He added the selection for Benguet’s delegates were done during the recent Panagbenga Arnis National Championships organized by IMAFP-Baguio Chapter held in February.

“Yung screening natin was done during our recent competition where participants from the locals including visitors from other regions compete para ma-screen natin ang mga potential na athletes needed for the up-coming competition,” Buyogan said.

“Hopefully maging maganda ang preparations ng mga ipapadala natin na athletes para marami rin tayong masungkit na awards,” Buyogan added.

The competition is in support of Republic Act 9850, declaring arnis as the national sport and martial art. (Mark Victor Pasagoy)
