    Raisin,

    GM Bobby Taboada has a website (with a forum for questions) that you might want to check out - if you haven't already.


    www.worldbalintawak.com

    Good luck with your training...

    Rob

    Just wanted to say i like your chart... I was wondering if you have contact information for any of the instructors that are still in Cebu City. I've been training here but I want to meet some other instructors before I leave next month. If you can help me out that would be awesome.

    Hey There,

    I took a lesson with GM Rodrigo Maranga, the son of GM Timor Maranga, and he is exceptional. He and his family teach in Cebu City. His contact info is here:

    http://maranga.8m.com/

    You may want to go and see Sergio Arcel as well. I've not had a chance to train with him, but he is well respected and of direct lineage himself to Anciong Bacon. This is his website:

    http://balintawak.4t.com/index.html

    I've also had a session with Master Nick Elizar and he is a great teacher of Teovel's Balintawak. His contact info is here:

    http://www.visayanmartialarts.com/nickelizar.htm

    Good luck in your studies.

    I think a few guys are missing from the Balintawak family tree. Does anyone know where the late Jose Millan, aka Joe Go, is situated in the family tree? He was a personal student of Anciong Bacon, one of the guys who stayed with him till the end.

    I noticed that too. Some of the more noticeable missing names are Atillo, Mongcal, Velez, Villasin, Chiuten, Arcel, etc. But Tim does admit that it's a work in progress and that he's yet to complete it and to be fair, it's going to be a lot of work to get even just all of the major players in one chart.

    This is the list that Manong Ted gave me at my first training session. What he told me was this is a list of people who started thier own clubs. Since then I've found more of our family. "Joe Go's" people have been found in Toronto Canada. Also with Rey Galang's book it will speed up the search.

    This is a tough one. Where does Atillo fit in?

    Rey Galang's boo, Warrior Arts of the Philippines, has chapters on the following balintawak players:
    Anciong Bacon
    Sergio Arcel
    Johnny Chiuten
    Nick Elizar
    Timoteo Maranga
    Rodrigo Maranga
    Bobby Tabimina
    Bobby Taboada
    Teofilo Velez
    Pacito Velez
    Jose Villasin
    John Villasin
    You can get the book through bakbakan.com and it's a very good read.

    Yours,
    Dan Anderson

    Hey Bart,

    Look a little closer, man... LOL

    Villasin, Velez & Mongcal ARE on there.

    I have been doing some research as well - where would one put Mr. Chuiten since he (for the most part) left the Villasin Balintawak group and went with Filemon Caburnay to (help) form the La Punti system...?

    FYI-

    this chart was only people who formed Balintawak groups. If they didn't form a group I don't plan on adding them. There would be way to many people to list.

    Yeah, you can't hope to list everyone who ever trained in the style!

    Listing the heads of their own groups is a good
    way to go! Otherwise there would literally be
    hundreds of people to put on the tree! That
    would be an very, very hard task!
