Lastra Brotherhood of Arnis students at Arlington, Virginia - 1984

Front Row Lto R: Glen Moore, Eddie Lastra

Back row L to R: Ros Toro, Jorge Lastra, Ed Padlan, Marlon Fuentes

Comment by Badger Johnson on August 19, 2011 at 6:11pm

At the time Jorge called his style 'Arnis Lastra - Arnis Lanada', from his family style and his work with Porfirio Lanada.

Comment by Badger Johnson on August 19, 2011 at 6:09pm
We had one seminar with Mat Marinas and his students. Pananandata is his style. Mat showed us a very elusive horizontal twirl, which drew a #1 counter, but evaded it and hit on the opposite line. Very slick.
