Philippine Catsclaw Martial Arts Association
Philippine Catsclaw Martial Arts Association Kuwait – is a non-sectarian, non-profitable, and non-political association that helps individuals build self-confidence, physical fitness and mental alertness through martial arts. It was founded with a sole purpose of educating our OFWs the importance of martial arts that can and may be use against life threatining situation. It was not formed to promote violence or to harm people but to motivate discipline and self-control. It also serves as an alternative to overcome the feeling of loneliness within as an overseas worker.
The association does not distinguish their members through dialects, regions or religions. It is not a prerequisite or an obstacle to build one firm association aiming to promote unity, equality, and camaraderie. Occupation, education or standard of living does not constitute discrimination among members nor prevent each individual to have harmonious relations with each other. All are welcome, all are guided, all taught and all are even considered as one. Every practitioner does not only learn the art of empty hand fighting, but they do also congregate with brothers and sisters in arms, a spirit that will remain and always be remembered. They have acquired their identity through discipline, cooperation and assistance not only to their members but also to their community. All the teachings and values they have learned from the art do not exist only inside the gym, but as well as with their daily activities.
After years of foundation, CATSCLAW has been active, cooperative and popular within the community. They have proven countless participation not only in the important events of the Filipino Community but also of the host country.
Even being in a low profile situation, they were still identified and considered as one of the solid association in the community.The principles and values that they learned will be surely passed on not only to their members but also to their countrymen and people from all walks of life.Being an accredited member of the Philippine Embassy-Kuwait and the umbrella organization of the Filipino Community, , they vow to remain firm in their objectives and will continuously support whatever projects and activities of the Philippine Embassy and Filipino Community.
