Your first class is on the ancient Filipino indigenous script called Baybayin. It is a pre-colonial writing system that was used as early as the 16th century but was suspended when the Spanish colonized the country. Your instructor will teach you the basics of Baybayin, and by the end of the class, you should be able to spell simple words using the script.
In your 2nd class, you will learn about Filipino martial arts. Your instructor will teach you the basics of Arnis, Kali, and Escrima. You’ll learn basic strikes and combinations, as well as defense and empty hand movements.
For your third class, you will learn about Filipino culture and traits. This class will tackle the beliefs, traditions, and social customs of the Filipino people. Your instructor will introduce you to Filipino holidays and festivities, as well as virtues like pakikipagkapwa-tao, or relating to fellow human beings.
You’ll end your series of classes with a session on T’boli weave and dance. The T’boli is a tribe that, until several decades ago, was isolated from the modern world. Your pure-blooded T’boli teacher will introduce you to the musical instruments and dances of the tribe. You will also learn about T’nalak, the tribe’s sacred cloth.
