A Filipino is by nature a warrior. Ask a foreigner about Filipinos, most likely what he'll answer is either a smiling hospitable Asian or a fierce fighter. They think of Filipinos as a person who has a knife hidden somewhere in the body ready to stab anyone foolish enough to get us pissed. Our heritage says it all, we are fighters. The boys who killed Magellan, the north Luzon Head Hunters, the Moro warriors who don't seem to care about bullets and of course Manny Pacquiao. These are guys fighting for a worthwhile ideal, but for the pinoy gang fights, I can't really say what their ideals are.
But these gang fights are among the proof of Pinoy ingenuity. The gang members had developed weapons to hurt, maim or kill from everyday items. Aside from the balisongs, metal pipes, and stones, we have devised deadlier weapons. I am not writing about this to teach how to do it, and definitely don't make me responsible for any damage inflicted by these. This is not a tutorial, but a demonstration of how our gangs try to hurt each other, and hurt others too in the process.
I will write again about other stuff that our gangs use so watch out for it.
