The two horse heads represent the literal meaning of Derobio, “Rhythm of the Horse.” They also symbolize the duality of a warrior: the Right Head - the aggressive nature of combat, to overcome your adversary at all costs to SURVIVE…Left Head – the compassion of ones heart to COUNTER ego or hatred, to not let them dictate the outcome of an encounter and lead one back to the virtues of the Eskrimador Creed.
The two Sansibar blades, the very tools of combat used by the Pulahan Warriors of Leyte, guide the two horse heads to a balanced mindset of a true warrior. The blades meet at the center in which anchors the triangles depicting the Philippine National Flag.
The flag is represented as 4 blended triangles that displays the basic foundation of the combative footwork of Pulahan-Derobio Eskrima: Footwork Diagram-
The flag also symbolizes the Siangco Collective:
The stars represent the Mentor, the Beacon and the Compass of the Siangco Collective.
The sun represents the teachers, the mentors, and masters that influenced the Collective.
The open "circle" outlined by our motto symbolizes the open mind and adaptive nature of the Siangco Collective and their belief to blend and adapt to all forms of combat through the guiding philosophy of Pulahan-Derobio Eskrima.
