Jose Rizal, Martial Artist explained

Having been born from well-to-do families, they had access to quality education and martial arts training as well. The Luna brothers are a good example, being known for their swordsmanship and firearm skills. Another one of their members, Jose P. Rizal, wasn’t a pushover as well.

Though he looks great in portraits, the real Rizal wasn’t that physically impressive. Filipinos are known for their lack of stature, and Rizal was even smaller, with a height of only five feet! Yet still, throughout his life, part of his education was learning to fight.
