Also known as Dirty Boxing, Pinoy Boxing, Cadena de Mano, or Panantukan, Filipino Boxing is a fighting system aimed at maximum efficiency, uses the whole body and consists of upper and lower body striking techniques such as punches, elbows, shoulder strikes, low-line kicks and knee strikes to the legs, shins, and groin.
Filipino Boxing is not a sport, but rather a street-oriented fighting system. The techniques have not been adapted for safety or conformance to a set of rules for competition, thus it has a reputation as “dirty street fighting”.
Filipino Boxing has a particular style of groundwork which consists of breaking the opponent’s balance (body manipulation), takedowns, bars, and controlling techniques on the ground. The constant changes in the angle and level of the attack are another technical aspect of Filipino Boxing. Our particular program incorporates specific concepts from Muay Thai including clinch work, round-kicks, footwork and more.
It is especially attractive due to its comprehensive training concepts, efficiency, speed, dynamics, timing, precision, and its typical flow of action. The training curriculum contains techniques, drills, combinations, kicks, take downs, locks, and sparring.
