Island of Mactan

Then, Jaime makes her way to the Island of Mactan, where the mighty global circumnavigator, Ferdinand Magellan, met his demise at the hands of the island’s unwelcoming warriors led by Datu Lapu-Lapu. Here, she meets notable Filipino Arnis master Bob Silver Tabimina, one of the last remaining pioneers of the Balintawak School, and tries her hand at learning what is considered to be one of the world’s deadliest martial arts.

After picking up the moves, Jaime learns more about their historical significance. They are the same moves that claimed the lives of the Philippines’ first colonizers, four and a half centuries ago. Seeing the full view of the Battle of Mactan being relived right before her eyes, and jumping into the action, Jaime understands that Cebu truly is an island of warriors.
