FMA Digest Competitor of the Year Award 2009

Recieving this award was like to me, wining the WEKAF World or USFMAF World and at the same time a humbling experience. I am the first to ever recieve this award in the history of the magazine.There are thousands of fighters out there, and hundreds of masters and guros around the world. I asked the Editor Steven Dowd why I was picked and he said it was my attitude to competition, that had earned it. Yes, it was noted that I fought many times, in many places, but it was my possitive attitude that it does not matter if I win, loose or get draw. That fact that I just loved the thrill of the match themselves. He said it was the willingness to get with others to teach them how to compete in the different circuits. It reminded me of something a friend, Guro Jeff Sumasario said about me that he never fought a guy who would beat the crap out of you and then sit down end explain how he did it and give you pointers on how to get better. The editor of FMA Digest asked me to write an article on what tips I could give other FMA practicioners, and wrote a very technical article with a lot of tips to make any fighter of any system better. These are just my thoughts. Good luck out there.
