    The Atillos have direct lineage. Vincente Atillo was one of the founding members of Balintawak with Bacon. Ising Atillo emphasizes the lineage through Bacon and his father Vicente, to the Saavedras, but that is another issue. The claim to Balintawak is legit and they have their own group. I'd say you'd fit them in just like you did the others. Mark Mikita is currently a student of Ising's here in the US. There are others in Cebu. They could fit under the Atillo branch.

    Are you saying that Vincente was a student of Bacon and Ising a student of Vincente?

    Tim,

    I believe that Ising was really young at the time Balintawak was created, maybe early teens. From what I have heard him and others say, he did train with Bacon. In what capacity compared to with his father? I don't know. It would probably be safe to list him under his father, but it could go either way.

    Toasty supplied me with a link to balintawakworld.com which is a really good site (thanks again for that toasty). Ive asked my instructor for some video clips in regards to the 12 basics and the 12 dynamics but seems to be taking his time in getting me these. Does anyone know if these are on the internet somewhere???? or if not where else I could get them???

    The guy I know in Toronto Canada is Robert Cinco he is one of Joe Go's student who is now teaching Tat Kun Tou. Tat Kun Tou is the empty hand version of balintawak mix with kung fu. Joe Go was one of Bacon's elite student but was a low profile type. Only few even know how good he was and where was he rank history. I have the opportunity to train with him in late 1990 and early 1991 before he died in june of that year. He was teaching his own version of stick fighting named PALAKABANATE still a Balintawak based.

    I know some names who were in Joe Go's generation like Jose Villasin,Ted Buot , Teofilo Velez and Tinong Ybanez. Those who were ahead considered as the first generation were the likes of Delfin Lopez, Timor Maranga,Edwardo Baculi,Vicente Atillo and Arnulfo Moncal . Joe Go was a Balintawak low profile name only few know who and how good he was. You can ask Manong Ted Buot one of his very close friend he can tell you more about Joe Go.

    A sample of Robert's practice from his Toronto school. While his lineage is primarily from JoGo, Robert also trained with Sergio Arcel and Ramon "Monie" Valez of the Teovel's group.
