Here’s a clip of my instructor/founder, Shihan Rico Acosta, and me demonstrating some Doblete Rapelon twirling.
Doblete Rapelon is one of the major styles taught in our Filipino Martial Arts curriculum. It was created by the late Grandmaster Jose Mena.
Doblete Rapellon emphasizes non-stop attacks and counter attacks combined with enganyos or “fakes” to bait your opponent.
Many think twirling is useless and/or can even get you in trouble in a fight. But there are many purposes to twirling and when used the right way can not only confuse your opponent but end a fight quickly.
