If you would like to participate or have any students who would like to have an exhibition fight,
please email me at kajudragon@sbcglobal.net

Here's the info (email trail) I sent to everyone ...

Guro Arnel,

As you know we are having our next sparring exhibition on April 13. Normally we have about 30 fights in: boxing, Muay Thai and MMA (pankration).

However this time, I would also like to add stick sparring, both live and padded, and possibly knives too. These would be set fights in our cage, so we would have to reach out to other FMA clubs and see if we can get some Eskrimadors to participate; single fights, not tournament style.

Let me know if you want to pursue this. I'm asking you since you are the head instructor of our FMA program at the Den. I think it will be an excellent way to showcase and highlight the Filipino Arts.

Peace,
Sigung Jeff

Good Morning UFMAC..

Again let me congratulate UFMAC on our 2nd annual tournament...it was much appreciated by parents, students and other folks new to FMA...

On that note, I would like to invite any and/or all FMA Eskrimadors to Dragon Den's Exhibition Sparring day on April 13th at "Da Den"...
Based on our success at the UFMAC tournament, Sigung Jeff has added a FMA section to the event...
what is required is for any FMA School or club to participate,
...is to respond to me with your Eskrimador's skill level, age and event style (i.e. padded point, continous padded point, Live (WEKAf) )

We at Dragons Den will try to match up folks for an appropriate match. Again be aware this is NOT a tournament, no medals or place given,
Just away another way to promote FMA/UFMAC and a chance to have fun...

Please let myself or Guro Arnel know if you have any questions...thanks for your interest and support..

Professor Ku'e
