Jendo is a Filipino martial arts style founded in 1973 by its Filipino orginator Grandmaster Jonathan "June" Makiling Abaya in Mandaluyong City, Philippines which means "Economical New Fist Way.

It utilizes empty hands and traditional Filipino weapons.
Weapons used bangkaw, baot orarnis, dulo-dulo, siit and bladed tools like punyal, itak or buneng.

Basics of Jendo

When an individual decides to practice martial arts, one must first familiarise himself with its fundamentals. Enumerated here are some of the most important stances, punches, strikes, footworks and kicks being used in the Jendo system of self-defense created by Grandmaster Abaya.

Basic Stances
Various styles of martial arts have their own stances, each created and developed with distinct purposes for unusual situations. It affects reaction time. Improper stance places the body in an unbalanced position. Moreover, it also decreases power.

Basic Punches and Strikes

Several styles of martial arts disregard the importance of punches and hand strikes; instead they put much emphasis on the development of their legs for striking; others concentrate on weapons training. Not all places and times allow an individual to carry weapons. They have forgotten that hands with or without a weapon can both block and then counter without placing one's body in an unbalanced position. The legs, due to their length cannot react to a surprise attack in a narrow street. Furthermore, the legs cannot move freely because they carry the whole weight of the body.

Basic Kicks

Kicks are one of the most distinctive features in martial arts. Aside from their advantage in reach, if initiated properly, a kick can be ten times stronger than a hand strike. However, leaving one leg on the ground to support the whole body may place you in an unbalanced position. The most practical way to initiate a kick is by the use of a straight line. A kick must always travel in the shortest route. Do not lift your leg first, then kick. Delivering your kick like this will expose your intention. It should be delivered directly from the ground to the target. Always use your weight, and to gain additional power, deliver it with speed and simultaneously jerk your hips upon contact. Control your shoulder when delivering a kick. The careless movement of the shoulder also exposes the direction of your target.

Stance Shifting and Foot-works
Stance shifting and footwork are essential. A good stance alone is not a guarantee to survive any street encounter. One must learn how to make a quick move from one place and shift from one stance to another. When moving and shifting stances, weight must always be directly under the moving leg. Movement should be swift; while in motion, maintain balance and correct posture.:From the different stances, try to incorporate your blocking and attacking techniques and then gradually increase your speed. Do not stay on one stance too long. Outsmart your opponent; confuse him by often shifting from one form to another.

Concepts and Principles

The mere desire to learn a certain technique of defense or counter-attack is not the only factor to think about in mastering the art of self-defense. An individual who wants to excel much in it, must understand first the basic foundation of the art. It is in the art's philosophies, concepts and principles where the secret of its movements, way of thinking and attitude lies.


No-mindedness is the skill to clear one's mind of all thoughts. It means that you must not think when you are in front of an opponent. Having to think what is your opponent going to do or think, will very hard for you to guess. An opponent is not just a punch, a kick or a simple technique. An opponent is an arsenal of infinite and unlimited techniques and strategy. To see you opponent clearly, look at him in his entirety. Look in to his eyes and see him as he really exit. When he moves, you must let your actions be taken over by your mind and body directed reflexes.

Un-interrupted Movements

Un-interrupted movements is a combination of mental and body defense reflex. It is the ability to react in any situation like a triggered-gun. It is the combination of mental and body defense reflex.
