2nd Testing- Bacolod City, October 12-13, 2019
3rd Testing- Arnis National Encencounter- December 16-18, 2019
The third testing at the National Arnis Encounter has proven that we have found the right stick core material but showed us that we need to improve on the padded cloth and sewing to make them more durable. As a result, we changed our padded sticks cloth into a high tear resistant one.
As a result of different testings, we can now safely say that we can now release it in the market .KALAHI FMA GEAR padded sticks are tested to be of tournament quality, a definitely good value for your money.
