Dumog - Filipino Wrestling Martial Arts

Dumog is a Filipino style of stand-up wrestling. It also refers to the grappling techniques used by many Filipino martial arts.

The Filipino Martial Arts (FMA) have constantly evolved over time, and it is likely that Dumog was influenced to some degree by grappling methods from other arts such as western wrestling, Judo and Jujutsu. Many FMA practitioners during the post-World War II era cross trained in other arts as well as their native dumog and referred to it as “Combat Judo”. This is a term that isn't used anymore, due to the confusion it caused to westerners as to the true origins of the art.

Dumog Techniques

According to Wikipedia, "Dumog is based on the concept of “control points” or “choke points” on the human body, which are manipulated – for example: by grabbing, pushing, pulling - in order to disrupt the opponent’s balance and to keep him off balance".

Dumog techniques can be assisted by the environment around you such as a wall, a table or a chair. These help to immobilize the opponent, or hurt him further by collision with the object. Similarly, Dumog techniques can be used to manipulate an opponent for use as a shield to protect yourself from multiple attackers. It can also be used to quickly remove a person from an area, much like security or law enforcement “come-along” type techniques.
