I do not know if you got my email and phone number when I momentarily posted it... I will try and get in touch with you through this site in a few weeks. I am dropping 20 to 30 lbs....going from 190 to around 160 if possible, so as to be better conditioned for martial arts and living...

Nice talking with you!

I worked in Silicon Valley as a system administrator for a couple of years and when NASDAQ and Silicon Valley crashed, and the biotech that I worked for went right along with it. I decided to not leave right away given all the martial arts in the area.

When in California I spent a little time with everyone that I could meet because the area has great historical value for FMA. I studied Inayan with Jason & Jena Inay in reg classes as well as with Mr. Petersen and David Ruiz at Mike Inay's old home whenever time permitted. Then I went to Stockton and studied with Guro Carlito Bonjoc (Mata Sa Bagyo, Cabales Serada), Maestro Dexter Labanog (SLD, Baha La Na), and Baha La Na (GM Tony Somera, & Eugene, Ed, Sam Terry Joven...the whole group) it was a great time.

I have not done anything in a while but am getting back in to it as we speak. I am ready to jump back in if I can find the time, the right people and do not have too far to travel.

Marc, where do you practice in Chicago, IL? Can you give me the style name(s), the address(es), a phone number and the meet-up times? I studied for a while in Silicon Valley and Stockton, CA and am back here in Chicago and am thinking about getting back in to the arts. Thanks!
