of Death' where he appeared as the Eskrimador guardian (FMA) trying
to prevent Bruce Lee from ascending to the next floor of the Pagoda.
& Red Colours OF The Filipino Martial Art's Uniform
According to the book 'The Encyclopaedia of Martial Arts' when the
Philippines passed into the hands of the United States, the American
marines found themselves face to face with a people who had no respect
for a .38 gun. They would fire round after round into the oncoming
Muslim, whose Kris (sword) would just keep flailing (killing any soldier
or civilian in its path) until he would finally collapse. Therefore
higher calibre .45 revolvers were issued to knock attacking Muslims
backward to stop them hacking one last victim as they fell forward.
Theses fighters were the freedom loving Moros of Mindanao, who wore
black dress with red headbands that symbolised that they had sworn
a blood oath and were prepared to fight to the death.
Hence most uniforms today are black with red stripes - to symbolise
the red headband of the Moros. For those of you who didn't know ...the
Moro resistance fighter uniform was what Dan Inosanto wore in the
film 'Game of Death' - as the eskrimador guardian fighting Bruce Lee.
