Martial arts come in different forms and disciplines. From Kungfu to Judo, Jiu-Jitsu to Karate, Taekwondo and more, these are different systems designed for one single purpose: physically defeating opponents and defending against threats. That also includes the Filipino Martial arts, also widely practiced as a sport around the world.
In this episode of the programme, Nillah Nyakoa speaks with Filipino Martial Arts (FMA) enthusiast and trainer Rhio Zablan. They discuss his inspiration and quest to bring the FMA to China as well as what stimulates its fans to practice this highly sophisticated and comprehensive martial art form, from Rhio's native home - the Philippines.
