- CHESS MASTER- There was no picture of it, but, Jose Rizal is also good in playing chess. At that time, he was considered as one of the best chess players in our country.
- GUN SLINGER- Almost nobody knows that Rizal was a good gun slinger. In fact, you can find a specimen of Rizal's guns, "the smith" and wesson number 3 revolver, or popularly known as the Magnificient, that can be found at the AFP Museum at Camp Aguinaldo in Quezon City. If you still doubt it that Rizal is a good gun slinger, read El Filibusterismo, especially the part where Simoun AKA Crisostomo Ibarra showed his gun to Tales. Rizal was just learning on the game while he was writing the novel.
- LEARNED THE GAME of JUDO- Rizal was the first Southeast Asian ever to master the art of japanese sport. He even put up some GYMs in the cities of Calamba and Dapitan, which became the start of various judo grassroots there. Thinking that Jose Rizal was still alive today?
