Cacoy Canete

DOCE PARES WORLDWIDE

The Cacoy Canete Doce Pares Worldwide is a non-stock, non-profit organization recognized by the government of the Philippines. It is the governing-body of all the martial art clubs and schools that practice the art of reinvented Doce Pares Eskrima developed and revolutionized by the Legendary Stickfighter and Innovator, Supreme Grandmaster (SGM) Cacoy Cañete using his combative system. His reinvented “combative” Eskrima system called Cacoy Canete Doce Pares Eskrima is based on his years of experience tested in real combat, and acquiring vast knowledge and mastering skills in different martial arts to the highest degree. Thus making its techniques and applications, scientific, more effective, more applicable and more realistic.

The Cacoy Canete Legacy

The Canete family have always been stalwart supporters, propagators and promoters of the native systems of the Philippines. When you speak about Doce Pares, it is always associated with the CANETES, particularly, SGM Cacoy Canete who became Doce Pares Club’s greatest Champion, who never backed out from any challenges.

With the passing of Supreme Grand Master (SGM) Cacoy Canete on Feb. 5, 2016, the members of the Federation earnestly desire to give his art the world-wide recognition and honor it so fully deserves. SGM Cacoy painstakingly trained in, learned, innovated and built his Eskrima system beginning at the age of 7 through his death at 96 ½ years old, a total of almost 90 years of development, innovation and training, such a lifetime of dedication, achievements and values is a rarity in this modern age.

Through his own research and development, he invented a new system of Eskrima known as “Eskrido”, an innovative martial arts system that integrates the reinvented Doce Pares Eskrima from linear, long range “Largo Mano” style to short range-rapid fire”Korto Kurbada”, with Juijitsu, Kodokan Judo and Aikido.

Our Mission Statement

It is our mission to continue the development, propagation and teaching of the core principles and values that Supreme Grandmaster (SGM) Cacoy Cañete painstakingly researched, developed and taught during his lifetime of training, fighting and championing the Filipino Martial Arts.

Furthermore, we recognize the practicality, utility, combat effectiveness, beauty and value that his system of Eskrima, Eskrido and Pangamot brings into the World Martial Arts lexicon.

As such we pledge to further develop, propagate and teach these arts, always mindful of the core principles that SGM researched in his lifetime.

The Headquarters will maintain the core library of all written, filmed and otherwise recorded lessons as laid down by SGM Cacoy Canete during his lifetime and furthermore pledge to maintain standards and principles in the teaching of CDP curriculum to ensure that gradings/rankings continue to be of a uniform high standard for all ranks.
