FMA - Hollywood is using it why isn't TFC (or GMA)

Posted on August 29, 2014 at 10:09pm 0 Comments

Maybe I am wrong for I have not watched all TFC teleserye out there.  I am of course aware of a few special characters and shows such as si Bro, Scheduler and of course KuTe.  I have had many problems with these shows, for somehow logic gets thrown out the windows in many of these cases.  I am not here to talk about that, what I am confused about is how these tv shows with the ability to influence so many filipinos choose not to employ things that are truly pinoy.

I am talking about…

how far will you help a person from another school?

Posted on March 31, 2010 at 12:26am 8 Comments

What I love about the FMA Community is the people are generally friendly. Over time you develop strong bonds with these people and look forward to seeing them in other tournaments throughout the years. But no matter how "friendly" you get, it's still a competition.

So I ask you, if another school were to ask you to help them become better competitors? Would you help? And if so how much? And would you do it for free?

Please don't misread my comment about beingthe only one (FMA school) around believe me that is awesome as far as business goes. What I'm asying is that the public do not have any idea what FMA is. I am frustrated that financialy I cannot promote the school the way I would like. But I am doing some teaching at the local park to get attention from the public and we are kind of going on tour to all the local public parks in our area this summer. In the hopes that come the fall and its too cold I will have enough interest built up and students that I can invest in a school. I definately want to talk to you about marketing and getting my school supplies through you. That is what I like about this site we can keep it in the family like a chmaber of commerce.
