Lets put on the pads and see!

Back in the day in  Leo's basement.... If someone had a question about a technique Leo would get up and show you how to execute it. it would usually leave no doubt in your mind of the effectiveness of the technique. Sometimes after practice some of the senior graduates/instructors who would hang out in the basement after Leo would leave.. would be working on techniques from the class or other things they may have learned elsewhere. Of course arguments would arise on wether it would work at…

Guro Jamie Lagang New Instructor Bahala Na Multi-style Escrinma

Jamie Lagang

In the early 1980s, Jamie Lagang was exposed to the art of escrima by GM Regino Illustrisimo. His parents would often bring him when visiting GM Regino and his wife, who were close friends of the family.

Questionable Intent

Here is a link to Guro Glen Abrescy's blog spot, please see Glen's responce to some cleverly edited video "Propaganda". This video was made obviously to attack Leo's former Head Instructor Dexter Labonog and his son Michael Giron. I do not think that when Leo made this video, he intended it to be used in this manner. This is truly "disrespectful" to the memory of a truly honorable…
