Welcome to the Filipino Fighting Secrets Blog! All the content on this site is written by Filipino Martial Arts Master Mustafa Gatdula. Master Gatdula is the founder of the Typhoon Philippine School of Martial Arts. Also known as “thekuntawman“, he is well-versed in many martial arts disciplines and styles, and possesses a wealth of knowledge and insight. Armed with oftentimes controversial opinions and insights in the Filipino arts, articles on the Filipino Fighting Secrets Live blog are sure to get you looking at your training and philosophy from a fresh new perspective. This blog was created to give us a platform to air rarely-heard views and share our ideas of the practice, the teaching, and the application of the martial arts. Please subscribe and bookmark this page, as we will post a combination of edited postings as well as original writings from one of the most interesting and outspoken of the modern-day warriors!
We feature articles about training, philosophy, fighting strategy, and video review. In our “Observation and Insights”, you can read commentary about a variety of topics concerning the martial arts. There are two new sections that we are adding to our blog: A video review section (look under “categories“, to your right) and books you can order from Master Gatdula. There is a ton of good, useful information that you won’t find anywhere, and they expound in greater detail much of what is contained in the articles we present.
For those interested in learning to become an FMA teacher, Master Gatdula will be offering a residential FMA Instructor Candidate program in Rizal, Philippines. This is a full-time program to train future teachers in the Filipino arts of Kuntaw and Eskrima as well as the Jow Ga Kung Fu style. For more information, please visit our Train Full-Time page.
