  1. I never learned arnis. They taught it after I graduated high school so my whole class missed it. too bad too because I want to learn one form of self defense or two

  2. cool that kids as young as they are could get this combat training! now what do i know about that Filipino weaponry? i have seen arnis, haven't heard of Kali and Escrima until your post Gil! thank you for sharing.

  3. i have had arnis lessons before only during high school as part of our P.E. was learning arnis..

    1. Same here! I was first year at the time. Oh I love it!

      Kids should learn this activity for self-defense. :)

  4. good to know special training sessions like these are available to elem school children, it will help them develop not just physically but also discipline...keep up the good work Sir Gil and the rest of the group!

  5. I miss doing the art Arnis :) Learned using a pair in highschool!

  6. I recall using arnis as a requirement for our PE class way back in highschool and that was the best PE I had back then. I think I still have the moves but I may not be that quick as I was before.

  7. Arnis reminds me of my godfather. He always practise every morning and he used to teach other kids which is good. Tnx for sharing sir Gil!

  8. Used to do arnis in school and I enjoyed it...

  9. i had arnis for PE and wow, it was really tiring but very worth it.
    hopefully causes such as this one would continue :>

  10. Used to love Arnis when I was in HS :)

  11. wow martial arts! I used to like watching karate movies, i'm the only girl in the family and my brothers and my dad are a fan of Jackie Chan so I always want to learn karate but unfortunately never had the chance... i heard about Arnis too.. kaso I'm super lampa.. I don't thinks I can do it.. ;(

  12. Arnis was our PE in high School but I never applied it

  13. I used to play Arnis when I was still in grade school . It was even part of our Physical Education.

  14. bring back memories of my college PE..Arnis is one module to pass and there was like a final exam where we have to show our Arnis skills. It was mad and scary but since I really wanted to get good grades I poured out all valiant blood in me and fought my opponent with superior skills. Oh I could not forget that and it taught lessons too. Learning arnis is learning how to have greater control of your reflexes. The art is discipline itself.

  15. I just learned doing the tricks when I was in 5th grade. We were taught of arnis as a self defense and as a part of our PE. I am glad this kind of art is still being practiced by the young students. :)

  16. I never had anything like this when I was a kid. We only had "calisthenics". :)

  17. I also never learned Arnis.

    May PE bang ganito sa UP Diliman?

  18. everybody has own way of developing self-discipline and it's good that this sport teaches youth and adults alike to work on it at the same time
