Welcome to the Luzviminda Arnis Kali Brotherhood (L.A.K.B.) website. We hope that you find this website to be informative, enjoyable and most of all helpful. We have a ton of information and many new features planned for future updates as the site grows, so please check back often. This is an exciting time for Filipino combat stylists as well as all other martial arts practitioners because one of the true living treasures of the Filipino warrior tradition has finally decided to come out of seclusion and share his art with the world.
That man is Grandmaster Federico Lazo and his art is Luzviminda Arnis Kali. Now, for the first time this unique and powerful combat-proven system is available to the public. Grand Master Frederico Lazo’s decision to openly teach and promote this art represents a historic opportunity to participate in a combat legacy that has continued to captivate martial arts practitioners from around the globe.
We refer to our organization as The Luzviminda Arnis Kali Brotherhood because it is indeed a brotherhood. Please know that regardless of whether you are a seasoned Arnisador, a student of other styles or even just a beginner, we openly welcome you. We also wish to gratefully acknowledge the contributions of all of the Grandmasters, Masters and students of the Filipino martial tradition who have worked hard to keep these arts alive today. A special debt of gratitude is owed to the late Grandmaster Remy Presas for all of his efforts and of course to his brother Grandmaster Ernesto Presas. We all thank you.
On this website you will find many interesting features that will offer a glimpse of Luzviminda Arnis Kali, but to truly know it’s devastating power you must feel it in person. Please feel free to contact us so that we can provide you with the opportunity to experience this art first hand. For those of us who feel the lure of the Filipino warrior tradition, there is simply nothing like it.
