Eskrima Workshop Held to Conclude UP Cebu PE Classes By: James U. Sy Jr.

The Filipino Martial Arts Eskrima workshop was successfully conducted by Dan Ritchell Guba and Cesario Perez through the efforts of the Physical Education Department of the University of the Philippines Visayas Cebu College last September 26, 2009 at the Arts and Sciences lobby, UP Visayas Cebu College, Cebu as the culminating activity of all the PE 2 Arnis classes of Lovelyn Hontiveros and Junius Bryan Palermo.

The workshop instructors gave demonstrations before starting the seminar. Perez was a gold medal in last year's Arnis competition at the Ayala Center Cebu.

The workshop covered Arnis footwork, striking, and blocking techniques. The participants were awarded certificates after the seminar. An Arnis team is expected to be formed in the UP Cebu campus by next semester.
