Pinoro Arnis L1: Basics of Korto Garote
Pinoro Arnis is NOT a new FMA system, but only the personal
and standardized expression of the systems
that I officially and proudly represent:
Kalye Todo Arnis, De Campo 1-2-3 Original and Igmat Baraw K.F.S.
It is the way I understand, practice and teach these systems,
not altering in any way their concepts and principles – which are the true essence.
Deepest gratitude and appreciation to my FMA teachers –
Cat Necula and Bobby Dela Rosa, as well as to other masters
that shared bits of their knowledge with me – Guro Tony Yarwood,
Sifu Adrian Tautan, Guro Benjamin ”Lonely Dog” Rittiner etc.
Of course, many thanks to my dedicated
and hard working students/training partners!
The first level of study deals with the basics of Korto Garote
(short distance stick fighting) and contains: coordination drills,
Numerada, Abecedario progression, Pendulum progression
and the first steps of Agak (”guiding”, flow development).
