EWO – GGM Leo Giron (Bladed Warrior – Larga Mano – FMA)

Escrima Great Grandmaster Leo Giron (with Dan Inosanto) demonstrates some concepts/techniques of his style (uploaded on 21-2-2016). The knowledge of the ‘Bladed Warrior’ was battle tested and proven in real combat.

During WW2, GGM Giron fought in the jungles of the Philippines against the Japanese.
He was a member of a group of secret commandos that were part of General Douglas McArthur’s secret force.
As a commando they formed a triangle formation, a point man and one man on each side. GGM Giron was point man. Weapons of choice were bolo knife or talonason (long knife, 36 inches long), against Japanese bayonet and katana. GGM Giron was rewarded a Bronze Star medal amongst many other citations.

GGM Leovigildo ‘Leo’ Miguel Giron’s (28/8/1911-21/5/2012 ) contributions to the Filipino Martial Arts were enormous. He was known as the father of Larga Mano in Amerika.
These are some of the Escrimadores who trained under him: Dan Inosanto, Rene Latosa, Dentoy Revillar, Richard Bustillo, Ted LucayLucay and Tony Somera (successor of GGM Giron).

EWO – Jumping Dolphins (Clearwater Beach, Florida/ USA)

This video shows some jumping dolphins, recorded at Clearwater Beach, Florida/ USA – 14/12/2015 (uploaded on 17-1-2016).
Sometimes it’s better to watch dolphins swim and jump instead of watching the quantity of bad martial arts videos. You learn as much martial arts from the dolphins as from bad martial arts videos. 😉
This includes also bad videos about Wing Chun/ Wing Tsun/ Weng Chun and Escrima/ Eskrima.
