BERNAS ESTOCADAS

TRADITIONAL FMA FROM NEGROS

Grandmaster William Bernas has created a structured and progressive system of Filipino Martial Art he calls the Bernas Estocadas, derived from various traditional arts he learned in Negros.  His most influential teacher was GM Hortencio Navales, who taught him the intricacies of the system popularly known in Bacolod as Pekiti Tirsia (Close-Quarters), which was taught openly in the Navales Arnis Clinic. Bernas Estocadas includes the following:

​The system starts off with learning how to use the stick as an impact and thrust weapon from solo baston to doble baston then progresses to espada y daga (sword and dagger) where the concept of the blade is then introduced. It then advances to just the daga (dagger) then doble daga. A separate system called Dagaso deals only with knife (attack and defense). Finally, hand to hand combat is taught whereby the same principles of espada y daga are still used. A special section for long stick is also taught in the Bernas Estocadas system.
