Cabales met a man named Feliscimo Dizon on the docks of Manila. Dizon taught Cabales the stick fighting skills. They trained together on a daily basis with a round kamagong, dagger and empty-hands. Cabales trained hard and became fluent in the many aspects of the system. Through many traveling experiences he made his home in Stockton, CA. In 1966 he decided to teach the Serrada art to the general public. He always enjoyed sharing his many stick-fighting adventures through his rough life in the Philippines and United States.

He is greatly missed in the martial art community and will always be remembered as one of the greatest Grandmasters of the Filipino Martial Arts.
