Here's what I posted: in the main forum:
Try Filipino Martial Arts of Kali, Escrima and Arnis....what we know as Western Boxing was really influenced by Filipino Boxing in the early 1900s. The pre-1900s boxing was like those old British Boxing type.
Please see Dan Inosanto, the legendary teacher and practitioner of Jeet Kune Do (Bruce Lee's only student who was certified in his Jun Fan Jeet Kune Do, The Tao of Jeet Kune Do and then some).
He is also a "learned" martial artist to have have trained with at least 30 Filipino's Bladed arts, boxing, wrestling....and with Muay Thai (under Master Chai Sirusite), have his own MaPhilIndo Silat (revival of the Majapahit Empire arts of Malaysian, FIlipino and Indonesian indigenious arts)..
Notice the fluidity of the Filipino Boxing Arts that influenced the Western Boxing....
As you guys know the movie Blade, Bourne Identity...etc...etc...etc. was choreographed by Jeff Imada (author of the Balisong Manual and a student of Guro Dan Inosanto)
