Read ......Pierluigi's Testimonial of his recent visit to Cebu also on the Testimonals page 

Dacayana filipino cebuano martial art and the Dacayana Family is not only a top school but teaches valuable life skills such us courtesy, respect , discipline and honor. I went in cebu the heart where the grand master Jun trained  and teach me the magic beauty  of this style . 


It is not only based on weapons like knife and stick but hands fighting that let me surprised  of the effectiveness of the style despite the many martial arts i had already practised. 


Jun is not only a skill master but a life master   very careful that the teachings learned  become part of you..i found a friendly environment Jun, his friends , the Country, people always ready to support you. 


if you are looking for a school that will not only teach you martial arts but help you become better human being then this is the place for you!  Listen, no any other filipino martial art is comparable with the Dacayana style!
