"Sticks are extensions of the arms" Arnis is the Philippines' national martial art and sport, after President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo signed the Republic Act. No. 9850 in 2009. Arnis along with Eskrima and Kali are terms for the traditional martial arts of the Philippines that emphasize weapon-based fighting with sticks and various improvised weapons. It also includes hand-to-hand combat and weapon disarming techniques. Modern Arnis is the system of Filipino martial arts founded by the late Remy Presas as a self-defence system. The primary weapon is the rattan or kamagong stick called a baston. Many styles of martial arts are practiced for self-defence or include self-defence techniques. Some styles train primarily for self-defence, while other martial or combat sports can be effectively applied for self-defence. While all martial arts training can be argued to have some self-defence applications, self-defence courses are marketed explicitly as being oriented towards effectiveness and optimized towards situations as they occur in the real world. Some of the heroes of the Philippine revolution were also practitioners of Arnis namely Andres Bonifacio, the spouses Diego and Gabriela Silang, and the young General Gregorio Del Pilar. The National Hero Jose Rizal was also reported to have engaged in the said martial art.

    specifically Arnis players. However, there are still some optimistic Filipinos like me who believe Arnis players in general deserve equal attention as the other athletes because they are also talented and versatile, and Arnis in itself is a very interesting sport to be left in the shadows. Sadly, most Filipinos are not even aware that Arnis is the National Martial Art of the Philippines. Somehow this sport is ignored and perhaps most Filipinos fail to recall it, and even the players of Arnis have been…

    Substitution Reactions* INTRODUCTION In class, we have been learning about substitution reactions and the various mechanisms by which they can occur. In a substitution reaction, a leaving group, usually a halide, is replaced by a nucleophile. Two mechanisms have been described for this reaction, a unimolecular (SN1) mechanism, and a bimolecular (SN2) mechanism.
