This month saw All-Active Martial Arts and Doce Pares Australia Director Master Marc Toussaint coordinate a training camp to Doce Pares World Headquarters in Cebu City, Philippines. A group of 18 Filipino Martial Arts students and Eskrima Doce Pares practitioners from all around Australia, including 10 All-Active Martial Arts Eskrima students, traveled to Cebu for a two-week training camp and unforgettable cultural experience.
This year's training camp to Doce Pares HQ provided the Australian Eskrimadors with the opportunity to learn Filipino Eskrima-Arnis-Kali from Doce Pares Masters, Grand Masters and Supreme Grand Master Dionisio A. Canete, at the very home of the Doce Pares Multi-Styles system of Eskrima-Kali-Arnis.
In addition to undertaking invaluable training at Doce Pares HQ in Cebu City, the Doce Pares Australia members and All-Active Martial Arts students also experienced special training at Badian Beach, sight-seeing, historical and cultural enrichment, canyoneering, traditional dining, entertainment and the most welcoming and friendly Filipino hospitality!
All participants received official recognition from Doce Pares World Headquarters for participating in the two-week training camp and presented with certificates. Three training camp members also had the opportunity to have their skills officially recognized when they successfully completed an official grading for international ranking at Doce Pares HQ. Two of our very own All-Active Martial Arts' Eskrima students were successful in achieving their International First Grade Black Belt ranking.
Master Marc Toussaint will be attending the 2019 SEA Games this November after having been invited to take part as a judge in the Arnis event category. The South East Asian Games are a biennial multi-sport event involving participants from 11 Southeast Asian countries. To be hosted by the Philippines in 2019, the SEA Games are regulated by the Southeast Asian Games Federation and supervised by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and the Olympic Council of Asia.
Master Toussaint and several of our students also plan to attend the 2020 World Eskrima Kali Arnis Federation (WEKAF) World Championships in the Philippines in July 2020, after having successfully qualified to take part in a number of events at this year’s Australian WEKAF Championships!
All-Active Martial Arts are very proud of our ongoing association with Doce Pares Australia and Doce Pares HQ in Cebu City, Philippines. As Doce Pares Australia Director, Master Marc Toussaint hopes to offer future groups the opportunity to experience the invaluable training and enriching culture of the Philippines by coordinating regular training camps to Doce Pares World Headquarters.
