DOCE ENGAÑOS - The 12 Feints of Kalis Ilustrisimo

If there is one factor that would define the art of Kalis Ilustrisimo or the tactics used by Grand Master “Tatang” Ilustrisimo is the judicial use of “ENGAÑOS” or what is commonly known as feints or “baiting”.

I’m asked many times if Kalis Ilustrisimo is an offensive or a defensive style. My best reply is that it is neither.

It is a style that predominantly concentrates on “setting up” the opponent through the use of feints and deception.

DOCE ENGAÑOS is a video that gives you the tactics of GM Ilustrisimo. It is a step-by-step guide to the basic “12 Angles of Striking” and gives an in-depth and complete breakdown of the fakes and setups available to you.

The greatest advantage of this is that you control the fight. You are not dependent on waiting for your opponent's move. You take the fight to them.....

The principles taught can readily be adapted to the 12 angle strikes to any style of FMA.

Ray Floro

Raymond developed Floro Fighting Systems (FFS)  -  a realistic, simplified method of dealing with armed and unarmed confrontations and specialising in the awareness and defence of edged weapon assaults.

By discussing and formulating formal training programs and teaching guidelines, FFS has now been adopted by military personnel and law enforcement worldwide. Several Law Enforcement and “SWAT” personnel have also chosen to use the principles in their training academy.

Regular clients receive private lessons, their professions ranging from – Office Workers, Security Personnel, Air Marshalls, Commercial Pilots, Business Owners, Military Instructors and personnel, other Martial Arts Instructors.

Raymond was also the “Training Leader” for the US based “Guardian Angels” Safety Patrol. Raymond formulated and taught a training regime suitable for recruits to use in the submission and arrest of offenders in the enclosed spaces of trains.  He also led patrols throughout the subway network and “streets”.

Floro Fighting Systems is a system of Edged Weapon combat and defence that is not only simple to learn, but is one of the most effective systems of self defence available today.  Efficient, direct and immediate, FFS is one of the very few styles that is still based on the blade, and is used by civilians and members of the military, and law enforcement agencies worldwide.
