History of Sport : Remy Presas. Remy Amador Presas (December 19, 1936 – August

Arnis (also called Kali or Eskrima) is a generic term for the deadly martial arts of the
Philippines. It contains both barehand and weaponary arts - everything that has got to
do with fighting. The barehand combat include boxing, wrestling, grappling, pressure
points and locks.

Arnis and other martial arts are known as forms of self-defense. They are not used to

Name of Sport : Bowling

History of Sport : A British anthropologist, Sir Flinders Petrie, discovered in the 1930's
a collection of objects in a child's grave in Egypt that appeared to him to be used for a
crude form of bowling. If he was correct, then bowling traces its ancestry to 3200 BC.

Bowling has been known by such names as: bowls, skittles, kegling, ninepins, Dutch
pins and quilles. The word bowl could be derived from the Saxon bolla which meant
"bubble" originally, but which later came to mean anything spherical.

Bowling was brought to America by British, German, and Dutch settlers. ... Proprietor
Joe Thum developed the unified standards with the United Bowling Clubs in New York
and in 1895, the American Bowling Congress was formed. Around this time,
women began to become more involved with the sport of bowling.

Rules and Regulations : A game of bowling consists of ten frames. In each frame, the
bowler will have two chances to knock down as many pins as possible with their bowling
ball. In games with more than one bowler, as is common, every bowler will take their
frame in a predetermined order before the next frame begins. If a bowler is able to
knock down all ten pins with their first ball, he is awarded a strike. If the bowler is able to
knock down all 10 pins with the two balls of a frame, it is known as a spare. Bonus
points are awarded for both of these, depending on what is scored in the next 2 balls
(for a strike) or 1 ball (for a spare). If the bowler knocks down all 10 pins in the tenth
frame, the bowler is allowed to throw 3 balls for that frame. This allows for a potential of
12 strikes in a single game, and a maximum score of 300 points, a perfect game.
