"Kamaytao is both the way of the empty and weaponed Hand. Hence, KamayTao training involves also the use of weapons and emphasizes the human personality to whom these Hands are attached. The fact that each student has a very personal way of using and relating to his/her Hands, the KamayTao training aims, therefore, at the maximization of this aspect so that a very personal style also evolves in each student while training in KamayTao. All the more, KamayTao becomes a very personal self-defense art if we consider now the whole body and psychology of each student, his strengths and natural patterns of motion. In this way, KamayTao practitioner becomes an instinctive and intuitive martial artist able to freely express his/herself in any urban combat situation."
