An Instructor's Responsibility

I wrote about it on my blog. Please, check it out and let me know what you do to be the best instructor you can…

From Gm Art Gonzalez Tenio's Decuerdas " The Bad Boy"

From Art Gonzalez...



 Imagine in your mind. The images of a good person and a bad person.

Appearances and intentions can betray you. When a person appears to be good. But, has bad intentions and is prepared to deceive. You should use your intuition.



Your intuition, “Gut Instinct,” is a strong insight into situations and people. We all have this insight, but many of us do not listen to it. Listen to it....…

Footwork Fun

The Filipino Martial Arts have great footwork, and I make sure to include footwork in warmups and cool downs for each class. My latest blog post is musing on how to improve my footwork as I tire.

"Footwork is a mystery to me. As I tire, my footwork declines faster than my arm/hand motions. The obvious answer to this is that I practice the upper body motions more than the lower body. I wonder if fine motor skills..."…

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

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…

The Awkwardness of New Techniques

Combative Dreams

Recently I started watching the HBO series “walking dead”. It is a show about apocalyptic events on earth that has a majority of the population turning into zombies and a few remaining humans left fighting for their survival. Turns out the zombies are attracted to human beings and feed on them; the zombies can only be killed by damaging the brain or removing their heads which separates the nerve endings that support movement to their extremities. So far the show has them being killed by the…

Training "Por Vida"

Training “Por Vida”

Finding the martial art of Eskrima was an accident of good fortune. I say this because the timing was right for a marriage between my needs and that of learning an incredible martial art style that is by far one of the most well rounded arts I had ever seen. Many years ago while working as a maintenance electrician at Rare Parts Incorporated in Stockton I had the great fortune of meeting and befriending Senior Master Jorge Magana, at the time he didn’t hold this…
