DUMOG is a grappling art in Antique, Island of Panay. Panay Island is found the Western Visayas Region of the Philippines.
As evidence of its existence a DUMOG tournament is held every year in San Pedro, Antique every Black Saturday of the Holy Week for Catholics. It usually starts in the afternoon and end in the evening. Its venue is at the beach.
This video clip features Pastor Gumban who is a practitioner of DUMOG. When he was assigned in Antique he competed in the tournament and won. In this clip he teaches dumog to CMAS(Conceptual Martial Arts Society) founders Hans Alojado and James Sy Jr. The video clip is taken by the author , part of the CMAS doucumentation team.
The author will go to Antique next year hopefully to film the Dumog tournament. The author's wife is from Bugasong, Antique and his roots is from Valderrama, Antique.

GM Lobrido gave us a Tapado Clinic to polish our strikes. He taught us how to improve our speed, strength and skill.
Tapado is a simple but effective art. It is easy to learn.
Tapado videos are available in VCD format. Tapado sticks are also available. Tapado sticks are made of "tula-tula", coffee, and "calamasi" wood. They are the ones used by Tapadistas because of their resiliency and durability.
Tapado Classes are available to all. Refer to the author's past articles on Tapado for more information.
