The term Cuentada refers to “calculation” or “to counter.” It is the principle that guides Balintawak Eskrimadors. The assumption is that the opponent is skilled and attacks will be countered – for every counter there is a counter. The Taboada Cuentada System is based on classic Balintawak close quarter fighting, originated and tested in the streets of Cebu City, Philippines. Identified by it’s use of the single stick and close quarter play, it is designed to develop combat attributes: speed, timing, and distancing. Additionally, emphasis is placed on economy of motion, flexible body alignment without unnatural or forced postures, and delivery of direct line strikes to produce lightning fast counter attacks.More Info on FMA
