To be able to eat, sleep, train for a time is probably every ardent martial artist’s dream. This is the second time I joined a mini Filipino martial arts training camp like this. Back in January 2015, some of my teammates and I had a first taste of a 3-day Balintawak Eskrima Training… And we’ve been even hungrier ever since. This time around, we came back with two more Eskrima devoted teammates so they can also experience it.
Day 1 was action-packed. We started with the usual sightseeing in Cebu City, marveling at the Magellan’s Cross, Santo Niño Church and Fort San Pedro. A little trivia: Fort San Pedro is where GM Anciong Bacon used to train his Balintawak Eskrima students.
