The FMA Informative representative while in the Philippines got to meet once again and talk with Leopoldo C. Lasaleta Jr. the Training Director and Joseph Edgar R. Roquid the Assistant Training Director of Sayoc Fighting International of the Philippines. The Sayoc Fighting group in the Philippines started in 2004; Grandmaster Baltazar Bo Zook Sayoc formally organized the group in the Philippines in 2006. However unfortunately Grandmaster Sayoc passed away in 2007, before establishing a Head Instructor in the Philippines. Sayoc Fighting International when accepting a student holds nothing back, but teaches all aspects of the art. In doing so they build strength, coordination of the body, endurance, self-confidence, and self-awareness. The Sayoc Fighting International does not compete in tournaments for Sports competition it is not taught in the art. In 2012 the Group changed its name to respect and avoid confrontation with the group in the United States which was inherited by Tuhon Chris Sayoc one of the sons of Grandmaster Balthazar Bo Sayoc. The group is called Sayoc Fighting International and Leopoldo C. Lasaleta Jr. is the Senior Guro of the group.Note: The Sayoc Fighting International holds a Sama Sama so their students can see and participate in other systems. This is so the student can learn some of the basic concepts and principles of other styles and have knowledge of other systems of the martial arts.

Concepts and Principles
Foundation Understanding the foundation is important and a bases for techniques. The V footwork is a basic movement making it easy to move to the left or right of an attacking opponent. If the opponent is very aggres-sive then the use of the diamond footwork is used. Also there is a reverse triangle for the offensive counter attack. Which allows the practitioner too defend and then counter attack immediately. In training it is taught that the opponent using one attack the practitioner will use two or three counter attacks. A basic concept is using the side to side movement is when the practitioner is not ready for the attack, as if being attacked in the street
The Sayoc Fighting International in the Philippines in teaching the basic concept and principle in knife fighting it is designed for both defense and offense; in defense they have the pakal a reverse grip and for the offense usually taught, they use the pasaksak a forward grip. In using the blade one must not extend themselves, there is believed a circle which is considered the safe world, and then there is the extended world (outside of the safe word, extending ones self). So when using the blade one wants to stay within the safe world for extending into the extended world one is vulnerable to the opponent.
Knife vs KnifeAttacker stabs, receiver catch the attack with a pakal grip, he then waits for the punch and catch it with his left and will execute a cross /gunting lock. Then stabs the attacker on the heart.
In teaching Arnis is what one would call an energy art, which one counters using the energy of the oppo-nent, and using the opponents energy against them, they believe in waiting for the opponents energy, once the opponent has extended his energy the practitioner can counter, disarm and takedown the opponent. In Arnis the training is to absorb the opponents baston and then redirect it this extends the opponents energy and makes it less difficult for counter attack or disarming.
Stick vs StickAttacker will hit the head. Receiver will execute overhead block/pinayong, angle right as he taps the Arnis hand and elbow strike on the face, He the disarms and hit attacker on the face and nape.
In most martial arts the students are taught to be aggressive, however in Sayoc Philippines it is taught to be defensive. Overall in encountering an opponent the basic idea is to go with the flow, a natural flow to the situation of the encounter working the opponent to their disadvantage. Do not extend yourself, or make unnecessary movements. Be to the point in your counters. Sayoc Fighting International when accepting a student holds nothing back, but teaches all aspects of the art. In doing so they build strength, coordination of the body, endurance, self-confidence, and self-awareness. Just this last year the Sayoc Fighting International has added some Kickboxing and Karate to strengthen the legs, which still conforms to the ideology as set forth from Grandmaster Baltazar Bo Zook before his passing in 2007. It was told by the Grandmaster that it was permitted to get some basic techniques from other styles and incorporate them into the system to make it stronger
Mano Mano (Empty Hand)
Mano Mano 1This is one of our mano mano techniques, whereby the attacker makes a right and left cross. The receiver responds by tapping and holding the first punch with his left and his right strikes the eye area of the attacker, he then taps and hold the second punch and lock the arms by executing cross /gunting lock. The moment the left arm is hyper extended, receiver releases it and hits the attacker with a right elbow on the jaw and once his down, execute a stomping kick on the face.
Mano Mano 2In this second technique, attacker will kick and back fist the receiver. the latter will first execute friction tap against the kick and will catch the back fist by raising the arms and waiting for the energy of the attack, he then yank back and elbow attackers face and execute side kick to brake ribs.
Empty vs KnifeAttacker will execute a knife slash on the neck. Receiver will track blade hand and at the same time striking the eye area. He then controls blade hand and wait for the attacker to punch. He then blocks the punch with his right hand and cut the left bicep of attacker and goes for a stab.
