Just received news from the Javier family that GGM Isidro Javier passed away a few minutes ago in Arroyo Grande Ca.
For those who have never met Manong Isidro he was a decorated World War 2 veteren and a great Escrimador.
Please keep him and his family in your prayers.

I will be on Boracay Island in October and want to find a school that I can train with while I am there. Does anyone know what schools are local to the island? Any help would be appreciated. My FMA background is in Kabaroan, some Serrada, Lameco, La Coste, and Filipino Boxing. I also train in JKD and Muay Thai.
Yours in the Arts,

So he decided to have a seminar for his group. I agreed but I… Continue
