"The [Inay(an)] System (of Eskrima) is Complete" ~ Mangisursuro Inay 1944-2000


Hey Dad

Happy Father's Day! Thought you might like to know Jena and Robert's son, your grandson, is doing great. He's a strong boy and in a few years he will be training in the family art. Emmie, your granddaughter, has been training for ten years now and turning into a fine eskrimador.

What If?

This last week has been a busy one, and yet not busy in the ways I wanted them to be in the end of the week. Starting with a fantastic show and tell a-la-seminar for SigEp at Stanford, the week progressed nicely. Until Thursday when suddenly I had somehow injured my neck and could barely move without immobilizing pain.

Traditional Martial Arts Ineffective?

There is a lot of information out on the Internet as well as in print regarding the supremacy of one art or method of training over another. So much in fact it is hard to know what is right, what is misinformation and what is disinformation. Though the question of which style is better is an old debate in the Martial Arts community, there is some credence to the statement that Traditional Martial Arts’ approach is ineffective. So what is the best art to train in? Karate, Kung Fu, Eskrima, or some other style? And, if one style or way is better, why is it better?

Bridging the gap between the glass box and the real world.

The one thing that sets Inayan apart from other martial arts is that its curriculum develops real self-defense skills. Let me clarify. What I am talking about goes beyond merely performing techniques, repeating static drills, and memorizing forms. Successful self-defense requires the development of reaction time, fluid movement, adaptability, and the ability to perform under stress.
