LATEST | SPORTS UPDATE: The arnis community in the country and all over the world has lost one of its strongest pillars and staunchest supporters with the passing of Cebuano martial arts legend Supreme Grandmaster (SGM) Dionisio “Diony” Cañete on Sunday evening, August 22, 2021. He was 82.

Diony’s son, Philippine Eskrima Kali Arnis Federation (PEKAF) Executive Vice President Master Gerald Cañete, confirmed the sad news that sparked an outpouring of grief and love for the highly revered eskrima great.

In 1975 at the age of 28, SGM Diony established the Cebu Eskrima Association that banded all major clubs and top arnisadors in this side of the archipelago together for the first time. In effect, he sort of “civilized” the fighting-oriented masters and curbed them to learn to co-exist for the sake of the ingenious Filipino martial arts.

When he was elected officer of Doce Pares in 1960, rules on the acceptance of students and membership was liberalized. At that time, they also started to promote and develop arnis as a wholesome spectator’s sporting event.

Among his countless achievements, SGM Diony spearheaded the first ever National Arnis Open Championship in 1979 at the Cebu Coliseum and the 1st National USA Eskrima Kali Arnis Championsips in 1988 in San Jose, California.

On August 11-13, 1989, SGM Diony organized the 1st World Eksrima Kali Arnis Championship. If was during this tournament that the World Eskrima Kali Arnis Federation (WEKAF) was born. He served as WEKAF president for a long time and sits as its chairman emeritus until his death.

Under the dynamic stewardship of SGM Diony, Doce Pares has spread on both hemispheres of the globe with over 50 member countries in five continents. He stamped the legacy of Doce Pares as the ‘Gold’ standard of FMA.

On this day!

On August 13, 1898, the beleaguered Spaniards inside Intramuros surrendered to the American troops in a mock battle. It ended the 333-year Spanish colonization of the Philippines and began the 48 years of U.S. occupation. This event was conducted to save Spain from embarrassment by surrendering to the Americans instead of their former colonial subjects.

Secret negotiations between Major General Elwell Otis and Governor-General Fermin Jaudenes were facilitated by Belgian Consul Edouard Andre as early as August 9. The two commanders agreed to the details of the "battle" and the exclusion of the Filipinos in the event by prohibiting their march to Intramuros. On August 13, the mock battle started with a brief naval bombardment of the Fort San Antonio Abad (now the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas complex) by the U.S. Asiatic Squadron. It was followed by the capture of that fort by the Americans and their march in the southern and eastern flanks of Intramuros. The Filipino forces, led by Generals Gregorio del Pilar, Pio del Pilar, Mariano Noriel, and Artemio Ricarte (who were unaware of the secret deal), tried their best to join the fray by capturing the suburbs (arrabales) of Manila; however, they were blocked by the Americans to go to Intramuros as planned. After a brief firefight, the Spaniards surrendered to the U.S. troops, and the capitulation was signed inside the Casas Consistoriales (also known as the Ayuntamiento).

The mock battle started the tense relations between the Filipino and American military commanders as the former felt that they were deceived, thus becoming a threat to their independence. Subsequent events such as the signing of the Treaty of Paris in December 1898 will lead to the Filipino-American War in February 1899.

Our Southeast Asian ancestors, culture, and colorful style as depicted in various centuries-old manuscripts.

🇧🇳🇰🇭🇮🇩🇱🇦🇲🇾🇲🇲🇵🇭🇸🇬🇹🇭🇻🇳

Boxer Codex is a late 16th-century manuscript in Spanish about the customs and ways of life of various peoples in the present-day Southeast and East Asia regions, now a property of The Lilly Library, Indiana University. Lifted from here are the representative illustrations of Brunei (a man from Brunei), Cambodia (a man from "Tampochia," as spelled in the codex), Indonesia (a Maluku noble lady), Malaysia (a man from "Temquigui," which Prof. Charles Robert Boxer, the previous owner of the codex, theorized to be the present-day Pulau Tinggi, off the coast of Malay Peninsula), the Philippines (a Visayan noble lady), Thailand (a man from Siam, the old name of Thailand), and Vietnam (a Giao Chi lady in present-day Hanoi).

The illustrations for Myanmar (a Burmese lady) and Singapore (a Malay lady) are from Códice Casanatense, also a 16th-century manuscript in Portuguese about Southeast and South Asia, now part of the collection of the Biblioteca Casanatense in Rome.

Designated for Laos is the illustration of Phralak, the Lao (and also Thai) name of Lakshmana, brother of Rama, in the Lao version of the epic Ramayana (Phra Lak Phra Ram in the Lao language). It is from a page in a 19th-century Thai manuscript of the epic found in the British Library Digital Collection (see Or.14229, f. 29).

Happy ASEAN Day!

Mabuhay!

The National Quincentennial Committee (NQC) joins the academics in the discipline of History in mourning the demise of Philippine historian John Alan "Mang Jack" Larkin, one of the champions of local history in the Philippines. He died on his 85th birthday on 29 July 2021 in the U.S.

His work, The Pampangans: Colonial Society in a Philippine Province (1972), serves as a model of scholarly-written local history in the country. It was published at the time that "any historical study of a Philippine province was next to impossible and certainly a waste of a graduate student's time," according to a review of the book by Michael Paul Onorato (1976). Filipino historian Leslie Bauzon recognized Larkin's work, being a pioneer postwar Philippine history study on local history, "virtually a terra incognita in Philippine historical scholarship."

Larkin was also among the scholars in the past century who helped developed Philippine history from the lens and voice of a Filipino. The NQC, for example, emphasizes the active role of our ancestors in influencing the fate, destiny and destination of the first circumnavigation of the world 500 years ago.
