The Labuyo Technique

Like the ancient warriors of the Philippines who smeared the tips of their arrows, spears or blades with deadly poision, the KOMBOKAN Labuyo Technique uses the siling labuyo or bird's eye chili as a fighting or defence technique. This technique is suited for the frail or light framed individuals who will definitely have a hard time defending themselves against bigger and stronger attackers. The technique employs the crushing of dried or fresh labuyo in the fingers and hands and as soon as the attacker approches, the defender goes straight to the attacker's eyes causing him temporary blindness. This can either be followed up by series of strikes or escape. The exercise for this technique is hand speed and coordination. Instead of focusing on the attacker's hands or limbs, it is best effective to go straight to the eyes especially if the attacker is armed with a weapon. Take note, the eyes are very easy target :-)
