This system originated in central Philippines. It is based on the double blade and is highly effective in close range combat with or without weapons. Lapu-Lapu is distinguished by close range trapping, rapid striking and cutting through the utilization of all parts of the weapon ( tip, body and butt ) in each attacking movement or technique.
This system was taught to family members only and was handed down from father to son for four generations. It has only recently been introduced to the general public by the latest successor of the art, Carlito Bonjoc Jr.
