FABIAN  DAMIAN  CANALITA

Sifu Glenn Abrescy's uncle, mentor and first martial arts instructor responsible for sharing the Canonigo Clan stick fighting art of Naga-Cebu, Philippines.

In 1985, Grandmaster Glenn C. Abrescy founded the art of Kemscrima-Doh which blends the footwork found in Indonesian Kuntao, the flowing principles found in Filipino Escirma and the destructive principles found in Chinese Kempo and Japanese Karate. The term Kemscrima-Doh stems from three parts: KEM, SCRIMA and DOH. "KEM" represents Kempo, Chuan-Fa, Kajukenbo Kempo/Gung-Fu, Imua Kuntaw/Silat and Karate. "SCRIMA" represents Escrima, Kali, Arnis, Okinawan Kobudo, Bladed Weapons, Stick Arts and Trapping Hand Techniques. While "DOH" marries the two terms and translates to the taoist term for "the way" or universal order and enlightenment.
