Pangamut is an empty-hand fighting art taught by Dan Inosanto. It contains a number of grappling techniques, as well as hand strikes, kicks, leg sweeps, foot traps, biting, and gouging. Students of Filipino martial arts typically learn how to use weapons before learning empty-hand techniques, whereas most other oriental martial arts generally teach empty-hand techniques up to black-belt level and then introduce weapons training. Sticks, knives, and daggers are the most common weapons encountered during confrontations in the Philippines, so these are the ones that are taught. Many martial artists who learn weapon arts in the Philippines have little or no experience of empty-hand training. Pangamut addresses this need by teaching weapon techniques, but with an empty hand.

A classic maneuver comes when an opponent thrusts a knife, stick, or sword toward your face— you parry your opponent with your right hand, making contact with their wrist, then your left hand makes contact with their elbow, pushing forward before your right hand goes for a thrusting stab. This stabbing action can be replaced with a punch or a chop, and the move can be performed in exactly the same way unarmed as it can armed. It is this underlying thought and genius that informs many of the empty-hand Filipino fighting arts.
