Hello brothers and sisters in FMA...
I currently live in the Pismo Beach area for work, and am seeking a guro and / or training partners in The San Luis Obispo/Atascadero/ Santa Maria region.
My background is in Lucaylucay Kali/JKD and Emperado Kajukenbo, but it's been decades since I trained properly.
Before I get any more incompetent , I'd like to get my basics back on track. I can go as far as Santa Barbara, but only on week-ends.
Any info would be appreciated.
Hey man, I know its tough to find a training partner when new to a location. Try meetups.com . You might find someone in your area interested to train. I just moved into OC from Manila and am a 25 year Ilustrisimo practitioner. It took me awhile to find a training partner down here too. Let me know if your'e in the area. Good luck..
Check out Sifu Willie Soriano, he is in Santa Maria and teaches DP and Kaju
Contact Tom Meadows. He's in Los Osos, has a background in the same arts you list. I've known Tom since we met at the 1st WEKAF world championships in Cebu in 1989. He holds guro rank under Dan Inosanto (and was Guro Dan's first world champion in any style) and has master rank under Cacoy Canete. He's also the founder and GM of Latigo y Daga. * I see you posted the same inquiry last July, and had trouble reaching Tom then. Try this number: 805-268-9730
Sorry. Would like to help, but my part of the California Central Coast is the Monterey Bay area. When were you with Lucaylucay? I was with Guros Ted, Tanya and Lucky from 1980 to 1987.
