An awesome seminar by GM Tom Dy Tang. He is currently the torch bearer of Kalis Ilustrisimo, was GM Tony Diego’s longest student and logged the most training time in the Ilustrisimo art. Tom was meticulously trained by Mang Tony to be his successor, upon his passing. Tom currently teaches a small private group in Vancouver B.C.

The sword-fighting method of famed Eskrimador Grand Master Antonio “Tatang”
Ilustrisimo has long been regarded as one of the most efficient and effective systems of Eskrima. Its principles can be applied at any fighting range, with any weapon and empty hands. Grand Master Ilustrisimo’s successor, Master Tony Diego, shared the art with the world through his group, Kalis Ilustrisimo Repeticion Orihinal (KIRO), and named his student and assistant Arnold Narzo KIRO’s Chief Instructor.
Coach Arnold has extensively trained with Master Tony Diego, the other KI seniors, and
Grand Master Ilustrisimo himself, and has experience in both tournament fighting and live blade encounters. He will be sharing his knowledge in a seminar/workshop in Boracay this coming May 18-21, 2016. He will be assisted by Doran Sordo, Senior Instructor of Bakbakan Combat Arts, International who has trained extensively under Master Christopher Ricketts and Master Tony Diego, and is at present furthering his Eskrima training under Coach Arnold.
Morning sessions (10am-12noon) will be at The Vessel, Mandala Spa and Villas – Sitio Angol, Boracay Island
Afternoon sessions (3pm-5pm) will be at the beachfront of Red Pirates – Sitio Angol, Boracay Island
All interested parties are welcome regardless of skill level or experience in Eskrima. Please bring your own training and safety gear (training swords and daggers, hand, arm, and eye protection)
