In Search of Good FMA

I read many posts about this place and that place has good FMA that we call Arnis Eskrima or Kali, here in the US and abroad. But leaves me wondering where one can find good FMA. In my travels I found that where you have sizable Filipino population, there is FMA. I have found pockets in Florida, Hawaii, Nevada and Southern and Northern California. I have heard of pockets back east and down in Texas and up in Washington. I know that there are places overseas like Mexico, one of my students found… Continue

Post Seminar Day

Well its Monday and back at work today. Went and supported Guru Eds Kali Silat group in Passada yesterday with Guro Roger Agbulos teaching also. I enjoyed watching Guru Ed teach his Indonisian Silat, he is very fluid in his motions with his whole body in rhythem with it. I taught at the end of the day about the use of the live hand, right out of one my articles. I did this because I have that typically found that most people who do FMA do not fully understand the use of the live hand, empty…

JEFF "STICKMAN" FINDER RECEIVES {WSEF} MASTER'S DEGREE





STICKMAN'S ESCRIMA BLOG



Of personal significance is that I received a Master's certificate in Escrima. Frankly, it's a bit hard for me to write objectively about this. I take pride in accomplishments but I'm not much into self-aggrandizement; I jokingly refer to this as "my official getting old award", which is far more truthful than I'd like to admit. Still, this is…

SURO EMANUEL HART SENDS REGARDS TO GM *D*

Sir, I wanted to thank you for your words you posted on my page earlier

practitioners. It is truly unfortunate that we have not crossed paths up

to this point. I look forward to that day. It is great to see the

activity you have generated for Serrada and the… Continue
