GM Rogers,
It was a honor to work with your students....Their passion and enthusiasm is a true reflection of your teaching. You run a great Dojo and anytime you want me back I would be honored to advance their knowledge in what I know and teach.

GM Rogers! I now fully see a new weapon. Not sure how to design it, but it applies the shielding on one weapon hand, and it would of course come right from this art. I have carbon gloves but they are not strong enough to take the impact, and probably not impervious to cuts. But a well designed glove, worn on just ONE hand would allow some level of direct hits from an edged weapon, but you must be able to move your hand completely unrestricted 360 degrees. This means of course you are going to be using your lead weapon and hand as a shield to penetrate the opponents lead weapon hand. Just a thought.

My friend, have you seen the following video, "Zulu & Filipino Kali Stick Fighting"? I know you want to see this, and if you contact him, maybe he has more footage available for you to study. Mr Burton had it on his page:

If the link does not work, go to YouTube and search by the title name, or go to his YouTube channel at: BurtonRichardson

Have a good day!

Seasons Greetings GM Rogers,
I see that you've never forgotten one of our first lessons that we both learned from Great Grand Pofessor John K. Wong in the area of projecting energy upon an object. Within the Filipino martial arts, this type of skill is known as "Healot". Not everyone has been capable of sucessfully accomplishing this seemingly difficult exercise; but obviously you have. (Note) In the photo shot I am using this inner technique while utilizing an escrima tactic; GM Richard S. Bustillo is observing at the left.
"I highly commend you" Take Great Care!

Regal Regards!

***Way Back in the Day***

Greetings GM Rogers;
It is simply amazing to see how far you have come & are going in the field of external and internal martial arts. When I view your unique, rare, & historical photo's, they remind me of what our GGM John K. Wong taught us: "That God is indeed our internal connecting power & divine mentor". Thank you so very much for sharing your candid memories with the FMA community at large. Your photo's not only demonstrate your long years of mastery & expertise; but they also reflect the non-dying spirit that you carried back in the day, and still do carry today. I salute you my Afrikan Amerikan Brother & job well done!

Grandeur Respect,
GM "D"/WSEF

Greetings Brother Rogers,
I just want to say that it was a total joy, honor, & a great pleasure speaking with you recently. To circle back around the mountain to the place where we both started from; was like travelling back into time to a distant world. Like most serious martial arts fanatics; once we begin talking about the arts the conversation can be endless. Thanks a mill for posting the old Dan Inosanto/Lucaylucay 1983, seminar pictures. Looking at those old photo's brings back warm memories. So stay in touch!
Highest Regards!
GM "D"/WSEF

Greetings GM Rogers;
when I finally realized that the 1983, photo's that I had the pleasure of viewing on your FMA.net site were some new & old photo's of you & Guro Dan Inosanto, I literally wanted to cry. I've always kept you in my thoughts as one of the most genuine & one of the most highly talented martial artists worldwide. And your 1983, photo's taken at my "Kali/Jeet Kune Do/ Inosanto & Ted Lucaylucay Workshop" reminded me of the firey passion that you & I expressed back in those days of old. It's good to know & to see that you are still around my African/Asian brother. "Take Genuine Care" & let's stay in touch.

Royal Regards!
