Arnis Oaths of Sportsmanship (Filipino version)

P1000257

Today, 29 June 2013, The Arnis Pasindo Martial Arts Association held the first day of its 7th Invitational Arnis Tournament.

Congratulations to all the participants and winners in today’s events — Anyo (Form) and Juniors Full Contact Competition.

Tomorrow will be another exciting day with the Seniors’ Full Contact Competition.

Let me share the Arnis Pasindo Tournament Oaths of Sportsmanship (for athletes; for officials; and for coaches and members of the athletes’ entourage). They are always recited in Filipino but I included the English translations below.
