We Are a Family of Black Belts
Monday, June 11, 2007
My husband and my elder son, Raymund, got promoted recently from just plain black belts to 2nd Dan and 1st Dan black belts respectively. This is in the discipline called Garciano Kilat Serrada. Kilat Serrada is not a kind of sport but purely self-defense. Here, a student learns empty hand fighting, use of chaku, penjak, and arnis as defense, knife-fighting and how to defend yourself at gun-point.

You might be wondering why the need to learn self-defense? In this day and age, more and more people get hold-upped, injured or worst killed in the streets any time of the day. Meeting situations where they could have protected themselves end up in a bad way just because of not knowing what to do.Knowing something about self-defense can change the outcome of events and may even save lives.

One day, as Raymund grows older, he will find his own place under the sun and will be away from us. Knowing that he can protect himself gives us peace of mind.

I was the photographer during that day. I also got videos of some of their demonstrations. Here is a sample of them. I hope you enjoy watching.
