PANANTUKAN (Filipino Boxing)


Panantukan, more commonly known as Filipino boxing employs all the upper body weapons to neutralise an opponent. The art, traditionally practiced without gloves, allows the practitioner to employ various parts of his body (fist, forearm,elbow) to neutralise parts of the opponents' body. This is more commonly known as limb destruction. By striking various nerve points and muscle tissue, partial paralysis occurs in the affected limb, thereby making it useless in combat. However, Panantukan also employs other weapons such as the shoulder (for ramming) and the head (for striking). Strikes are also not limited to the limbs. The ribs, spine, and the back of the neck are all valid targets in this art. Its value is proven in the many techniques that are found in Eskrima, Arnis and other weapon based styles which are derived from Panantukan, the most common being the limb destruction.
