Best of Central Luzon – Komedya De Baler

I have seen Baler Komedya maybe a hundred times but everytime i do, i cringe at the way they do their bolo fights using real sharp “itaks”. I read somewhere that this thing started in Baler way back in 1927. It originated in Spain and adapted to be a Baler original. The way komedyantes talk in Buhangin accent called “Lowa” is a legend in itself. Here are some pictures from the Komedya performance in SM Marilao,Bulacan last October 2.

Men in skirts!

No two attires are the same.

Real weapons, real fast.

Look at the medals. First honor.

The guys in pants are the Spanish, the ones in skirts are the Moros. I think.

Hackers delight.

Lovely on the left was a Ms. Baler 2005 contestant. She won the Ms. Talent award. Guess what she did?

Live band, no less.

Always a crowd pleaser.

View from the top.

The wide shot. Props to PhotoStitch.

    Yung ginagawa po nilang bolo fight using real “itak” swords is classical, old style arnis po. Yes, ang arnis po ay hindi paluan ng sticks kundi isang swordfighting art. Nauso lang nitong 20th century ang paggamit ng wooden o rattan sticks for safety kasi nagkakasugatan nga naman noong unang panahon pag seryosohan ang pagpractice. Yung mga sword fight ng Komedya de Baler ay diumano chinoreograph noong 1920s ng isang arnis master from Baler, Aurora. Mula noon hanggang ngayon, mga totoong itak and patalim ang ginagamit nila. Yung nakikita nating combination ng itak at patalim ay ay tinatawag sa arnis na “espada y daga” o “sword and dagger”. Pati yung mga galaw at pagporma ng mga kasali sa comedya eh talaga nga namang arnis na arnis.
