Arnis-Eskrima training with Cat Necula
Catalin Necula (London, UK) started his martial journey with Shotokan Karate
and continued with Bujinkan Taijutsu.
His first exposure to Filipino Martial Arts was through Tuhon Nigel Herterich
in Rapid Arnis and Master Jay Dobrin in BIFF Escrima.
He also studied Nasubukang Arnis privately with Guro Doug Tucker,
and briefly exposed to Lameco Eskrima through Guro Benjamin Jun Pueblos.
In May 2006 he started training in Dog Brothers Martial Arts
and one year later started learning privately De Campo 1-2-3 Original
from Guro Tony Yarwood.
While training in Filipino Martial Arts, Cat has also been training in MMA,
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and boxing and at the moment he is the training partner
of Antonio Faedda, the developper of NUDDA Filipino Boxing.
I started training with Cat in September 2006, when he came to Linz
and initiated me in BIFF Serrada Escrima.
In May 2007 we met again and learned from him the basics of
Dog Brothers Stickfighting System and I also asisted him
in the seminar that he held in Romania.
A few months later I visited him in London and received more instructions
in stickfighting and knife fighting concepts.
Here are a few videos of Catalin Necula in action.
