Pangulong Guro Krishna Godhania

[vc_row css=”.vc_custom_1544988750818{margin-top: -35px !important;}”][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_column_text]Guro Krishna Godhania is regarded as one of the leading exponents of the Filipino Martial Arts in Europe. He began his general martial arts training in 1982 and specifically Filipino Martial Arts training in 1989.

Guro Krishna has travelled to the Philippine islands numerous times to study Eskrima/Arnis; the first of these trips was in January 1992. It was during this field trip that he met Grandmaster Abner Pasa – a leading exponent of the Filipino Martial Art in the Philippines.

Abner Pasa is the founder of the Warriors and Balitok Eskrima systems and the Chief Instructor of the Warriors Eskrima club in Cebu City.

After many years of study with various renowned eskrimadors throughout the Philippine islands, Abner Pasa organised the Institute of Filipino Martial Arts.

The main aim of the Institute was to analyse and document the lesser-known systems of the various masters and grandmasters – thus preserving the various styles of Eskrima/Arnis so that they could be taught to future generations.

Since Krishna was accepted as a closed-door student by Abner, he was exposed to this vast knowledge. Some of the other teachers he was thus able to learn from were Fortunato “Atong” Garcia (Yaming Arnis), Tanny Campo (Pangamut), Liborio Heyrosa (Balintawak Arnis), Vicente Karin (Doce Pares Eskrima), and Romy Macapagal (Kalis Ilustrisimo).

Krishna lived with these Masters, so that he could experience Eskrima as a way of life. Aside from learning their fighting arts, Krishna interviewed them – thus obtaining scarce details of their teachers and challenge matches.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_row_inner css=”.vc_custom_1544988734323{margin-top: 25px !important;}”][vc_column_inner][vc_single_image image=”2567″ img_size=”large” style=”vc_box_rounded”][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row]
