Kapisanang Mandirigma – A Federation of warriors from different disciplines of the Warrior Arts of the Philippines. It is not a style, nor a representation of any singular style, but rather a federation of practitioners with similar goals to provide a vehicle for growth and personal discovery through continued training, research, projects, programs and collaborations with like minded organization. Projects include Kali Klub sa SIPA, Kali Klub sa PWC, Kali Klub sa FilAm Arts and Mandirigma.org/Mandirigma Research Organization.

Founded in 1998 by Guros Joel Adriatico, Hospecio “Bud” Balani Jr., Mar Elepaño, Choy Flores, Dino Flores, Ariel Flores Mosses, Arnold Noche, Hans Anton Tan, Gary Quan (RIP) and Pantaleon “Mang Leo” Revilles, Jr. (RIP). These initial members were all a part ot the Lameco SOG (Sulite Orihinal Group) who decided that they wanted to continue working together after the passing of their teacher, the late Punong Guro Edgar Sulite. This unique federation has an ever-growing but extremely selective membership representing numerous progressive fighting styles. The ideas that interchange between the diverse styles and dedicated members create a dynamic foundation for continuously keeping the Warrior Arts of the Philippines alive with integrity for future generations.
