Balintawak Arnis is a Filipino martial art, developed back in the 1950s. It is a much more vicious and spontaneous form for fighting that relies on swift and quick close combative techniques. 

The video is a demonstration of a sparring match taking place between Grandmaster Crispulo “Ising” Atillo and his student Master Virgil Cavada. 

The clip doesn’t contain much instruction, but you can pick up right from the bat start practicing. It’s a short sparring session showcasing, hand to hand, knife, stick, and sword fighting techniques. 

It’s entertaining to watch though, at least among martial arts enthusiasts, and if you watch it in slow motion, you may come up with something innovative in the end.
