Filipino Martial Arts: Modern Arnis - Arnis was born on Philippine lands and is an acient art known as kali. Kali is a Malayan word for long bladed weapon. The Arts of Kali, Escrima & Arnis are part of the powerful Filipino Stick Fighting Arts. The arts blended the best elements of Filipino Jujitsu, stick and knife fighting into a brilliantly conceived, versatile and effective martial art. The Filipino Arts are a complete art, which will improve your empty-hand, ground-fighting, stick and knife-fighting techniques.
Cacoy Doce Pares - In 1947 the Doce Pares club reorganized. Ciriaco "Cacoy" Cañete was senior single Olisi (stick) instructor, at the Doce Pares club. He also taught pangamot (empty hand versus weapons). The single stick is a training weapon used to represent a short sword, machete (bolo, pinute) or knife. During this time Cacoy Cañete revolutionized the use of the stick, incorporating traditional linear strikes (corto orihinal) with hooking strikes, butts, thrusts and developing a system of curving and circular strikes (corto curbada); the strikes were used in conjunction with traps, locks, throws and disarms. Cañete began incorporating concepts of pangamot, ju jitsu and judo into his system as early as 1948; later incorporating aikido into his combat system. "Eskrido" or 'way of eskrima" was the name Cacoy Cañete gave to this revolutionary system of single stick combat.
Kyusho Jitsu: As taught by Dillman Karate International, this means one second fighting. Utilizing the pressure point techniques hidden in Kata to end a confrontation quickly.
Kiai Jitsu: Kiai Jitsu Sound Theory recognizes the existence of Five Elements and Five Energies that form all phenomena. Kiai Jitsu Fighting Method combines Kyusho Jitsu [Dim-Mak] - pressure points fighting with Kiai Jitsu - Sound Emission and Projection Fighting. Kiai Jitsu Healing Method combines five elements, five energies, five directional movements and five sounds.
Gen Yuan Kempo "Quan Fa": Gen Yuan Kempo is from both the Chinese and Japanese arts. Gen Yuan is translated as "the root source". Quan Fa in Chinses and Japanese translates to "fighting technique". Gen Yuan Kempo "Quan Fa" is 'the root source fighting technique'.
Dayanquan Gong Fu Wild Goose Qi-Gong: The Chinese word qiqong translates as "energy work" or "energy skill". Qi refers to the life force that flows through the body. This is not a imaginary force, but a real energy that can be cultivated to assist in providing a healthy body and mind. The cultivation and balancing of this energy or life force is at the heart of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
Wing Chun: Wing Chun is name after a women who was believed to found the skill. She learned martial art from a Buddhist non named Ng Moy. While the women trained with the Buddhist non, she was asked what is the name of the art. The Buddhist non asked what is your name? The women answered Wing Chun. The Buddhist non said name the art after yourself. Then she called it Wing Chun Kuen, which means Wing Chun Martial Arts.
Naabaahii Martial Arts: There are no formal traditional warrior arts being taught nowadays on the Navajo Indian Reservation for martial arts or combat purposes. There a few families who have traditional knowledge of bow making, hunting, tracking, making flint weapons, war clubs, and using them for ceremonial purposes. The mindsets of a Navajo Warrior are taught in ceremonies for protection of self and family. These arts are practiced in ceremonial dances. It was a way to save the cultural ways of a traditional Navajo warrior by practicing them in dances and ceremony. It is from these dances that Guro Brown recognized the Naabaahii close quarter combat movements that are hidden in the dance's. The Navajo Warrior used stealth as a way to camoflage themselves to getclose to their enemy. The Navajo Warriors are also experts at guerrilla warfare using tracking skills silently, the sheild and spear, bow and arrow, war club, and knife tactics. Our related Athabaskan speakers - the Apache have maintained their warrior ways by handing it down generation to generation, by practicing knife fighting, knife throwing, creating war clubs, using the bow & arrow. There are Navajo Veterans who have taught their children, newphews & nieces the way of the warrior from their military experience. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
