Tuhon Rafael Kayanan, the brother of our very own Tuhon Ricardo, will be coming to Sayoc NorCal in two weeks to teach the Tribal Weapons seminar. You will not want to miss this!
Tuhon Raf might be best known as the fight choreographer for the movie THE HUNTED (http://sayoccombatchoreography.com/), and has also recently been recognized for his collaboration with the famous blade smith, Dan Winkler (known for his work in the movie THE LAST OF THE MOHICANS), in creating the Sayoc-Winkler Tomahawk (http://sayocwinklerhawk.com/). Tuhon Raf is aslo, however, one of the most highly-recognized experts in the history, martial arts, and tribal culture of the Philippines.
Just like everything else in Sayoc Kali, we accept the lessons learned from the people who came before us and evolve with them to create a modern system with modern applications.
Tuhon Raf starts with the foundation of historical weapons and tactics of the Filipino warrior culture and then modernizes it for practical use in current times. His concept of “Shielding” stems from the use of the sword and shield but translates into all other aspects of close-range combat, including stick, knife, and even emptyhand.
