    Hey Shesulsa I would love to talk a little bit about Balintawak.

    In my opinion Balintawak is one of the finest stick fighting systems on the planet. It was founded in the 1950's by Manong Venancio Bacon.
    The name of the art reflects the name of the street Balintawak where the art was originally practiced. Bacon was one of the finest Arnis practitioner's
    of his time and the system is a close in fighting stick system that is simply fantastic in my opinion. Balintawak principles and concepts have found there way
    into many a system but most notably Modern Arnis as Professor Remy Presas was also a Balintawak practitioner. Rich Parsons the instructor at this Intensive is a long
    time Modern Arnis practitioner who also learned directly from Manong Ted Buot who was Venancio Bacon's top student and the foremost Balintawak practitioner on the .
    planet during his life time. Rich carries on the Balintawak tradition by teaching this unique blend in the greater Flint, Grand Rapids area and around the United States via seminars and intensives.


    You can see some Balintawak demonstrated here at a recent Canadian semianr by one of the world's foremost instructor's Grand Master Bobby Taboada.



    Personally I enjoy Balintawak (the little I know) because of the close in fighting it provides. I am more of a medium to long range stick fighter so Balintawak takes me
    out of that comfort zone.

    This upcoming Intensive with Rich and myself will be an absolute blast!
