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.
