2010- 1st Annual Gathering of the Tribes- Philippine Edition

Some of you may know that TINK and I are going to the Philippines for our overdue honeymoon. What you may not know is I was invited by Guro Michael Tuscano to stay with him and have him be our guide. I have been trying to find out the true history of Kuntaw and it started in his area of the Philippines. I told him I would be open to teach some of his students of what i know. So he decided to have a seminar for his group. I agreed but I also sugegested that he open it up to any other groups in his area. I agreed to do the seminar for free. He could charge a small fee to cover expenses and put the rest of the proceeds into his organization. I think he was a bit amazed that i would do this. I referred Guro Mike to check out the posts about our Gathering stateside.I had been trying to make contacts in the Philippines to find the old timers in the art. I finally contacted Grand Master Shanfrank Aycocho and he offered to be our guide thru the Northern philippines and drive us down to meet Guro Mike- a 12 hour drive. When told about the seminar idea- he said he too would do it for free and has stepped up to the plate. Meanwhile Guro Mike contacted a local Arnis master to also participate. Now it gets better. Guro Mike reserved the Aquinas University to hold our event there.
here is a note he sent to me
"Good day Master, I started inviting participants of different Martial Arts Club here, and I also invite some of the Barangay Police/Tanod of the nearest Barangay in Legaspi City including some Security Agencies. And I also write the Managers of different Malls here if they are interested to send their security guards for this training. Yesterday some foreign Martial Artist contacted me for reservation. Master, if there are some Instructors who would like to join to us, the registration fee is for the foods only and the accommodation are at their own risk. I hope it will be a great day for all of us. Thanks very much for the support. God bless you. "I hope to keep everyone informed as it goes along it's steamroller path. Buzz
