This may already have been a topic but I think that with the untimely passing of Master Tony Diego, that the topic of preserving FMA needs to be discussed again.
For me as a Filipino-American, FMA is a rare jewel of the my culture that I feel should be promoted and shown not only to non-filipinos, but younger filipinos, especially those who live in and were born in America.
As instructors we wish to teach anyone who has a sincere determination to learn. For those of you who feel you have been successful in targeting filipino youth and youth in general, how did you go about doing it? Does it already happen and am I just paranoid. I just feel that, regardless of style, the younger generation should know that the Philippines has a bunch of formidable martial arts styles that they can choose from.
What do you guys think?

Other than in the Philippines I have never seen a children's program in the United States as big as Bahala Na Multi-Style.
Bahala Na is # 1 when it comes to children FMA programs. Maybe other systems can adopt their programs if the information is available.
Wow!!!!!!!!!! Even if you had assistants, I have no idea how you did that. Wow!!!!! Definitely alot of hard work from you manong Malmo.
