The group decided to change the format of the traditional duplo and rename it balagtasan, in honor of Balagtas. The first balagtasan was held in Tayuman, Manila on April 6, 1925. Several pairs of poets joined the literary joust but Collantes and De Jesus were the most popular. The organizers pitted the two in a rivalry that culminated in a contest for the title of 'Hari ng Balagtasan' (King of the Balagtasan).

Ang duplo ay palaisipang tula na walang sukat, tugma at talinghaga samantalang ang Karagatan ay may sukat at pagandahan ng tula. Mas mahirap ang karagatan kaysa sa duplo pero mas maganda ang karagatan kaysa sa duplo... Meron ding duplo at balagtasan. Ang balagtasan ay may pinaghahandaan samantalang ang duplo ay wala.
