Posted: June 15, 2015 in SWIG

Whether you call it Kali, Arnis or Escrima the Filipino Martial Arts has been adopted by International Special Forces Units, depicted in blockbuster movies and is becoming more prevalent in the civilian sector. It has withstood the test of time and is recently experiencing a renaissance through high profile ambassadors who have taken FMA away from the backyard and into the limelight.

In this historical interview three of its premiere global ambassadors meet for the first time to discuss the current state of FMA. The interview, conducted by GN was an impromptu gathering that took place in Atlanta, Georgia during BladeShow 2015 and has become the platform to launch future collaborations between Jared Wihongi of Pekiti Tirsia, Ray Dionaldo of FCS and Doug Marcaida of Marcaida Kali.
