MARTIAL ARTS LEGENDS: ESCRIMA – LEO M. GIRON
Included in this historic DVD is private home footage and photos of one of the greatest Filipino Martial Artists of our time, Grand Master Emeritus Leo M. Giron, along with interviews with two of his closest friends, Guro Dan Inosanto and Grand Master Tony Somera. A World War II combat commando handpicked by General Douglas MacArthur for special assignment in the Philippines, Grand Master Emeritus Giron was the founder of one of the most effective, combat-proven fighting systems, Giron Arnis Escrima and Bahala Na Martial Arts.
In a rare personal interview, Dan Inosanto, the first graduate from Bahala Na Martial Arts, remembers Leo M. Giron as “my second father” and speaks about Giron’s impact and contributions to the Filipino Martial Arts in America and around the world. Also included is a special interview with Grand Master Tony Somera, heir to the Giron Arnis Escrima and Bahala Na Martial Arts system, and the only person promoted by Grand Master Emeritus Leo M. Giron to Master and then to Grand Master. It’s a collector’s item for all Martial Arts fans, regardless of style.
