A separate system to Bakbakan Kali, the Classic Arnis system of the late Grandmaster Placido Yambao is revealed and offered only by Bakbakan International after ten years of research and translation of original text by Grandmaster Reynaldo Galang.


The Classic Arnis system is a very structured presentation of the Espada y Daga methods practiced during the early 20th century.  The bladed methods are often consider to be the backbone of the Filipino Martial Arts and the Classic Arnis system is an important element of the martial heritage propagated by Bakbakan International.

Bakbakan UK offers extensive and intensive training in the Classic Arnis system of Placido Yambao to anyone over the age of 16 years.  Structured and progressive training is available to all, regardless of background or experience.
