Sir Ludwig van Ditten is up for certification this coming Monday, November 21 at 6:30am Philippine time.

Sir Ludwig has been training in De Campo since September last year when he signed up to our online course at decampo123.org/learn123

If anyone is interested with certification, you should check decampo123.org/certification and you’ll find that we have a very detailed process on how to go about it. If you also notice in the past certification events, all of our candidates have the same pattern in terms of the amount of training wherein on the average, training with us in the nuances of De Campo took months up to several years before they get considered for certification.

Please also consider certification ONLY if you are planning to teach, as our main goal is “to preserve the martial art of Jose Caballero, that is De Campo 123 Original”. Certification to us is not about ranks, it’s all about being able to teach and spread the art.

In the case of Sir Ludwig, he has been a consistent practitioner for a year now and has been training on a weekly basis with Maestro and has been attending group zoom sessions with fellow practitioners as well as training with Master Jomalin during his Saturday sessions. This makes it enough for him to grasp and fully understand the core and deeper concepts of the art.

Let’s support him this coming Monday as he gets tested in the presence of other certified Magtutudlos and fellow practitioners of De Campo.

Hayang Kulob strikes against a Coconut

Maestro tested a rattan and a magkuno stick against a coconut. The rattan is 0.7 inch in diameter while the magkuno is exactly 1 inch in diameter. The rattan is thinner and flexible than the regular ones. The Magkuno is an ironwood that is almost as heavy and durable as Kamagong. They are almost the same length at 27 and 28 inches, the rattan 1 inch longer.

Maestro tested the magkuno with a seemingly weak half-strike from serrada which is one of De Campo’s non-telegraphic strikes delivered usually to the weapon hand or as follow up strike to secondary targets such as the head, chest, or leg. The result was a solid strong impact that broke the coconut in one strike.

Then the rattan was tested using a technique we call “device” from abierta. It took two blows before the coconut cracked and slightly opened.

We didn’t test the obvious generic strikes that everyone expects (full downward strikes, x strikes, caveman strikes, etc) because we want to show the effectiveness of a properly placed strike on a target using these seemingly fancy weak strikes that relies on a concept we use in De Campo we call “Hayang Kulob”.

In conclusion, speed and non-telegraphic striking combined with enough power to break the target can give you a big advantage over a power wielding telegraphing opponent. These things can be learned quite easily through understanding the concept of Hayang Kulob first then training in the original De Campo 123 curriculum. You can find this curriculum online at decampo123.org/learn123 which is the exact original curriculum developed, taught, and trained by our founder, the undefeated stick fighter of his time, Grandmaster Jose Caballero. One of his training regimen includes breaking coconuts during his ensayo. Go signup today, you won’t regret getting the course.

The coconut nut btw is a giant nut 🙂

Sir William Shin Duguil will be testing for Magtutudlo this coming Saturday, November 5th, 7am Philippine time.

He has been training in De Campo a little over 2 years now (since 2020) and has dabbled into the finer points and nuances of the original. He is not new in De Campo as he also trained a long time ago from another direct student of Jose Caballero.

He is now fully committed with the original and aims to promote the art further in the U.S. where he is located.

If you have signed up to the full course at decampo123.org/learn123, and is interested to see him test as Magtutudlo, just message us and we will you give the zoom link.

Pugay!

This large tomb seen in the picture is a common grave where the remains of Jose Caballero was transferred because the family back then can’t keep up with the maintenance cost of the cemetery. Yes it is unfortunate for us who regard him as the legendary eskrimador that he was. But it is what it is. Today, we now have an organization and a community who continues to support the Caballero family and we are getting stronger as we look forward to De Campo’s 100th year founding in 2025.

All Souls Day is near and it is the day we commemorate our dead. Not just the dead but those who passed away within the Catholic faith. GM Jose is one with strong faith in God. We celebrate his life and death this coming November 2. If you want to honor him, you can light 7 candles for him as we did when we visited his tomb in Ozamiz.

All Soul’s Day is called Kalag Kalag in Cebuano. Today we offer 50% off on all our online courses. Visit decampo123.org/learn123 and use the code KALAGKALAG when signing up and checking out. This code expires before the week ends.
