But putting the humor aside for moment lets look at some of the Filipino American systems, these are made out of piece…Continue

Like the ancient warriors of the Philippines who smeared the tips of their arrows, spears or blades with deadly poision, the KOMBOKAN is happy to share techniques that could come in handy in case of attack. I call this the Labuyo or "Bird's Eye Chilli".

All will end in a fruitful venture."

I was reading an article while waiting for my son in Reader's Digest about the about the Military's Mindfullness program, and the work they have done to reduce PTSD. as I was reading it the author was talking about the two types of minds they had noted during parachute training. They said there were people who stress and function only OK to poorly and those who when stressed minds become clear and they function beast. They had found that those who had this trait where least likely to suffer…Continue
