Hollan: The First Certified De Campo Instructor in China

Here's a freeflow ensayo video of Hollan (Zhong Hounan) showcasing his De Campo 1-2-3 Original. Hollan has recently earned the title of Magtutudlo after passing the mandatory Instructor Level Examination. His journey from online training to intensive face-to-face sessions with Maestro Paolo has culminated in this well-deserved promotion.

In this video, you'll see Hollan demonstrate the techniques and combinations that highlight his expertise and dedication to De Campo. His proficiency and commitment have not only earned him the Magtutudlo title but also positioned him to guide and promote students to various levels.

We are proud of Hollan's achievement and look forward to seeing him and his colleague Johnny (Chen Wei), the official Study Group Leader in Guangzhou, work together to spread De Campo across mainland China.

Congratulations once again to Hollan for his remarkable accomplishment!

Pugay!

Maestro Paolo demonstrates De Campo techniques, including our signature footwork, Paspas and Sagadsad, and executes some sequences from our Specialization lessons.

Watch as he combines all 7 patterns of striking randomly into 5-pattern combos at a time, showing students how to do the "Ensayo" or training solo using De Campo.

In the spirit of transparency, you may notice the backdrop features the De Campo logo with both the flags of the Philippines and China. Given today is Philippine Independence Day, we want to clarify that this setup is purely coincidental and not a political statement. Our focus remains on sharing and spreading the art of De Campo across borders.

The backdrop is part of our preparation for the launch of a new De Campo branch in China. Maestro Paolo is currently in China training dedicated students to become instructors, expanding our reach and ensuring the legacy of De Campo continues to grow.

In honor of Independence Day, we are still offering a special sale! Use code "kalayaan" to get a discount on our full course. This code applies only to the full course and not individual courses (Elementary, High School, and College).

However, if you purchase any individual course, you will receive 6 free 1-hour Zoom sessions with one of our Instructors. For those who opt for the full course, you will not only receive the discount but also gain access to our exclusive Facebook group, where you can join our weekly Zoom sessions.

Decampo 1-2-3 Original Training in China!

It's been a productive two weeks so far, training two dedicated and determined students here in China in the art of Decampo 1-2-3 Original. In this video, we're focusing on mastering distance management, target striking, and positional awareness. The goal is to teach them how to hit the target effectively and then skillfully move out of range.

Additionally, Maestro Paolo incorporated a unique training method where one foot is fixed as a handicap, forcing students to solve the problem of positioning in range during the strike and then out of range after the strike without adding unnecessary movements. They switch between the left and right foot as the rooted one, moving clockwise or counterclockwise while being fed a target. This method helps them learn how to maintain balance and precision under constrained conditions.

If you want to learn Decampo, you can start by signing up for our online course at decampo123.org/learn123. If you want to host us in your country, just contact this page so we can discuss an arrangement.

In this video, Maestro Paolo is training a student in China, teaching the rotation drill using a flexible cloth. Instead of the usual arnis stick, the cloth helps illustrate how the weapon moves in a circular motion, creating momentum with each rotation. This technique reduces the need for exertion, as the momentum allows the stick to rotate on its own.

This rotation technique, commonly called redonda or redondo y redonda in Filipino Martial Arts, emphasizes fluidity and efficiency. Interestingly, the term differs based on gender in the original context—redondo for men and redonda for women—but we use both interchangeably. In De Campo, however, our founder Jose Caballero referred to this technique as "device" or "devices" for multiple rotations.

For those interested in delving deeper, we’re offering a special sale on our full course at decampo123.org/learn123. Use the code DEVICE to get a 50% discount, valid until the first week of June. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to enhance your skills!

Today, we remember the life and legacy of Manuel "Mawe" Caballero, born on April 23, 1953, and who passed away on this day, April 30, 2017, seven years ago.

GM Mawe dedicated his life to preserving and passing on the martial art of his father, Jose Caballero. He learned De Campo at a young age and later taught the art to his son Jomalin Caballero and his nephew Joselito Liawao, who trained with their grandfather since they lived in the same area.

In the first picture, a young Mawe is recognized on stage for his school achievements, likely in the 1960s. The second photo shows GM Mawe as an adult with his nephew, Joselito, and his sister, Edilberta (Joselito's mother). These images highlight GM Mawe's strong family ties and his commitment to preserving his father's legacy. Sadly, Joselito passed away before his parents and uncle, making it challenging to preserve the family legacy.

We're grateful to have Maestro Paolo supporting the Caballero family and continuing to pass on the knowledge and techniques of De Campo today. As we honor GM Mawe's memory, we invite you to learn more about this traditional martial art and its roots.

Our sale continues in honor of GM Mawe's legacy, offering you 50% off our online course using code Manuel.

Visit decampo123.org/learn123 to learn more and take advantage of this special offer.

Let us continue GM Mawe's work and keep the Caballero legacy alive!

👏

First of all, R.I.P. GM Mawe. I'm very happy though, that we can still experience his legacy through Master Jomalin Caballero and Maestro Paolo Pagaling. Aside from that, I hope that people realize that this course at 50% of its original cost is an insanely low price. The support that is offered with this course is sublime. It even starts with a FREE weekly Zoom session, for folks that only bought the Elementary part of the course. If you buy the full course there are 5 FREE weekly Zoom sessions that you can join! Aside from the free options you can also book a private Zoom session with one of the instructors listed on the website.
