Grandmaster Meliton Geronimo

Meliton Geronimo, proudly wears the Kendo-gi presented to him by Kendo Master Kobayashi, after they engaged in a friendly exchange of “stick blows”. Geronimo, aside from being the Grandmaster of SIKARAN, is also a Master of ARNIS DE MANO (Doble Baston). On his Kendo-gi are the official seal of the Philippine Amateur Athletic Federation (PAAF) for international athletes and the seal of the Karate (SIKARAN) Brotherhood of the Philippines. Meliton Geronimo presented this Kendo-gi to the author who in the same tradition presented it to his student Victor Laxamana. The figure that resembles a fist on the KBP patch is actually the outline of five bare feet, denoting the fighting art of SIKARAN.
