About Pangulong Guro Krishna
Krishna has traveled to the Philippine Islands - numerous times to study Eskrima/Arnis; the first of these trips was in January 1992. It was during this field trip - that he met Grandmaster Abner Pasa - a leading exponent of the art in the Philippines.
Abner Pasa is the founder of the Balitok Eskrima system and the Chief Instructor of the Warriors Eskrima club in Cebu City. After many years of study with various renowned eskrimadors throughout the Philippine Islands, Pasa organised the Institute of Filipino Martial Arts.
The main aim of the Institute was to analyse and document the lesser-known systems of various masters and grandmasters - thus preserving the various styles of Eskrima/Arnis so that they could be taught to future generations.
Since, Krishna was accepted as a closed-door student by Abner - he was exposed to this vast knowledge. Some of the other teachers he was thus able to learn from were Fortunato "Atong" Garcia (Yaming Arnis), Tanny Campo (Pangamut), Liborio Heyrosa (Balintawak Arnis), Vicente Karin (Doce Pares Eskrima), and Romy Macapagal (Kalis Ilustrisimo).
Articles written by Krishna Godhania and published in various publications are coming soon.
