Please keep GM Lazo in your thoughts and prayers. He has been battling cancer for some time. Last Sunday, he suffered a stroke and has been unresponsive for a couple of days. Today his oxygen level dropped low and he was transferred to the Special Care unit at Moffitt.

GM Lazo and his family can use all of the FMA community's support through this difficult time.

The world has lost a humble and generous man. GM Lazo shared his knowledge, love, and passion for the Filipino Martial Arts with anyone willing to learn. I was blessed to have had him in my life.

From his daughter, Christine M. Lazo:

"He left us this morning with a rainey cloudy sky, and as we walked out of the hospital it was a blue sky without a cloud in sight with the sun shining..."
GM Lazo and his family are in our prayers.
The FMA world has lost another great teacher and person.
We are happy to have crossed sticks with him many times and learned valuable lessons.
Grandmaster Federico T. Lazo passed away on Monday, January 25th, 2010. A mass will be celebrated at 10:00 a.m., on Friday, January 29, 2010 at St. Mark the Evangelist Catholic Church with burial to follow at Trinity Memorial Gardens. A pot-luck reception will follow for family and friends, who wish to celebrate his life.

Those who wish to send flowers may have them delivered to Stowers Funeral Home. Donations may be made to Moffitt Cancer Center Foundation (for Research) in his memory. Contributions can be made online at or envelopes will be provided at the mass.

I just realized I have lost a friend.Grandmaster Lazo and I corresponded on and off and he was always offering to teach me Tagalo since my field of Knowledge is Languages.He was most generous in his sharing of his deep knowledge of FMA as well.
I will pray for his sould and will always regret postponing several times my promised visit to his home.
To his Family ,my deepest condolences you have a friend here in Venezuela.

We are deeply saddened to hear of the passing of GM Federico & offer our most heartfelt condolescences to the Lazo family & his students. Although our correspondence has been sporadic over the last several years, my wife & I cherished every greeting that he & Cleofe bestowed on us. Manong Fred was always willing to share insights into the art we were both so passionate about , including our Ilocano & Pilipino heritage, (perhaps to find some family ties between us.)

I was sincerely touched by his generosity & kindness in offering me with one his handcrafted garote. Although our meeting & his presentation never came to fruition, his wisdom & knowledge were the true gifts he provide us all.

May God bless Ricky, Christine & the Lazo family & students with strength during this most difficult time. Do find comfort in knowing that he touched our lives by making us better individuals.
