMA?
Kabaroan Eskrima translates into "the Art of the Filipino Barons". The weapon system is taught within its three basic components; Single Weaponry (Bambolia & Sencilla), Double Weaponry (Compuesta), and Long Range weaponry. In the words of Grand Master Estalilla Jr. [The system is] "taught in the context of Philippine history and culture. A cultural approach to the Filipino Martial Arts humanizes the arts, civilizes the artist and refines the system."
Kalirongon (Largo Mano) Eskrima is primarily a bladed weapon fighting system indigenous to the Philippines yet with influences from Indonesia, India, China and Spain. The student is taught the five cut system of Cinco Tero with it's primary cuts of X and +. The system emphasizes angling, passing and merging.
WHY SHOULD I TRAIN IN ESKRIMA?
Eskrima offers the student an extensive training in conditioning, stamina, and agility within a friendly environment. The type of weapons used in our Eskrima classes range from the spear, staff, sword, double baston, sword and dagger, knife and empty hand.
We offers the student a comprehensive study of the deadly Filipino Martial Art of Eskrima with an emphasis in Kabaroan Kalirongon.. This Combat Weapon System is passed down to Master Ron Reekers from Grandmaster Ramiro Estalilla Jr. and Master Sam Dungca ( the heir to Grand Master Arsenio Advincula's Largo Mano system) respectively.
