"The Amarra and the Pani-il in the Antaw"
Video and explanation by Magtutudlo Ramon Rubia
of Eskrima Combatives FMA
The movements (Amarra, Pani-il, Antaw) are influenced by San Miguel Eskrima, NMODE—DSG, De Campo 1-2-3 Orihinal Eskrima, Pakusog Bunal (Doring Saavedra Method "Pangtiwas") Single Stick. The fusion of their strategies becomes the Eskrima Combatives FMA. Much can be said about the San Miguel. If taught in the content of a form without meaning (memorizing sequence of movements—strike patterns and footwork, etc..), then it is just that - a form with no function. San Miguel is not just a form, it is a self-expression of a fighting strategy based on "depensa seguidas/retirada." Once you get this idea, form follows function. The San Miguel of Old, or, the Old Doce Pares is just that - a hearsay. The unraveling of the applications were never explained. It's that simple.
