IS3 Instructor and Guro Promotions

I am very happy to announce the promotion of  Adam Benzaquen to IS3 Instructor (IL 1) and Brinsen Wynn to IS3 Katalungan Guro on September 18th, 2016. Both of these gentlemen have been involved with IS3 and Inayan Eskrima for over 15 years. Their support of IS3 in Wisconsin USA has been tremendous and of the highest quality.



I am looking forward to working with them in the future to bring IS3 Eskrima to new practitioners and location throughout the WI area.  Their knowledge, attitude and instruction is a great example of efforts to move forward and grow within the art. I am honored to have them within the small circle of IS3 Instructors and Guros and call them brothers.

Stay Sharp and let the fun begin.

A big step for IS3 Europe – Guro Promotion

IS3 Sweden

A big step for IS3 Europe.

It is with great honor that I announce the first Full IS3 Guro and IS3 Eskrimador promotions in Europe.

After 14 year of training and countless challenges Kenneth Johansson has been promoted to Full IS3 Guro. With this promotion he has gained my complete confidence in his abilities to preserve the foundation of Inayan Eskrima and has all the tools to grow within the system in the future without my guidance.  With this promotion he has gained the rights to rank all levels within Inayan System III Eskrima up to IS3 Katalungan Guro.

Along with Guro Johansson, Mattias Jansson has completed his training and teaching requirements of the foundation material. Based on his understanding of future responsibilities and commitments relative to giving rank and taking on students, he has chosen to take the rank of IS3 Eskrimador. This rank offers the ability to continue ones training and advancement within the advanced areas of the system without giving ranks to students directly.

Both of these gentlemen have committed themselves to the art of Inayan Eskrima in ways that are not matched by anyone I have met in Europe to date. I am honored by their interest in my system, history and lineage. It gives me great comfort to see that they have arrived at this special place in their development as Inayan System III Eskrima practitioners and I am looking forward to facing the challenges that confront IS3 Eskrima and its practitioners together.

Thank you gentlemen for your loyal support and continued feedback. It is an honor not only to call you my students but to call you brothers. I know you have been looking at this mark in your development for a long time, as do most students in the art, but I will ask that you don’t look at it as a finish line but rather as a new beginning. There is a lot to learn and a lot to give future generations….

So let us begin!

New Training Location

We are doing what we can to make it even easier for all to train in the Filipino Martial Arts (FMA).

Welcome IS3 Wuppertal, Germany to our raster.

Updated Instructor list

There has been some changes to our list of instructors through out the world.

It should be noted that all ranks below IS3 Guro are conditional.

If the person is not on this official list of instructors, they are teaching without IS3 authorization.

Please help us keep the quality high and let us know of individuals claiming to represent our lineage.

IS3 Guro Promotion

I am happy to announce yet another IS3 Guro promotion.

On May 24, 2015 Jo Bossaerts was promoted to IS3 Katalungan Guro. He has been my student for over 12 years and had contributed greatly to the growth of Inayan Eskrima in Belgium over the years.

I consider Jo a good friend and a great teacher of my art. His support for my work and personal development is greatly appreciated by me and my other students. This promotion makes him the third IS3 Guro in Europe and 1 of 8 in the world.

I am looking forward to many more years learning from Jo and I highly recommend him as an instructor of FMA/Martial Arts in general and a personal life coach.

Keep up the good work my friend, much love.

Katalungan Guro Promotion

November 29, 2014

As time moves forward so does the IS3 Guro list. If gives me great pleasure to present the newest Katalungan Guro to the IS3 ranks; Mr. Mattias Jansson.

Guro Jansson has been my student from the time I came to Europe in 2001. He has worked hard to bring his understanding and capabilities to a level that I accept as representation of an IS3 Katalungan Guro.

Behyond his capabilities and understanding of the art and traditions of my system, his loyalty to me and my system brings me great honor. The IS3 students that have access to his teaching and training are in good shape to develop in IS3 Eskrima.

I am very happy he has made it this far and looks to continue long into the future.

Welcome to the new area of training Katalungan Guro Mattias Jansson.
