The TRACMA Creed

TRACMAIt is noted in the TRACMA Creed that RBM Trovador dedicates his special talents and skills for the glorification of the Almighty. To Ka Badong, as he is fondly called, TRACMA is only an ‘instrument of the divine plan’. Hence, he encourages all TRACMA members to be grateful and humble. TRACMA gives utmost importance to obedience and humility.

Trovador Ramos, Sr. knows that health and wellness is one of the most important treasures in life. So in the TRACMA Creed, he emphasized the “mastery and practice of martial arts” as a form of physical conditioning to maintain a good health and fitness for the body.

TRACMA was also developed as a sport and a form of relaxation that “enhances skills, and develops reflexes, resourcefulness, and creativity.”

It promotes the “true spirit of sportsmanship and fair play” which are the fundamentals of friendship and fair play.

Never to be used in frivolity or vain glorious display

Not to oppress but rather to defend the weak

Not to suppress, but rather to uphold justice.

For him, every individual has dignity as a human being, having been created by God.
