    I always hear the the word dumog from the elders in my province (visayas), as far as I know the word dumog means fighting on the ground (meaning cat fight). I never thought of it as a martial art, but a few Arnis/Kali practicing friends keep of mentioning it. Did some research and it is actually what farmers learned and developed while wrestling with Carabao's (WaterBuffalos). Si it's a form of wrestling or ground fighting. Anyone know about this since I have very little knowledge of the art.


    Thanks
