Pulahan-Derobio Eskrima

This expression of Eskrima as founded by Senior Master Chaz Siangco and the Siangco Collective is a Evade-Counter – Strike/Block with equal or greater force.

Pulahan: literally translated “those wearing red”, we pay homage to these warriors not for their political and religious beliefs or fanatical views but to hold on to the virtues of this warrior sect of never bowing down, to never submit, to stand true to our philosophies as warriors and purveyors of the Filipino Combat Arts. We want to honor their devout faith in their beliefs, their warrior spiri

Forefinger Monkey Grab "anchor". Over the years I have heard people call the Derobio stick counters Chi Na with sticks, Ninjitsu, Garote Dumog, etc. In my brain I only know it as Derobio. When we learned from GGM Pedoy he did not name the techniques, it was only "do it like this". Yes, we had the counters numerated, but the individual techniques were not named. I hope our supporters like and appreciate these posts, I try to be informative without giving away the store. My concern is people learn the courters 1/2 way and when they do not work for them, they think they do not work. Sorry but no, the problem is if you learn 1/2 way it may fail because you are missing critical elements. And that is why if you want to know this system of locks you must find those that know them. We appreciate all of the support on this page. But for those that have been invited but are not following or have not liked the page please do so. Currently we have 641 likes and 697 followers, let's see if we can get those numbers up to 1K by the years end. Aloha, Mahalo and long live Pedoy Style Derobio Escrima. 🤙🐎🐎🐎🤙

Take-em Down: An important element of the Derobio counters is to drive (corkscrew) your opponent down to his knees. This prevents the opponent from getting his feet under him, I call "disrupting the power line." In some arts they tend to drive the opponent down to a horizontal position on the ground. In the Derobio counters this is not done, and you ask why. Simple if you and your opponent are both on the ground it is difficult for you to defend if others attack you (his compares). It is the same with disarming a weapon, some art will let it fly, in Derobio the opponent's weapon is held onto and used against the opponent. Also, if his weapon flies his compares can pick it up and you are right back where you started from, just with a different person. Derobio is NOT a sport, it never has been and never will be.

GGM Pedoy Mano vs Daga. Watching the master move when it was mano vs daga was like watching a ballet dancer. He used to tell us "You are the bait", and the attacker is the greedy monkey reaching for the fruit. Let him come to you and make him reach out "over commit" to an attack then react accordingly. IMO it takes practical experience "or in today's world good training" and nerves of steel to do this. Patience and calmness are the key, b-cuz the attacker is totally hyped up. 🐎🐎🐎
