Our school of Escrima Derobio stays on the original base of the pure concept what was practiced by General Ablen and it was taught by GGM Braulio Pedoy and his son Batikan Eduardo Pedoy.
General Faustino Ablen was an extraordinary leader and relentless fighter who lived on the Island of Leyte. He was defending the island during the Philippine American War. General Ablen has the distinction of being the last anti-colonial Filipino General in the Philippine.
Great Grandmaster Braulio Pedoy who was trained directly by General Ablen and master the Derobio style and later he was highly respected by the other escrima masters of his time.
The Derobio style is very effective defensive art with the complex of the movements with the rhythm of the horse.
Our importance is to keep the style pure for the next generations.
