"Even though I met him only once during Memorial Day weekend in 2000 I still remember his bottle breaking and his great demeanor and he also was a ladies magnet! May he find comfort in his final resting place."

Grandmaster Warlito "Lito" Concepcion

The Filipino martial arts community lost one of its most colorful and beloved leaders last night in the person of Grandmaster Warlito “Lito” Concepcion, affectionately nicknamed “Datu Puti” (because of his gray hair) by many of his friends. With immediate family by his bedside, he quietly and serenely passed away, having accomplished everything he wanted to do in this life. A memorial and “celebration” of Kuya Lito’s life will be held in the Greater San Francisco Bay Area. This event will be…See More

Rank vs Virtue in the Martial Arts

Posted on June 1, 2013 at 5:22am 10 Comments

It’s been almost six months since I cutover from PMAA (Philippine Martial Arts Academy) to PMAA (Pamanang Mandirigma Arnis Academy). It is time to recognize the progress the students have made. It is usually done via rank promotions but with this new academy, I want to deemphasize rank and emphasize virtue. So I wrote my thoughts down and am posting it here for feedback, both good and bad, and for advice, hopefully all good. (smile) Thank you in advance.

I spoke with Mercy (Mrs. Presas). All she can say right now is that GGM's body will be brought back to Hinigaran. I will announce dates and times as funeral arrangements…
