“Roger M. Agbulos, a Producer and Martial Arts Grand Master, is working diligently to become Hollywood’s premiere Fight Stunt Coordinator. Roger was exposed to the Filipino Martial Arts at an early age. He decided to take the path of learning from Edgar Sulite, the head of the Lameco Eskrima group.

After Edgar Sulite’s death, he continued to pursue the Lameco primary Arts, the original DeCampo Eskrima 1-2-3 and Kali Illustrisimo. At one point, he came under the tutelage of Grandmasters Christopher Ricketts and Rey Galang. Throughout the years, Roger has come to create his own martial arts style that emphasizes on short and mid-range techniques, as well as long-range weapons combat that does not generally focus on blocking an attack but more on disrupting his opponent. He looks forward to becoming a dynamic Fight Coordinator in the Hollywood Film Industry.”
