Kung Fu/Mongoose Style

Mongoose martial art is a straight forward form of offense and defense. It does not use any fancy kicking or flying (jumping) in the air, most especially, it does not have any moves that will make itself face its back on its opponent like the 360 round house which most martial arts student are so eager to perfect. Its like finding the straight line in all movements to have the shortest time for the kill. Besides all of what I have said, it's speed is also god like, that it can deliver 12 to 14 moves in just half a second. Knowing the speed, you could produce a conclusion on how much physical strength it gives the practitioner. But it takes great discipline to perfect it. It is a secret self-defense of an organization that I know. Before, it was not allowed to be taught from outside that organization but now they have lowered its level and thought it to outsiders. I heard that there are now groups taught for competition. So if you want to learn the best, you must seek the orginal.

There are many systems that don’t use flashy kicks, infact, that is just traditional in some schools.  There are a lot of southern village styles of Kung-Fu that are extremely direct with low level kicking, no jumping, no 360 degree spins, no flash.  Also, the shortest line is not necessarily a straight one, it is the line of least resistance.  A straight line from California to Europe would necessitate boring a whole through the crust of the earth, but we don’t do that, we travel the line of least resistance.  “God like speed”, this is starting to sound like a sales pitch or you are just something beyond extremely enamored with your particular style.  There is a saying that is taught regarding such claims which is “if it sounds too good to be true it probably is” – “caveat emptor” let the buyer beware, I think that applies in this situation.

Back in 2005,  there is only one group in the Philippines that I know calls themselves as "Maw Shu" but I prefer mongoose. I could not find the meaning of it anywhere. The meaning of Shu is art but the meaning of Maw - I could not find  anywhere resembling mongoose.

You seem like bragging about your straight line short distance theory. I said bragging because it is too far from what I am saying and I know you know what I am saying. Even in math, it says that the shortest distance between two points is a straight line. You're talking about the flight pattern of an airplane on a spherical plane. I'm talking about the distance between two fighting bodies on a flat plane. I'm also a civil engineer, I know boring coz its one of my job and I erected counterpoises in different airports there in the Philippines so I guess I know enough of flight patterns. I don't need to prove that this art has god like speed, speed that does not register in the eyes. I guess you only have been introduced and not actually practiced it. Well if you're still close to that area I would like us to have a friendly spar and lets see what you actually know. Give my regards to philip i.e. if you get to know the guy

Hello there,

I used to practice a Chinese form called shou shu. One of the animal systems that was a part of this style was mongoose. I think the system is quite a rarity and is a unique and effective fighting style. You are lucky to get some exposure to it.

The authentic Mongoose martial art from Bicol Philippine which originated from only one master in the name of "Ka Koing" can take down opponent in the range of 5 meter for long range combat. for short range combat mongoose practitioner can deliver strikes more than a millisecond clicks. you think its impossible? that is why the art remains a mystery. The people who practice the authentic mongoose is not more than the numbers of my hands.

There is a website about mongoose martial arts that originated from the Philippines that has been online for a few years now. Hope you guys visit it and learn from it. www.geocities.com/mongoose_005. But I heard that yahoo website is about to close so hurry up. And as joey34harry said above...only a handful of individuals are blessed to learn the true knowlege of it.

Good post. I was blessed to have met one practitioner in a certain church and he said it was only 1st stance or first power. It was so effective that my crav maga / aikido skills dont work. My face hit the ground without knowing how. I wanted to learn it but he said it's not allowed to be taugh to outsiders. I saw the website you guys are mentioning and was able to exchange emails w/the owners. They said they will try to relocate to a new site...old site will close oct. 26

I am also a martial arts practitioner. arnis,judo, combat aikido, and a shorin ryo  karate black belt which i taught when i was 11 yrs old... i never heard or known about this mongoose thing. until simetime last 2007 at dubai, united arab emirates, where i was working as a plant head technician for paint factory.. one day i meet this guy, a filipino on a visiting visa status whos looking for a job. so to make the story short i had help him to get a job in the company I've been working with. we become friends we share the same accommodation. at first i was just listening to the stories hes telling about mongoose, how it originates, the discipline of the art, how it works, how lethal the Matias art is and i suddenly had an interest to learn the art but its hard to persuade him because an original mongoose practitioner had made a sacred vow to keep it a secret. until one day i  convince him to show me some forms of the said martial arts style.at first as you look at its not an impressive form... the stance, wow looks funny, so we stared the session with a bow. he instructed me to initiate an offensive move, due to my experience i had mixed and mastered my own offensive and defensive moves but to my surprise still he manage to elude my blows and counters my attacks with Locking moves.with a fighting range of 360 degrees just standing in same place moving in circular direction..  the strikes are very lethal not applicable for tournaments. the least you can offer to your opponent is dislocated limbs or paralyze him or kill him in a single blow. its a martial arts for the assassins in my own evaluation....as what the story tells its the only martial arts that challenge the credibility of trakma.  i am very glad that i had shared my experience on mongoose martial arts its really awesome.... one clue ask some members of kapatiran... or if you are very interested...have time to visit muntinlupa and ask about the mongoose supremo, i think he's still serving he's sentence in prison.... or if your in dubai UAE, go to karama district and ask were's the church of kapatiran. inquire.... more power

Our original Mongoose Master here in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is SIR NOMER ATENDIDO. He is the real magic in his perfect moves. Every count that he might execute is a fatal move. The origin of Mongoose Martial Arts is really a mystery by which even our Master don't want to reveal. It's the greatest form of martial arts I have ever observed and practiced.

Im rey, who had for sometime been thougth a mongoose style martial arts, i love the way we perform the numbers and its more enjoyable when you got there, mobilization and counter to counter techniques are very much interesting very useful techniques indeed. Its deadly I'm sure so just please teach them to responsible persons only.

adir wrote at 2010-10-27 18:59:07
Rey is right, this art is only taught to responsible people, you cant master mongoose if you cant control your emotions specifically anger, and i believe anyone who know someone who practice "real" mongoose can attest to that. one thing i remember that my master told me, he said "if you still can run...run! avoid trouble." he even joked about the resemblance of this art to the "SAYO-NA-TSI" (if you're a Filipino you know what sayo-na-tsi means and might be laughing right now) but its true.

if you learned mongoose then you know how much power you hold in your hand (you even hold the life of your opponent), yes this art is deadly and there was even a time when the practice of this art had been forbidden and thats the reason why the art had been in secret and few people know the art (a good realization that only a handful of people "now a days" can control their emotions specifically anger)

The mongoose art is created for survival and to help the practitioner to defend what is dear to them, not to start a conflict and not to boast who is powerful or whose technique is better.

Before I've learned about MONGOOSE I was already wearing black in Shorin-Ryu, Yao-Yan, TRACMA.. and I started training at the age of 10. Mongoose was introduced to me by no other than KA QUING and that was 1977 then He personally trained me one on one for 2 years.. The rest is history. One thing I can say is a strike from Mongoose is lethal and only one who knows Mongoose can tell. The responsibility is huge and one good reason why we should not engage (unless life and death).

Hello I have just wandered on the internet and I found this blog thing. I am surpised that it is so secret. I may have been taught some other form than the original, but none-the-less I have be somewhat taught by a Sensei called Tony Uing.

Lubulikapasa is a martial arts name after the founder. Its technique is called the mongoose style. It is indeed a Kungfu base concept. All the student of the late founder Luis Bulan was thought electrifying mongoose known as the first degree jerking. His successor is his son Arthur Bulan and Imelda Bulan. Both the father and the son teaches their own different techniques to my master. which I refuse to elaborate as a sign of respect to those name mentioned.I am a student of Ferdinand Del Rosario Sr. started learning mongoose third degree wild rats.Started young and now old but still mongoose is my way of life.

mongoose is a very effective and dangerous form of martial arts. I was thought the fundamentals 1 covering 31 techniques, the reverse covering 31 techniques, fundamentals 2 covering 31 techniques and mastery1. due to an unexpected exit of my friend who is a member of INC I was not able to learn the other techniques but given me 10 techniques of using the arnis which is so dangerous than other arnis styles I learned in freestyle self defense. I am a 1st dan black belt in freestyle self defense but I practiced the best for me, mongoose. thanks to my friend Orlando silverio.

It is so nice reading post here, everyone of you has your own set of story of lubulikapasa. unfortunately, It is NOT because they're being taught by the grand master, it means they're being entrusted. It's NOT about money, It's not about how they care, It's NOT about the personal needs.

Lubulikapasa has 3 stages. . Basic, Advance, and degree level.

Unfortunately, No one deserved to learn the degree level, NOT even ONE.

The basic is being taught outside of the so called organization. it consist of 36 moves applied left and right.

Advanced is being taught inside of the so called organization.

They are all authentic, BUT a different program. Basic and Advance are given to those who wanted to learn it anyway.

Hello Jun. is that authentic mongoose? i have seen variation of this moves before. I'm interested to learn it.

The first variation I've seen is more of defensive, you dodge attackers then perform a counter attack to kill them.

The second one is offensive, delivering continuous blow and punches non stop while moving with fast-paced speed foot works.

Jim nakalabas na si ka Arthur. Sabi mo di sya tinuruan ng ama nya na founder? Yan kase kwento ng teacher mo. Bakit di mo subukang kalabanin sya para malaman mong nagsinungaling teacher mo sayo. Anak ng founder yun. Yun ang tagapagmana ng laro. Lapastangan ka.

Kaya di magkaisa ang mongoose dahil sa pag iisip nyong kayo ang magaling. Sila ang peke, nauuna ang bunganga, isip bata, grow up naman.ang husay nasusukat sa labanan di sa kwento lang. Matuto naman kayong magpakumbaba... Pag nanakae ang tawag sa larong di nagmula sa angkan nyo tapos claim nyo inyo.ipag pasalamat natin nalang na natuto tayo. Manahimik at huwag bang mag kwento.
