Essential Filipino Martial Arts is Hock’s generic Filipino system. If you get rank in the PAC? You automatically get rank in the Essential FMA system. Three vital sources are Ernesto Presas and Remy Presas and Inosanto Family collectives of FMA systems.
Over four decades ago in the 1980s, Hock began amassing the most combative aspects of Filipino Fighting systems and Kali Silat, attaining several black belts and certifications, strengthening it all with his military and police training and experience for a reality check. He has spent many years dedicated to finding the common threads, correcting and omitting sport aspects, artsy extravagances and isolating the very essence of combat. Hock reports he has never really felt comfortable forced to teach only one. He blended all these systems with his prior years in other martial arts like karate, kenpo and jujitsu and added his 27 years experience in policing and military training. His years of teaching culminated into this hardcore FMA-PAC format.
