When Training Alone

Time spent with just yourself and your sword, knife or other martial skill covers majority of your training time. This is the time of perfection in your technique and mastery over your body, strategy and tactics. When training alone, this is the time to really slow things down, break down and dissolve and refine your technique and find your physical and intellectual martial…

Goodbye friend

Back home with a hot cup of coffee on a gray day.  Just got home from my friend's funeral.  Grand Master Tony Somera was laid to rest today.  18 years ago I met him.  He was then Master Somera, teaching under Grand Master Leo Giron.  I spent many years under GM Tony's tutelage; from 1995 until 2009.  He was a great teacher, a funny friend and great caretaker of the art of Escrima.  He was also best man at my wedding.  I traveled to England, Germany and Italy with GM Tony as well as many…

Technical Walk Through of MyFMA.net Hangout on Air System

Hello All!

As I write this there are nearly 3,000 members of MyFMA.net.  I know most of you come here to enjoy the gathering of ideas between FMA martial artists, and to watch videos, not to talk shop about computers but a few of you may be interested in a technical walk-through the system used to perform the "Google+ Hangouts on Air" (HoA) interviews.

Approximately 4 months ago while chatting with Guro Carlito Bonjoc on the phone, I asked him why he didn't use…

Super Typhoon hits Philippines

My thoughts and prayers goes out to my friends and their families we know in Cebu. As we know currently the largest Typhoon to ever make land fall happen to the islands of Leyte, Samar, Cebu as well other smaller islands. With winds of over 150-195 mph in what was considered a category five hurricane force winds very few building can survive this! Typical framed homes will be destroyed. There also was storm surge of up to 10 feet in the coastal areas. All of us in the FMA community will have…

To Breath, Move & Focus on Action!

So I guy I know sent this in chain e-mail on Survival methods I thought he had some good points.

Breathe! - Fear restricts breath. Practice breathing during your training, and in situations that cause you apprehension and fear. Be mindful of your breathing when you're feeling nervous and take control of it.

Move! - TOWARD and INTO the Attacker! It's the opposite of freezing up or retracting, and it's the only place you can effectively harm him with a counter-attack. Press…

What is an Advanced Technique and how do we get there?

Then you are taught to strike at specific target. This striking is done with fluid complete motion. Great so now you know how to hit something quickly and cleanly. So we have progressed from the most basic your teacher has slow you long range…
