Christopher P. Siangco
"The Mentor"Grandmaster (8th Level Pulahan)…the catalyst that exposed the warrior arts to his sons and guiding force of the foundation of Pulahan-Derobio Eskrima.
-Professor– 9th Dan Red Belt/ Silver trim  under Grandmaster Julian “Blue” Generalao’s Chinese Kenpo/Kajukenbo.
 
Born and raised in Hawaii and a lifetime of martial arts experience, Grandmaster (6th Level Pulahan) Chris Siangco's martial art influences came from the ones he loved most. As a child, he trained in the art of Panantukan (Filipino boxing) under his Grandfather, Elias "Battling Bolo" Cantere, who was Hawaii's welter-weight champ in the 30's a major player in the Filipino Smokers fight clubs. Growing up he also trained under his brother in the art of Cha 3-Hawaiian Kenpo. He later began training under Great Grandmaster Braulio Tomada Pedoy, who is the grandfather of his loving wife Gail, since the 1960’s. He also holds the rank of Professor (9th Dan - Red Belt w/ Silver trim) under Grandmaster Julian “Blue” Generalao, a long time friend and mentor.
Grandmaster Chris moved out of the Valley Isle of Maui with his ohana to the mainland in the early 90's with hopes of a new beginning. In 1992, their maternal grandfather, Great Grandmaster Braulio Tomada Pedoy passed away. This was the catalyst that urged Grandmaster Chris Siangco and family to fulfill the Great Grandmaster's dream of spreading his art of Derobio Eskrima. With the blessing of Batikan Eduardo Pedoy the dream took form.
In any endeavor that one heads into, you must take time in finding the right path you want to venture on. Grandmaster Siangco decided to step off in the old school direction, teaching small private classes out of his home. He wanted to build a strong unit of head students and instructors before heading into the commercial market. For several years he taught in this manner, like the days when he trained in the banana patch and when Great Grandmaster Pedoy used to train his sons behind their home in Waiawa, HI. The Siangco ohana were brought up training in this private manner with the masters. As the years went on, they have seen enthusiasts come and go; nevertheless, they have groomed dedicated Derobio Eskrimadors which they now call family. In 1996, Grandmaster Siangco and the family ventured in the commercial market basing a storefront school in Chula Vista, CA.  For several years they kept this venue open; however, Grandmaster always preferred the private setting of instruction.  In 2000, the leadership and control was passed down to Master Chaz Siangco where a new progressive vision of Derobio has been formulated and new instructors made through their lineage.  Grandmaster currently came out of retirement to open theEagle Ridge Martial Arts Academyin affiliation with his home churchEagle Ridge Churchwhere he is an Associate Pastor.
