NEW UPDATES! :la:

I found an interview with Jovelyn Minosa,the co-founder and coach of the Bagong Katipunan about Lahuka. I found out that it was her new training style of martial arts NOT a new form of martial arts. (I.failed.:icongangsterfaceplz:)

For the whole interview, Here is the link:
[link]



DS: Describe Lahuka to people who are unfamiliar with it.

JM: Lahuka is a three Cebuano word combination, directly translated into English, meaning HEART; BODY AND SOUL: LAwas- the Body, it is the body who train.
HUna-huna - the Mind, Soul.. who understand the movements of the body,
KAsing-kasing - The heart.. success means doing things by the the HEART
and so is LAHUKA - HEART; BODY AND SOUL

DS: Is Lahuka your original concept? Is it an part of FMA?

JM: Lahuka was my idea alone.. the word Lahuka ( which means HEART, BODY AND SOUL) reflects from my own way of teaching. Emphasizing more empathy than sympathy.. A good teacher must see what a student has to learn, how to understand his body coordination, what the hearts desires and how the mind and soul reacts and comprehend. Empathy is needed because FMA is a very complex art, if you just teach them techniques, techniques and more techniques, so the students are not doing FMA they are just doing Techniques they don't even understand. Lahuka is part of FMA, because I had learn from Doce Pares.




Thanks to :icontojix: for telling me about Silat Melayu and Katipunan :)

The movements on these sketches resembles more on Silat Melayu, according to him. I got curious and I found this video: [link] It's so pretty, I want to learn this :iconmegustabishieplz:



Katipunan stems from the word pagtitipon meaning to gather, and the word itself Katipunan means a gathering. The group you speak of like many groups here in the Philippines, is inspired from the KKK- Kataas taasang, Kagalang galangang, Katipunan ng mga anak ng bayan: Meaning a High Gathering of the most Noble sons of the Nation, this was the name of the secret society founded by the Hero Andres Bonfacio, which was composed of patriot Filipinos pushing for independence from Spain through an armed revolution.

here's the link to their website: www.bagongkatipunan.de (it's in German)

and the translated version (via Google) about their association:


Establishing the Bagong Katipunan

"Bagong" is a word from the Filipino language Tagalog, meaning "new". Katipunan means something like secret society, association, or meeting. In the present context Bagong Katipunan is an organization for the promotion and dissemination originating from the Philippines martial arts.

He embodies a tribute to the heroes of Philippine history, which in previous centuries fought against the Spanish colonial power in their homes and lost their lives for independence.

The association is evident from the sport arnis group in Moers, for some time in the first Trained Shaolin Kempo Club Moers eV. To become independent and to promote Philippine culture and art of self-defense and to preserve, the founders decided to start his own club that focuses on the purpose. The foundation was then in fact take place in advance of a seminar in Copenhagen.



hope this helps, I'll add more info next time :iconcryingrainbowsplz:
If you have more information about this or the infos here needs to be change, please let me know. I would gladly accept it :D

This movements here resembles more Silat Melayu's armed component than Escrima, since it makes use of the Kampilan w/c employs different tactics. In Arnis, Eskrima, or Kali whatever it is called this days uses much shorter weapons like the Kalis, Balaraw, and the Ginunting and employs economical but circular movements.
