PAMBANSANG LARO IN BATANG PINOY FINALS

After the Philippine Sports Commission (PSC) announced that arnis will not be played in the Batang Pinoy Finals merely because of complaints by a few non member coaches that delayed the games, many sentiments were received by ARPI expressing that they were saddened with the harsh decision that affected everyone in the arnis community. Since the announcement just a few days ago, ARPI accumulated hundreds of complaints coming from parents, LGU’s, athletes and other member coaches stating it is unfair that so many be deprived of their right to enjoy our very own native sport just because of a few. Many felt that all their hardships using their time, money and effort have been wasted. All of the expressed concerns had a very big impact on the decision to finish the arnis finals.

Arnis is our National Martial Art and Sport of the Philippines (R.A. 9850). It is our “Pambansang Laro”. Therefore, it should always be part of any activity of the PSC.

To all those who expressed their lamentations, salamat at mabuhay kayo!

VALIANT ARNISADOR DIES

We are deeply saddened by the sudden demise of MR. CEASAR BADICAO, a brave arnisador who succumbed to 3rd degree burns which he got in a fire while saving his child in their building dwelling. The child is alright, but we asked for prayers by the arnis community for him and all his loved ones left behind. He served very well as ARPI Baguio Chapter Coordinator for a long while up to his untimely death.

Submit entries to Jayson L Vicente at e-mail address jaysonscorpio@yahoo.com.ph on or before 26 August 2013 (for strict compliance).

 

ADVISORY: i-Arnis Instructor Course

Due to the heavy downpour of rain and flooding specially around Metro Manila and most of Luzon, the scheduled i-Arnis Instructor Course will not push through as scheduled on August 21, 2013.

 

ONLY ARPI RULES FOR PALARONG PAMBANSA

The Department of Education (Dep Ed) shall adopt the ARPI rules for all events in the Palarong Pambansa. This is in accordance to Republic Act 10588 otherwise known as Palarong Pambansa Act of 2013. This act includes all the sports events that are played in the Palarong Pambansa.

This law will help identify or discover new talents that maybe future medalists in all local and international competitions in the future. Gold medals in International competitions such as the Olympics remain a dream because the task force of Dep Ed for Palarong Pambansa in the past years have refused to follow the International Standards in all the sports. It did not cooperate with the Philippine Olympic Committee (POC) and its National Sports Association (NSA's) thereby creating confusion for the athlete, coaches, parents and the public on which standard rules to use and which body will act as arbiter. This is discouraging to worthy athletes that have been cheated and thereby causing them to abandon the sport. Normally, in other countries, the rules they used are in accordance with the International Olympic Committee ( IOC ) Standard. In case of complaints, they may bring it to the National Olympic Committee ( NOC ) of their country. Furthermore, most of the winners of the Palaro cannot be used by the NSA's in the National and International events immediately because they would lose due to technicality. Meaning, they have been accustomed to the wrong rules. No wonder gold for the Philippines has been elusive.
