My Resignation from the Mataw Guro Association

Posted on July 12, 2013 at 11:25am 0 Comments

Hello to All,
I am posting my letter of resignation from the Mataw Guro Association, which I have been associated with for a number of years.  I have in the past posted notices about the MGA and their activities and I believe that I should be open with the members of this site who have shared information, ideas and suggestions with me.  It is my belief that the resignation letter is quite clear as to why I resigned from both the MGA Board of Directors…

Modern Arnis HoF - A Honor and an Oversight

Posted on May 6, 2013 at 12:07pm 6 Comments

 Hello Everyone,


 This is another of my occasional posts and opinions.  There are numerous

 halls of fame these days and getting selected for one is generally a

 good thing and worth considering. I tend to stay away from nominating

 people for inclusion in them and follow the news about who is being

 inducted as a news item without making any comments one way or the

 other. However, this one is different because it involves a person…


Want to See a Martial Artist Get Scared?

We both enjoyed the clever way the ad was put together but as I thought about it, the original writer was really on to something with his lead question which he broke into 2 parts, in spite of the poor grammar.

I look forward to meeting you!  We will definitely have to set something up for next summer.  Perhaps we can meet at a central location for the both of us?


In regards to Modern Arnis, I am very, VERY, new.  I began in February of this year.  I wish I had known of it sooner, as I am extremely passionate about it and feel in my element while practicing.  I train at Martial Way self defense center in Milton, VT.  My instructor is John Connors, and the owner of the center is Dave Quinlan.  Both are black belts under Professor Presas.
