I'm not huge on going around posting videos to ridicule others. But, there are times when a bit of calling out is necessary in the martial arts, as there are way too many people posing as something they are not. One of the major issues that the Filipino Martial Arts suffer from is that, because there are/were so many family systems that did not get taught commercially, it is relatively easy for someone to pose as a master of some obscure family style and dupe some unsuspecting foreigner, or for that foreigner to go back to wherever they are from and claim that they have legit FMA skills, and pass that junk off to others. This video, and system, unfortunately, seems to be a good example of that. Fortunately, most who have watched the video on YT seem to recognize it for what it is, judging by the comments at least. We're talking about weapons training here, and unlike some systems that are up front about it being sport, a conservation of what was a historical practice, or simply good fun, FMA bills itself as applicable to the modern world. Soldiers, police officers, prison guards, etc. in many places have sought out FMA for their combatives training, or at least incorporate some of it in what they do. As such, in my view, there is significant potential for harm if people are being mislead. Hence my rationale for creating this thread. Caveat emptor. .
