Cacoy Canete

Cacoy Canete

Supreme Grand Master and the youngest of eight brothers and four sisters. Cacoy was born in August 1919 in San Fernando, Cebu, Philippines. The seven elder Canete brothers learned the basics of Eskrima from their father, Gregorio, and uncles Gavino and Pedro(Gregorio's brothers), and Juancho de la Cuesta(their mother's brother). Cacoy, on the other hand, was introduced to boxing at age five, and to Eskrima two years later by his elder brother Filemon or Momoy. Eskrima is a family affair for the siblings.
