As mentioned in our September 2010 Announcements
, we will have T-shirts that represent MyFMA.net - Filipino Martial Arts Network and its members available in the near future. We are working with Anthony Sell and a few other individuals on possible designs and artwork.
On the back of each shirt, we want to display the various styles/systems represented by MyFMA.net members. In order to get this project off the ground, we are asking that every style/system be sponsored by a donation of $50
. Any member, group, school, or organization may sponsor any recognized Filipino Martial Arts style/system
that they wish. Multiple entities may also sponsor the same style/system.
Every style/system that is sponsored will have its name clearly written across the back of the shirt - probably in a recognized design. We will not be able to accommodate the various logos of each style/system on this first design. That is something we would be excited about doing in future projects.
Note: Placement of each style/system name will be displayed on a first come basis. (Unless determined differently by our members.)
We do not have a current deadline for the project, but the sooner styles/systems are sponsored the sooner we can make the shirts available.
We envision FMA events being overrun with our members sporting their new "Filipino Martial Arts Network" shirts! Through our combined unity, the FMA community will flourish and prosper!
