A southpaw, Flash Elorde was known for his boxing skills and speed. Writer Robert Lipsyte once described his style as the "subtle little temple-dancer moves". He studied Balintawak Eskrima from his father "Tatang" Elorde who was the Eskrima champion of Cebu, from whom he learned his innovative footwork and maneuvers. Elorde's footwork from eskrima has been adopted by many boxers, including his friend Muhammad Ali, which influenced the out-boxer style of boxing.Gabriel Elorde was born in the town of Bogo, Cebu. The youngest of 15 children, he came from a poor family.
