CALLING all Ilonggo arnisadors!

Grab your rattan sticks this August 18, 2019, as the Philippine Kali Arnis Federation (PEKAF) in collaboration with the Iloilo City Sports and Development Division joins the 82nd Charter Day sports events.

The 6th Inter Public School Invitational Arnis Tournament, also known as “Iloilo Charter Day Arnis Tournament”, will be held at the SM City Activity Center.

PEKAF, the group that organized the event, is recognized by the National Sports Association (NSA) and the Philippine Sports Commission (PSC).

The tournament is to assist the Iloilo City government in the execution of their development program and other meaningful activities through Arnis and to help frame the personal character of every individual, to encourage, develop and enhance their skills.
