Kamagong, New Pinoy Anime
It is not only Sepak Takraw that we should be waiting to be aired in whatever medium possible because there are actually two new Pinoy Anime. Sinag Animation is also working on Kamagong. It is based on Carlo J. Caparas' original comics character and 1986 movie of the same title.
Kamagong Pinoy AnimeIf I remember correctly the Kamagong Movie stars Lito Lapit and I had the opportunity to watch it. The reason why I watched it is because it is indeed one of the Martial Arts of the country which deserves to be known by everyone.
Kamagong Movie starring Lito Lapit
With this new Pinoy anime, I would definitely want to see it and will support it all the way. Look at all the teaser arts below and you will surely be excited to watch the story and what will happen to BAGTAS, our main protagonist.
Kamagong - Arnis Weapon of ChoiceIf you could own any weapon for self-defense, a powerful bludgeoning weapon good enough for even the inevitable Zombie Apocalypse, choose the Kamagong (an ironwood species) fighting stick over even bladed weapons. Carrying a bladed weapon on your person is a crime in the Philippines. But a kamagong stick will save you in a brawl against muggers and other criminals if you know how to use it for self defense purposes. It is extremely dense and hard enough to fend off attackers and maim them so you can escape with your life.
Really cool right? Anyway, let us watch the official theme song for Kamagong Pinoy Anime - AKO'Y MAGWAWAGI by TEDDY CORPUZ.
What is Arnis?
Arnis, also known as Kali or Eskrima, is the national sport and martial art of the Philippines. The three are roughly interchangeable umbrella terms for the traditional martial arts of the Philippines ("Filipino Martial Arts", or FMA) that emphasize weapon-based fighting with sticks, knives, bladed weapons, and various improvised weapons as well as "open hand" or techniques without weapons. It is also known as Estoque (Spanish for rapier), Estocada (Spanish for thrust or stab) and Garrote (Spanish for club). In Luzon it may go by the name of Arnis de Mano. – Wikepedia
