Felix Roiles

Felix Roiles is without a doubt, one of the foremost experts on the Filipino arts. From hand fighting to stick fighting to knife fighting, there is no limit to the expertise of this gentleman. Born in the Philippines, he is a two-time World Full Contact Stick Fighting Champion and has been practicing the arts since childhood. A descendent from pioneer Lapu Lapu, Roiles teaches the ancient Cebuano fighting style that he learned from his grandfather, Andres Roiles. To honor his grandfather, in 1983, he named the system Pakamut. Roiles is considered one of the biggest advocates for the Filipino arts. From seminars to workshops to special events, he continues to promote the culture of the Philippines. He was inducted into the Martial Arts History Museum’s Hall of Fame in 2013.
