Young Pamana Tuhon Chris Sayoc, Sr training spear work with Guro Dan Inosanto 40 years ago. Few know that PT Sayoc was a longtime instructor of Guro Dan. Pics from the SAYOC KALI backyard were posted by the Inosanto Academy today honoring the late Pamana Tuhon’s birthday.

Lineage.
Lineage means “ a line” and Pamana Tuhon Sayoc, Sr said a Sayoc member stays in the tribe because of a line of unbroken deeds.
Time Ranking.
As we stated at our last gathering. The lineup we do is an example of Deeds not by Time. We are not training a bunch of grapes waiting to age like bottles of wine, we are training them to own the vineyards.
No one pushes you to move forward, but no one ranks you higher because of time.
Deeds.
Everyone else who was once in Sayoc, we understand some want to be known to have been part of the system at one time. It offers them pedigree to the masses.
However, make no mistake that Sayoc’s core inner circle is still IN the system. We not only have instructors who trained in the 80’s but also the 90’s - on and NEVER left. Whatever anyone did, we all have done and years upon years more.
So logically one must realize, there were those whose expiration dates of willingness came and went. More power to them. They gather in social media and reminisce about the good old days.
Sayoc continues on.
Into the future.
We make everyday better than the last.
Not just in the glory days of our memories.
So those who still fan for the old ways, think about what deeds you will accomplish tomorrow.
Or just wait for what gets posted by Sayoc Kali and tell all you once walked with them.
Gumagalang.

Developed 15 years ago and often imitated: The Sayoc - Winkler Knives RnD Hawk has cleared the way for modern hawk use. Prior to the release of SAYOC hawk material in the early 2000’s, there was no FMA hawk curriculum taught.

“ Everyday is Thanksgiving “ Pamana Tuhon Christopher Sayoc, Sr

From day one to today.
From makeshift shanks, live blade demos, baseball bat “testings”,
hundreds of days of fighting before many were chasing the “likes” —
before there was fma on tv / film in many parts of the world.
Before you propagate internet lies, know that:

Decades of Deeds define the attribution to the source.
Pamana Tuhon Sayoc, the ***original*** Tuhon and his students
fueled the title “TUHON” to have meaning and clout.

Whether you still study, or whether you don’t.
Whether you once hid in the shadows,
shined under the sama sama sun
or stood at the front of the line —
A line of field tested, battle tested, and most importantly,
legacy tested individuals.

The truth can not be tarnished -
The Art of the Blade will always shine sharp.
This is SAYOC “

SAYOC is documented to have introduced the modern headaxe into the combatives community way back in the 2000’s.
This more traditional trainer was made in 2007 by Tuhon Harley Elmore. Took it out today for this pic.

SAYOC EP – Music Release 09/13/2021

SAYOC EP – Music Release

Out of Sayoc Tribal Tactics in Los Angeles, CA, Dyn Taylor has released a new music album, SAYOC EP.

From Dyn:

“ Among its numerous benefits and advantages, perhaps Sayoc Kali’s greatest strength is that it is a living art, constantly evolving to master its environment and era.

This music serves as an homage to that precept. Its foundation utilizes the traditional instruments, beats, and tonalities of the archipelago regions of Southeast Asia, fusing and integrating them with modern sounds, current technology, emerging production techniques, and experimentation.

The result: an exploration of unique variations, developing music that augments past and present to create a new inspired form.

This is the music of One Tribe. “

From over a decade ago. Years before best selling novels, tv shows and backyard bootleg versions were in fashion. There was only one tribe doing hawk work. SAYOC!

This will be awesome

The Original SAYOC SMOKING KNIFE

05/04/2021

All you who dropped the blade -
Know that the rank you cherish was never earned.
It could not be bought.
It could not be slandered.

One man created the TUHON rank.
One Tribe made it shine.
This is why you emulate our ranks
But can never equal our deeds.

Make all your excuses.
Gather all your half truths.

The rank means nothing.
Without “SAYOC” beside it.

Between the name and the rank
is a chain of unbroken deeds.

Loyalty is difficult
It is the highest currency.
It is not for everyone.

A SAYOC Tuhon does not have a certificate.
Look at the person.
That is the rank.

There are no masters.
If there are no slaves.

In memory of Pamana Tuhon Christopher Sayoc Sr.

Hinduized / Madjapahit KAYANS arrived in the 14th century. Perhaps the first iron workers in Borneo. In the Philippines, the tribes / families of Kayan, ManKayan, Kayanan are all clustered more in the Northern region. Only the settlers of Kayangan Lake and a Datu Kayanan from the 1900’s were closer to the southern areas.
