Cinco Terros Baguio
Here's a video I put together for a martial arts style I practice, Cinco Teros Baguio.
Cinco Teros (cincoteros.com) is a unique style of Arnis / Kali / Eskrima, built around utilizing the five basic strikes that naturally occur when swinging a stick or bladed weapon. Our particular style of Cinco Teros is named after the city of Baguio, where it is taught by our master teacher and founder Rolando Hong. Cinco Teros Baguio is his family art that originated in the Pangasinan region of the Philippines. Its techniques were secretly handed down only through generations of Master Hong’s family. Now Cinco Teros Baguio Arnis/Silat is taking root in the United States, where it is taught in Stamford, Connecticut by Guro Gene Batan.
Gene’s childhood in the Philippines is marked by practice of various arts, including Cinco Teros Arnis. He is personally trained by his friend, founder and master teacher Rolando Hong. Gene returns to Baguio yearly to re-certify and reconnect with this family art.
Gene’s current practice in Aikido, Silat, Karate, Iaido and brief experience in Kendo provides a widened perspective of the martial application of the arts, especially as it pertains to Arnis, Kali, Eskrima.
