I can relate to your very good comments, thanks for doing your part to promoate the Art's. GM Art Gonzales has come to our school several times and showed us his systems and styles, we enjoyed it very much and welcome any school to come to class and show another angle of our culture from the jungles.
You and others will remember my first place trophy was hand crafted and I personnelly made each one myself. I wanted something fighters would be proud to take home and hopefully, not just throw it in a box. But show it off as a piece of history. It is called the Lapu Lapu trophy, thanks to all Escrimadors.
Please come and visit us at: 9025 North West Lane, Stockton, CA 95210. Class is every Saturday from 11:00-1:00 behind Stockton Christian School, where we had the tournament, or email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org or call 209-405-3189. God Bless America.
